Gonzalo found some fertile land in Quillabamba, near Cusco, which has an ideal landscape for growing coffee, and while we were talking, he also spoke of his passion for land management and keeping a natural ecosystem while also growing and harvesting coffee.

Quilla started off small, selling coffee only at local fairs, but his customer base was growing. Gonzalo eventually came across an ideal space for rent right on the Plaza Yanahuara, and he eventually bought the building, which is now Quilla Café. Since the café opened, they have expanded their menu and remodeled their space to accommodate their growing business. The staff at Quilla are kind and attentive. Gonzalo also mentioned that all of the workers also study or are in school because he believes in providing an environment where personal and professional development are priorities.
When we asked Gonzalo about future plans for Quill Café, he was excited to tell us about their new brand and coffee line, Max Quilla. He has also rented a space in Umacollo to open another café, and he is going to be opening a café in Lima within the year. Long-term, Gonzalo is looking forward to opening a Quilla Café in either Montreal or New York.
Quilla Café has an amazing location right on the Plaza Yanahuara. The neighborhood of Yanahuara is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, and the two-conjoined plazas are quite a sight. It has gorgeous palms, shady benches, kids playing, and the Mirador Yanahuara that overlooks the city.
Quilla Café has a wide range submarine sandwiches (15 cm or 30 cm) along with a variety of empanadas. It’s also worth mentioning that they have multiple daily promotions. For example, you can get Café Americano with your choice of muffin for S/7.00 or a 15 cm submarine sandwich, cookie, and a Café Americano for S/11.90.
Quilla Café has an impressive array of drink choices from artisanal beers to homemade juices. They are, of course, known for they’re amazing, locally roasted coffee.
