If you are an urban dweller like me, you don’t really think about how the food we purchase at the super market is grown. On my recent trip to Guatemala I saw a pomegranate tree (I thought they grew on bushes);
a mango tree (never knew they grew like coconuts bunched at the top of the tree)
and of course a coffee tree. I was told that coffee beans are considered fruit (who knew). Some of the finest coffee we drink in the US is grown in Guatemala. The red beans darken a bit, are hand-picked, dried in the sun and then sent for processing.
I learn more about the food I take for granted each time I visit this beautiful country.
