Here's a stunning video about La Prosperidad de Chirinos, a cooperative of coffee farmers and enthusiasts in the province of San Ignacio, Peru. Founded in 1968, the collective now has 705 members, 152 of which are women. Together the farmers — many of whom have been working with coffee since they were children — grow the shiny red coffee fruit on lush tracts of Peruvian land. The video — set to catchy music — follows members of the collectives as they explain their various roles from farming to marketing. It also demonstrates the different steps and challenges of the coffee making process. Go, watch.
