Back from Guatemala- Chajul Cooperative in Photos

Bill, Tina, Tripp and I have freshly returned from Guatemala this week.   We spent seven days traveling throughout the country visiting coffee producing cooperatives and – for Tina and I- learning about the exportation process of coffee.  Below are some beautiful pictures that Tina took during our visit to the Associacion Chajulense that is located in the Quiche department of Guatemala.  Look for more photos and blog posts to come.
