21. Photos: The hands behind your coffee

On my recent visit to Olopa here in Guatemala, I had the pleasure of spending some time with two fantastic people — Don Bernardino and Doña Francisca.  During our visit, Don Bernardino was very expressive in conversation, using his hands to emphasize a point, demonstrate the physical quality of his coffee, dig into his worm compost pile, etc.  I became fascinated with his expressive hands and began taking pictures of them as he talked.  Here are some images of the hard-working hands that labor over the specialty coffee we love.
