Tom's Costa Rica Harvest Trip 2010

Tom's Costa Rica Harvest Trip 2010
These photos were shot during Tom's most recent trip to Costa Rica in January 2010 - a mid-harvest visit to see the coffees we now are selling. It took a while to get them posted to the new image gallery.  I know,  I know,  Tom has taken more trips since this one,  namely two trips to Guatemala, a quick El Salvador visit, and his most recent trip to Rwanda (just back yesterday),  but we thought that since they are such great images, we would bring them to your attention. A few contenders for the 2011 Dogs of Coffee Calendar (?!?).  Take a look  at the entire trip here.
