Juan Gonzalez, member of the Cuna Chorti coop, shows ripe coffee cherries ready to be picked on his coffee farm. This year, instead of ripening over three months, all the coffee ripened in one month, and farmers are putting this down to climate change. This has caused a lot of problems as there isn't enough labour to pick the coffee in one month, so some coffee is being lost. The Cuna Chorti cooperative is a Fairtrade-certified coffee producer based in Chiquimula, Guatemala.
