Mucilage is a gelatinous layer (mesocarp) resulting from the pulping process of coffee. Thanks to its components, it is considered an important substance for the benefit of coffee, as it generates a lot of value for the industry. Over time, new technologies have emerged to find the best use for coffee, which requires asking all the potential uses that can be obtained from each substance. This in order to reduce the pollution generated by these substances such as mucilage. In this case, the mucilage offers added value for obtaining many by-products; As it has many nutrients such as pectins and sugars from which by-products such as medicines and the food industry, chemicals, among others, can be obtained. The way to obtain this substance has carried out a development of technologies for the elimination of this honey; since most of the farms do not have these technologies. This is why the purpose of this research is to inquire about all the by-products that can be generated as a basis for this substance, for the applicability in the Versalles farm, study and evaluate them to determine the most attractive and beneficial by-product for the farm; so that each part of the coffee bean is used to the maximum, since the farm is only limited to selling coffee beans and because the sale price is constantly, it is necessary to look for new outlets, making the most of the use of coffee and finally propose an adaptation strategy to implement it.
