El Cafetal, the cafetaleros's barrio. Man recollecting coffee bean from the road in front of his house, at the end of a day drying under the sun. The coffee beans usually take about three days in full sun to dry and here in "el Cafetal" people usually dry their coffee on the road. The southern part of La Guajira’s department lies between two mountain ranges, the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the Serrania de Perija. "Campesinos" here often cultivate coffee in the mountains, spending several days in their “fincas” and bringing the harvest back to town to dry it and sell it to big coffee companies. They get payed very little for this product.
