"A 40-minute detour off the main road through Comayagua takes you to the community of Las Botijas, home to around 600 inhabitants. While the community has been established for more than 150 years, they started cultivating coffee around eight years ago, as temperatures in the higher altitude areas rose and became more accommodating of Arabica production. A climate shift is also evident in a recent Pine Beetle infestation that ravaged the forests in the area. Producers are working to reforest their lands, replanting cedar as well as mahogany trees."
