Perhaps you like it with milk, sugar, or simply black. Maybe you buy it at a fancy roaster or you brew it in your own kitchen. In rural Ethiopia, freshly roasted beans are beaten with a mortar and pestle and then boiled with water (pictured above). We all have our own rituals with coffee and tea, and for many of us, it is a comfort as well as a ritual. Photographer Michael Hanson (@mhansonphoto) and his brother, David Hanson (@davidhanson3), followed that comfort to its source and last week they took over @afarmedia's Instagram feed to share a peek into coffee and tea production in different countries around the world, from leaf or bean to beverage. Here is their story:
Kayo Aro, Sumatra, Indonesia
