Or maybe I should say: swanning around while other people pick coffee?

Look Tilly, the magic of nature, coffee beans growing inside coffee cherries.

Dad's mates a.k.a fabulous ring-in coffee harvesters!

Child labour. Rotten, I know.

Yep, that's my Dad dancing. Or doing some kind of heel-toe coffee jig. 

Don't ask me, I'm only related to him.

I tell ya though, the man grows wonderful coffee.

Hand picked, hand processed, hand roasted. 

That's some good bean.

Oh my goodness! How cool is this?! Local coffee here in California is practically unheard of – I think I’m a wee bit jealous.

Oh wow. This is pretty cool. I had no idea coffee grew in cherries. Does he sell it or is recreational use only?

As a Seattle-ite (the mecca of coffee drinkers), I’m very jealous.

That looks like a lot fun. We celebrate family harvests, but nothing like that. And as an avid coffee drinker, I’m envious of the opportunity to grow and roast my own coffee.
