café togolaise...

Togo produces a lot of coffee. My discovery of this fact has added new joy to my mornings. Suddenly I have become a coffee enthusiast for the first time in my life. Fresh coffee, locally grown and roasted, makes me eager for the next dawn.

So everywhere I go I have been asking around, trying to learn more, lots of questions about the coffee business in Togo. The landowner shown here has kindly offered to show me his plantation.
