T-bone harvesting coffee
This is one of our work partners, Teofilo, harvesting coffee with his wife Felipa. They sew sacks together and put them on the ground under where they are going to harvest. They make a hook in the end of a stick to pull the branches down. Then they pull the coffee off and it falls on the mat.
We call Teofilo T-bone because sometimes we speak English when we are around him and I don´t want him to hear his name thrown into the middle of a conversation in a foreign language.
