How to remove coffee pulp from cherries

How to remove coffee pulp

This was a magical experience when I visited this coffee farm in Quillabamba, Cusco in Peru. Watch the videos below where we used a rustic machine made in Peru to remove the coffee pulp from these juicy cherries.

This farm is located a 1800 MASL in Quellouno town which is part of the municipally city of Quillabamba. Quillabamba is a coffee region in Cusco and its located about 4-5 hours by car away from the main Cusco city. Let me know if you have any questions and/or if you like to get coffee from these farms.

Quellouno Coffee Farm Videos in Cusco Peru

This coffee farm in Quellouno is about 1800 MASL. It was difficult to adapt to the altitude this early in the morning. Some got altitude sickness ‘Soroche’. This is a common experience from rapid transitions from low to high altitude without taking time to acclimate. We started chewing coca leaves to help us. It works! My friend Raul from Kaffee 3 Granos couldn’t handle it even though he lives in a nearby town Quillabamba.

The coffee farm is surrounded by other trees such as bananas, pears and many more typical fruit plants from the region. We got the chance to walk to other coffee farms located in the region. I will post more pictures about this experience very soon.
