Coffee Time in Tanzania

The ladies in this picture have gathered the dried coffee beans from the drying and sorting boxes and now the beans are ready to be shipped and roasted. Of course, I had to have a cup first! No modern means of production in sight~just a lot of hard back-breaking work for hours at a time.

Coffee doesn't get any fresher than this but you're right. Back breaking work. Makes us really appreciate our coffee doesn't it?
