Posted late this week. Had a nice trip to Los Angeles, and some visits with coffee roasting friends. That part was swell, the traffic, not so much.

La Oroya lies high in the Andes, and it’s one of the towns that we pass on the way to the coffee farms. It’s a mining area for various minerals, and has recently been the site of many protests over mine pollution and strikes have blocked the Central Highway several times.

Here’s a look back:
