Photographer's Note

The island of Tanna in Vanuatu is ideal for the grwoing of coffee. The active Mt Yasur volcano provides natural fertilisation from frequent sprinklings of volcanic ash, the climate, although tropical, is pleasant, influeneced by the Pacific ocean. Coffee growing families like this one in Middle Bush, can grow the coffee beans along with their other cash crops and are paid cash on what they produce. Here the beans are sun-dried before being taken to the factory on the coast near Lenakel, main town on the island of Tanna. Coffee produced, although in small quantites, is good & has an increasing following in Australia, New Zealand, parts of the US and also in Japan.
