Java Journey

Chris Kenning of the The Louisville Courier-Journal wrote the perfect story Sunday to read while sipping a cup of Joe. For "The Coffee Connection," Kenning traveled to the Guatemalan mountains to trace the journey of fair trade coffee from tiny beans grown on the trees of Mayan farmers such as Pascual Perechu to your neighborhood coffee shop. I like how Kenning explains the economics of the coffee industry through the stories of farmers and traders. The story comes with a nice Flash gallery of photos by Geoff Oliver Bugbee that show the trip from coffee tree to coffee cup.
