It has been a while since I checked in, so this might be a long one! I've been pretty busy since my last post with lots of sampling for my two bromeliad species, both in the forest and in the pasture. However, on the weekend of the 14th and 15th of April, I was able to spend a bit of time exploring the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, where I found a number of Werauhia tonduziana and worked in a very beautiful pasture. I was also able to do something I have been wanting to do during my time in Monteverde, which was to go on a coffee tour. Actually, the tour I went on at Don Juan coffee tours was a coffee, chocolate, and sugar cane tour. The vast majority of the tour was devoted to coffee, in which I learned so much, including that light roast is a far superior roasting type for coffee because medium and dark roast is basically burning the coffee beans. Maybe some of you take umbrage with this, but having tried all three types, I think I am doomed to forever search out light roast coffee. Below are some photos from collecting in a pasture and my coffee tour.
