Colectadores at Finca Santa Rosa

Finca Santa Rosa in Teocelo, Veracruz, Mexico, where collectors move from grove to grove to gather fresh coffee cherries from varieties of trees such as Mundo Novo, Bourbon, and Caturra. A spate of the fungus called Roya has damaged thousands of trees and threatened the livelihoods of many who work in the coffee industry. Many farmers in Mexico are experimenting with planting different varietals of coffee to find those most resistant to the leaf rust disease.
