120. This is what innovation looks like

2011-01-19 Comments Off on 120. This is what innovation looks like

A few weeks ago I described how we are working to reduce the risk to smallholder farmers innovating in the name of quality.  Yesterday, I was finally able to visit the field here in Nicaragua and see the pilot project for processing pulp natural coffee (alternatively called semi-washed and honey coffee).  Today, some images that show what innovation looks like in the community of Las Sabanas.

N.B.: The pulp natural pilot project with the 5 de junio cooperative is made possible by a grant from the Chuck and Ellen Haas Foundation, and complements a broader range of activities undertaken in partnership with 5 de junio under the CAFE Livelihoods project.
