Cuppa Joe, Anyone?

Taken in a place with no name (See more photos here)

You may have to wait awhile. These coffee beans need to ripen, which can take from 5 to 7 months, then be picked, processed and dried. Finally the beans are roasted, ground and brewed.

Lots of work for a measly cuppa joe.

    Beatiful photo, Barbara! Very nice DOF throughout and a great composition. That lone red berry in the back really draws your eye right in!

    I don’t think I can wait that long for coffee, but the pix has motivated me to brew some of their cousins for my morning brew. :). P.S. Where’s the snow?

    I’ve always wondered about that first person to make a cup of coffee. Look at the process — pick ripe beans, roast them, grind them, and then brew. Who would look at those beans and think to do all that??

    Someone with a great imagination, maybe. 🙂

    Lovely shot, Barbara. The colors are wonderful.

    Beautiful shot! Now I’ll think of that every morning with my daily cup!

    Great picture, it may be a lot of work but it is worth it. I have a coffee tree growing in my house. I hope to have cherries on it someday but it may take 3 years.

    that picture is almost as beautiful as a cup of coffee itself 😛 theres a lot of interest in this photo and you have chosen to compose the elements wonderfully!

    I didn’t know coffee beans were so red.

    The shot is tasty, even if the object wouldn’t be.
