Fiction vs. Reality
This is the situation while describing what is happening to my fellow farmers who sell their coffee to Starbucks.
First: Fiction. Take Starbucks, Mrs. Williams, the Costa Rica coffee elite and their Marketing might convincing the the gourmet coffee consumer all is OK down here in Costa Rica
On the other hand, however, crude reality: 800+ gourmet coffee farmers facing starvation in the world Famous Tarrazu valley of Costa Rica!
Where is all that badly needed money generated by our highland specialty coffee? It is not fair, while some obscure character gets worldwide recognition for something fabricated, we have to endure the hardships we for certain do not deserve. Nobody said the coffee trade was fair, except for Starbucks and Mrs. Williams.
