Coffee farms in central Honduras are working with half the pickers, mainly due to the migration of many of them to the United States in search of a better life. The same is also happening in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, at the other end of Central America, where the Hersaca Tres María farm suffers the same reduction of hands to pick coffee, in this case, due to the decrease of Nicaraguans arriving this season. Coffee shortages in Latin America can affect global prices.
