Picking coffee

Workers (and growers) are paid by the weight of coffee beans that are picked.

Between 4:00 and 5:30 pm the coffee has to be taken to the processing plant and weighed. In the plantation the tractor will take the coffee you pick most of the way.

If it's your coffee, you might be walking an hour or more, carrying the coffee on your back, to get to a road where you can find a buyer
