We left the hotel at 7:30am the morning this photo was taken, finally arriving at the farm right before noon. Coffee is a way of life for these farmers, often working from sunrise to sunset and covering large distances on foot to reach the coffee plants that need to be tended that day. The rhythm of work here is more about what needs to get done that day, rather than working a certain amount of hours. It was educational to be on the ground and actually see how much manual labor goes into the agricultural aspect of coffee.
