Summary

A Cafecito Storyis a story of love coffee birds and hope. It is a beautifully written eco-fable by best-selling author Julia Alvarez. Based on her and her husband's experiences trying to reclaim a small coffee farm in her native Dominican RepublicA Cafecito Storyshows how the return to the traditional methods of shade-grown coffee can rehabilitate and rejuvenate the landscape and human culture while at the same time preserving vital winter habitat for threatened songbirds. Not a political or environmental polemicA Cafecito Storyis instead a poetic modern fable about human beings at their best. The challenge of producing coffee is a remarkable test of our ability to live more sustainably caring for the land growers and consumers in an enlightened and just way. Written with Julia Alvarez's deft touch this is a story that stimulates while it comforts waking the mind and warming the soul like the first cup of morning coffee. Indeed this story is best read with a strong cup of organic shade-grown fresh-brewed coffee.
