Un café por favor

At nightfall we stumbled into this coffee plantation after many hours of climbing the Mogote mountain. The owner, an old Dominican and his daughter welcomed us with an excellent cup of coffee.
A group of Haitian immigrants took care of the heavy work. There is about a million Haitians in Dominican Republic looking for a better life compared to what they have in their extremely poor home country. There is tension between Dominicans and Haitians. Xenophobia and mistreatment are not uncommon. Luckily we didn´t notice any sign of bad atmosphere at this “cafetal”
