The Life of Coffee Pickers
Poor and Indigenous
In order to understand power and wealth distribution in Central America, we must look to the coffee industry. Specifically, we should first identify who profits and who doesn’t. Who are the coffee pickers, and what is their history?
A Day In The Life
The day begins at the break of dawn, usually around 5:00 am, but sometimes earlier. If the family is lucky enough to have a shower pit, they take a cold shower with buckets of water.
At The Heart of What We Do
Elba travels to Central American countries to find out how the coffee pickers are living, and to use some of the profits from her business to help people in small, but tangible ways.
