dream comes true!
(San Pedro Le Laguna)
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.
- Photos below are taken at village coffee-factory,

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.
