Coffee Bean Drying

Continuing my series on coffee, this is the next step where the coffee beans (which have already been extracted from the fruit) are dried. In this Papuan village, the beans are often dried inside this building so they don't have to worry about rain. The beans are raked periodically to help with the drying process and prevent them from molding in the humidity.
