Chiapas, Mexico (Photo © Janet Jarman 2013) - A family from Colombo, Guatemala, sorts through hundreds of coffee cherries separating the unripe green cherries that will undergo different processing into lower quality coffee. The mother (right) complained about abuses on the farm where they previously worked. She said the farm’s supervisor refused to provide medical assistance when one of her children fell gravely ill and refused to pay them for the labor they provided. Afraid of having to return to Guatemala, they escaped one night walking until they found work with better conditions on this large farm managed by a fellow Guatemalan.
