This week we continued to work in the Lima office, researching the coffee industry and learning from TechnoServe staff and specialists about practices in
production, quality and sustainability. We had a particular focus in further identifying key analysis and data to verify our hypothesis, writing interview
guides for groups of stakeholders, and starting to reach out to industry players and experts in the coffee industry and schedule interviews.
Over the weekend we had a chance to visit downtown Lima and toured one of the oldest Catholic monasteries in Peru, plus the catacombs, which are ancient
burial grounds. On Saturday we attended a buffet dinner showcasing traditional dance and music. We also encountered a celebration on the main square of
Lima on Sunday celebrating the day of the children. Lima is a very socially conscious city with lots to see and do.
