The best coffee of the day

The best coffee of the day

I love to have a good cup of coffee in the morning, but I truly believe you have to earn this good coffee. Doing the right thing for somebody, maybe. Probably for them, the best thing is not coffee, maybe is a turn in the lane, a hand to carry something, etc. The best coffee of the day is not the one you drink, is the good thing you did to earn it that make it the best. What goes around, comes around, and coffee is included in the equation.

Smells like kid spirit

Smells like kid spirit

Since I have memory, I've been always trying to create, fix or change something. And it's funny because writing this words and trying to remember the memories of my life, I realized that never changed. I grew up and still trying to create, fix or change every day.  Across this way, I've been using different tools for that, but the inner-child is always there pushing to do something, keeping myself busy. 
Is you inner-child still alive?

The Coffee Experts

When you have been working in a coffee company for more than 10 years you can consider yourself a coffee expert?
For me, the answer is YES, of course, you are a coffee expert!. The point is, which part of the coffee have you mastered?. You can be an expert coffee seller, expert roaster, drinker, brewer, blender, picker, grower, cleaner, etc. 
I consider myself an expert coffee expert portrayer :)
What about you?

The Rainforest Country

The Rainforest Country

Ohh yeah, we are all about nature. There are many ways to feel life around you, it can be in the middle of the forest, surrounded by trees and birds. Another way can be just in the crowd city, with people and dogs. It's nice to feel something alive around and have the ability to establish a connection is even better . Take a look around you and find life. 

Nature all around

Retratos de animales en Toucan Rescue Ranch, Costa Rica - crissorama

Esta semana comenzamos un proyecto muy interesante, estamos tomando retratos de estudio de los animales de un refugio. Ellos reciben criaturas que han sido maltratadas, las cuidan hasta su recuperación y luego liberación. Algunos necesitan más tiempo para recuperarse, otros simplemente no pueden volver a su ambiente natural. Por lo que son huéspedes vitalicios del refugio. 

Nuestro principal interés surgió por la idea de trabajar fotografía de naturaleza; ¿cómo viviendo en un país tan vende y con tanta biodiversidad, un fotógrafo no trabaja fotografía de naturaleza?. Luego de una visita de trabajo social a este refugio, se nos  nos ocurrió la gran idea de trabajar con estos animales, pero en una de nuestras especialidades, el retrato.
Ahora este proyecto pretende ayudar a recaudar fondos para el refugio y que así le puedan abrir sus puertas a quienes lo necesiten 

Aquí pueden ver un poco de lo que hemos trabajado, próximamente podrán ver más.
