Monica Quispe de Mamani”This is the second time I participate in the Cup of Excellence. There is no doubt that my coffees quality has improved, because we have now handled it well and before we didnt know how to handle it. ” “My husband is who supported me for participating, also my children tell me that we have to handle clean coffee and supported me a lot.” “With the money I get, above all, I will use it to improve my coffee plantations. We are going to plant more coffee; I hope that my coffees quality will be better for next year; I am not just staying here.” “Id tell the other producers to try to handle better your coffee ; we have to handle it cleanly, we have to work more.” Quality Practices The ripe coffee cherry harvest is done manually, process in which the whole family intervenes.
