Fiesta Bendicion de la Tierra y el Café - this is an event that takes place once a year in San Marcos de Tarrazu where coffee producers parade in front of the church to receive blessings. This time, they had the distinguished presence of Nicaraguan Cardinal Miguel Obando y Bravo. Once the holly water is thrown over the passing cars, the producers will take with them the blessed items (seeds, soil, coffee plants...) to use in their plantations..Photo: Eduardo Martino / 11.01.2009
