Due to unusual weather in 2018 (see below the news of flowering), the harvest was long (almost 3 months), but less abundant, especially for the new Obata variety whose growth is slower than planned.
The harvest was further complicated by the fact that I blocked my back on December 17 and, after 3 weeks of almost total immobility, I am in a slow recovery phase. I had to give the instructions from my bed and count on Viviane to go get the coffee sacks with the pick-up, help the employees for humidity measurements, pay them etc. She therefore deserves to appear with our employees and pickers in the photo below. The team is not complete because, given the circumstances, the end of harvest aperitif was improvised at the last minute.
As I have not been able to go to the plantations for more than a month, this will be the only illustration of this message. More info when I can go back to the coffee trees.
