Quillabamba province coffee region in Peru moments

Manual coffee bean sorting

Quillabamba is a province of La Convencion in Cusco. This region includes several coffee farms located from 1300 to 2000 MASL. Coffee farms are located around Quillabamba where I visited on my last trip. These are divided into several districts including Echarati, Quellouno, Vilcabamba, Santa Ana, Santa Teresa, Maranura, Huayopata, Ocobamba and Incahuasi.

Below are some pictures I took during my last visit to Quillabamba province. Let me know what you think. I will be posting more pictures of my trips to Latin America while coding with coffee.

Most coffee bean sorting is done manually at my friends specialty coffee processing facility Kaffee 3 Granos in Quillabamba. Here I was helping out and sorting some coffee bean on a size 14 sorting shield (saranda in Spanish).

  1. Wondering if it would be possible to purchase any Quillabamba coffee. Especially the one that is roasted in sugar (shiny outside). I usually buy at the market in Cusco when we are down there every couple years, but travel is literally impossible right now. Any way you can help?

    1. Thank you Phil for contacting me. I already reply directly to your email. Please reply to my email and let me know what you think. Take care, cocotu.
