A view from Volcan Mombacho of the Isletas

The view from Volcano Mombacho looking towards Lake Nicaragua, the Asese Peninsula and the Isletas where I have enjoyed spending  time surrounded by the jungle and the howling monkeys. On a tour of Cafe Las Flores halfway up Volcano Mombacho , I met the Red-eyed Tree Frog.

I learned about the coffee farming process, how beans are grown and harvested. The image below shows freshly picked coffee, dried coffee beans, roasted, and ground. The next image shows the final process before roasting, Quality Control.
