Caption: Coffee season here in Nicaragua is wonderful. These berries fell to the ground because we’ve had more rain than usual, whatever “usual” looks like in climate chaos. ☕️
The berries then go through the outer skin removal and drying. Outside of Matagalpa where it’s a bit drier climate there are fields of coffee drying happening now. The roads have trucks full of bags of coffee beans going to dry. 🐝
We were out at a coffee finca with a special rainforest certificate where the most incredible melipona apiary (native bees) is booming.
🍌
After going over a washed out road, through several creeks, we bounced our way up a muddy, rocky road. Under a tall rainforest canopy with a sub canopy of banana, and coffee bushes as far as you could see in every direction, we came upon the meliponary with several roofs covering shelves of hives. 🐝
More photos and videos from the hive to come. Watch this space…
