Coffee beans in this village are collected in those huge white sacks lined up. They are then put through this grinder and left out to dry. It's a complex and tedious process. It is a lot of hard work for the local farmers to prepare the beans for selling and shipment.
After the coffee beans are ground up, large tarps are laid out in front of people's houses. The beans are swept and spread out evenly for drying. The beans can be outside for a few days at a time.
My friend Paijo's home in Jember, Java, Indonesia. The coffee beans from above are nearby to these homes. This is the home of his family. I spent Eid, the feast at the end of Ramadan here one year. There was so much food, love and laughter. I was treated like family and have an open invitation to return.
