Ricky Lopez, the famous Guatemalan photographer, recently visited De la Gente. His latest project is a book featuring the restaurants and foods of Antigua, and he plans to include De la Gente. We are very excited about this opportunity to showcase our coffee alongside all of the other delicious foods from Antigua. De la Gente coffee is some of the best coffee in the world, and all of the profits go directly to the farmers. Great Coffee. Changing Lives!
We spent a few hours with Ricky and his team yesterday traversing through the coffee fields and at the roastery in San Miguel Escobar. Two of the farmers from the San Miguel cooperative, Manuel and Gabriel, were participants in the photo shoot, posing while working with the coffee plants, riding a pulpero and roasting some coffee.
We look forward to seeing the final book and will let all of you know when it's available and how to get copies for yourselves.
Ricky is a commercial and documentary photographer and videographer. He is best known for his photography books documenting the beauty of Guatemala. Some of his books include Guatemala Visions of Grandeur, John Paul II in Guatemala, Mayan Spirit and more. He plans on shooting videos to support his current project.
