A worker carries a sack of freshly harvested coffee beans at the Santa Adelaida coffee co-operative in La Libertad, on the outskirts of San Salvador, El Salvador.

Once a family-owned coffee plantation split under a 1980 land reform, the Santa Adelaida coffee is now a co-operative dedicated to the production of organically-grown high ground coffee, which is certified by non-governmental organisation Rainforest Alliance, and exported to Germany, the United States, Britain and Japan. The coffee plantation is currently run by a co-operative of over 150 members.
