Read a book on the history of Guatemala. It's crazy what global capitalism will do to secure its supply of coffee. The CIA organized THREE coups d'état there in the 20th century just to ensure they could get their coffee flowing to their workers/consumers.

Coffee, bananas, and oil. Thats the history of US involvement in central america. Guate is a lovely place, lovely people, shitty national politics.
