Coffee Talk

As some of you know, I've been having a lot of trouble finding a good cup of coffee since arriving in Saipan. So, I was very happy to hear about a coffee plantation on the island! Our new friend Alan introduced us to Chuck, owner of Mariana's coffee. The girls and I took a great field trip to meet Chuck, hike through the jungle (on a nice path) and check out his coffee operation on the slopes of Mt. Tapochao.  And (YEA!) discover a great cup of coffee! Here are a few shots of Chuck, the jungle path, the coffee trees, beans ready to roast and the view on the way to Chuck's.


  1. Oh - Happy Day!! And, truly, nothing makes a day happier than a great cup-o-jo!!!

  2. When do you head back to Iowa?
