Happy National Coffee Day!
Bravotv.com celebrated the holiday by highlighting the 8 Best Places in the World to Travel If You Love Coffee.
Among them was Costa Rica. Many Rustic Pathways Costa Rica alumni met Matias Zeledon, owner of Down to Earth Coffee in La Fortuna. Matias, who harvests and roasts his own coffee, has partnered with Rustic Pathways for more than a decade, allowing students to participate in a coffee demonstration and delicious tastings during their program.
Bravo also features Tanzania, where Rustic Country Director Patrick Ziemnik shares his expertise about fair trade coffee.
