Arenal coffee farm photos I took near the Arenal volcano in north central Costa Rica show the simplicity and majesty of the country’s landscape. One can spend days just sitting and watching the clouds roll past the peak of the mountain while enjoying a nice cup of coffee. Such experiences remind us to pause our busy minds for a moment and notice the natural wonders that were there before we were born and will continue to be there long after we leave this earth.
Living in New York City or any other urban environment, people don’t always think about where their coffee comes from. Even when you look at these pictures, you may not notice the coffee plants growing for miles into the distance. From seedling to plant to bean, the process of creating this product that so many people consume is a livelihood and culture of its own. Every cup of coffee you taste in Costa Rica is tied to the region where the beans are grown, which makes each one unique and rich with history.
