Greetings from GUATEMALA! Today we visited coffee farms Candelaria and El Pajal, where we discussed various methods of coffee plant management, one of which you can see in the bottom left picture. This is an example of “stumping”, where the coffee plant is cut below the existing branches, in order to allow the plant to sprout new branches and focus its energy on producing new buds and fruit! Learning! #BiP2025 #ritualcoffeeroasters #guatemala
