In this Huehuetenango region of Guatemala farmers rely on their coffee harvest to provide for their families over the entire year. The use of bees in coffee growing has been a crucial step in helping the buds set and allows for the coffee tree to blossom. Each blossom represents a coffee cherry, unique and beautiful, and also vital for the coffee farmer. These farmers position their hives within the coffee plantations allowing the bees constant access to the coffee blossom nectar.
