[360 ° video]: Producing organic coffee and cocoa in Peru
You are inside the Urubamba Cooperative coffee and cocoa processing plant in the Southern Peru town of Quillabamba. Coffee and cocoa produced by small land owners is brought here to be processed or stocked. Here you can see how the cocoa beans are selected depending on their size. The bigger beans are more expensive. The cooperative buys and sells two cocoa varieties, "Chuncho", the local variety, and hybrid. Hybrid is good for quantity, but if you’re looking for quality you want Chuncho. These plants grow higher and they’re more difficult to harvest but they produce a wider variety of aromas, and more fat, perfect for chocolate production. Peru ranks 8th among the main world cocoa producing countries. Around 15–25% of its coffee producers belong to cooperative organizations linked with international Fair Trade networks.
Protests on the streets of Charlotte, in 360
Following two nights of protests, marchers gathered outside the Omni Hotel where a man had been shot the previous night. They took to the streets of Charlotte and also gathered at the police station asking for the tapes to be released. Most of the evening was peaceful as the group protested through the Uptown area and past Bank of America stadium. As the recently instituted curfew drew near, protesters made their way to I-277 where they finally clashed with police. Even though traffic had already been stopped, officers in riot gear moved the protestors off the highway.
