NPR recently ran a story titled “Journey of a Specialty Coffee Bean, From Cherry to Cup” which beautifully told the story of how specialty coffee beans are grown in the volcanic Guatemalan mountains 5,000 feet above sea level for your enjoyment in a specialty brewed coffee cup. As they say, “altitude is key.” Watch this story to see the back breaking work- from families coming together to handpick each bright red cherry to how the bean ends up at your favorite local roaster and ultimately in your favorite cup of Joe.

 

There’s also a cool coffee quiz to learn more above coffee:
