Low coffee prices threaten farmers

Marcos Rivas picks ripe red coffee beans at a plantation in Atenas, 28 miles (35kms) west of San Jose December 17, 2008. Costa Rica's coffee farmers need international coffee prices, which have fallen because of the global financial crisis, to rise or else they face stiff losses this harvest.

I never realized the impact of the mess we are dealing with here. I love Costa Rican Coffee and I am not a coffee drinker.
I wished I had brought more back. I gave away a lot of it for gifts.
Ciao
