Guatemala Take 2 Posted on 2012/03/05 by Lauren Crabbe A woman in traditional Mayan dress carries coffee beans. Maria Eugenia, a child who lives on the farm where we spent most of our time, holds the farm cat. She taught me more Spanish in one week than 4 years of classes. Cherries pulped off of the bean flow into the compost pit where they will eventually turn into fertilizer for the coffee plants. A coffee flower blooms.
