Costa coffee

I’ve had the chance of a life to visit Costa Rica on a wildlife tour with family.

While there, we visited Betho (in profile here) and the coffee cooperative he is part of in the high hills of central Costa Rica. He had my son and I picking coffee (Courtney was let off as she’d spent weeks working on a coffee farm in neighbouring Nicaragua years before) and we toured the facilities, talked Fairtrade and compared notes on cooperatives in UK and Central America.

One of the coop was making a noise sweeping a new trail they have made, overseeing the valley, when told to be quiet by a howler monkey in the trees above who dropped twigs on his head until he stopped. Everyone seems to have a say!
