"Life on an Organic Coffee Farm"
In January, I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer on a coffee farm outside of Monte Verde, Costa Rica. It is a small, organic coffee farm "La Bella Tica" that literally operates because of the volunteers that come to help out. It was an eye opening experience to learn all that goes into creating this amazing product. As most of you know, one of my favorite things in the world is coffee. I will never think of it now without thinking of this week on the farm and the people who do back breaking work for low pay just to allow us all to drink this beverage. From picking, to drying, to roasting - coffee production is a difficult and labor intensive job! Consider this next time you buy coffee and make sure the growers are receiving fair pay for their hard work! Only buy Fair Trade, Sustainable and Organic Coffee like Bella Tica Organic Coffee.
