Cultivation and production of coffee always attracted me very much.
And here, in Guatemala, my dream came true.
Coffee trees grow along the streets;

coffee beans are collected and processed in every backyard.

Coffee first drying on the blankets,

then washed, scrubbed, selected, blanded and roasted - making the long way - until it comes into cap.

First lorry brings sacks of coffee to the factory, then it washed (on photo above),
sun dried, and, finally freed from their parchment.

It’s exciting – to see “hills” of fresh coffee beans on the ground.
At this stage beans are brownish-red outside and gray or pistachio inside.

They become dark-brown after roasting.
