The coffee has been picked

The coffee beans have just been pulled from the bushes by the workers. They each got their bags weighed and are paid according to how much weight they picked that day. It usually comes to about $10 American dollars per day for each worker. This rate is common throughout Colombia, but changes on a regular basis depending on how much the coffee can be sold for. I'm told that the "hipster" coffee culture is very good for their business because the "hipsters" love quality coffee and are willing to pay fairly for it.
