George's photographer friend, Olaf Hammelburg, spent two years in Peru working on this extraordinary story tracing the route taken by a small lot of coffee that has been; picked, washed, dried and then blessed by a shaman high in the isolated green world of the Peruvian Andes before it is transported by donkeys over suspended bridges, on rafts over a river, on a truck over a rock-strewn mountain pass and beyond in photograph after breathtaking photograph all the way to the port of Lima, a transatlantic ship and then to cafes in Europe and the US.
The narration is told entirely by Olaf's nearly fifty dramatic photos of magical places and of people with faces that have been unforgettably carved by their experiences in a world that is quickly vanishing but beautifully captured by Olaf's singing camera.
The book is interspersed with short articles by three of the farmers, a director of a Peruvian coffee cooperative, by Olaf Hammelburg, Ken Davids, well known for his numerous books on coffee and for his website Coffee Review, and by George.
Amazingly, before George ever knew Olaf or his work, he bought part of the very lot Olaf traces from Peru to the US! It was during the first year of Terroir Coffee's existence.
