This morning our friend Laura brought us up into the hills of Mayaguez to about 1000 feet elevation to where her neighbor owns a coffee farm, Mis Abuelos. It didn't take that long to drive up there, maybe 20 minutes. We had a lovely visit and a beautiful view looking across the mountains towards the ocean. We had a casual look around and saw them grinding coffee that was destined to the grocery stores along the west coast of Puerto Rico. We left with three bags of coffee beans to try out.
