The percentage of empty seeds was not affected by altitude, since these were less than 8 percent. This indicates that the plantings from where samples were taken came from selected seeds. Yield from fruit to dry coffee (223.42 to 306.22 kg) was better in plantations established at altitudes greater than 650 m above sealevel. The percentage of dry seed (19.27-9.20 percent) was greater in plantations established at low altitudes. Yields from dry to green (oro) coffee (55.40-58.07 percent) were higher in coffee plantations at higher altitudes than in plantations at low altitudes. The percentage of stained beans (less than 5 percent) was not influenced by altitude, but rather was due to other factors such as poor agronomic management or poor processing.
