Project Direct Nicaragua is on deck
It’s the very end of the picking season here in Nicaragua and most of the plants have been stripped of their fruit. However, this morning when Paul Thornton, Chris Wade and I drove through the mist at Finca El Quetzel, we came upon a group of pickers who were working a slope of red and yellow catuai in small pocket of the farm. We rounded a bend in the road and thought we heard singing. When we looked up, we spotted about 100 workers dotting the hillside. A bull horn sounded, and we had a rare opportunity to join as the workers filed downhill to unload their bounty before they stopped for a mid-morning break. We enjoyed spending time with the hard-working people who are picking the coffee that we hope to enjoy in the next month as our second Project Direct shipment.
