A short except:
Angel Molina is fighting to save his way of life. In the hills of Sierra de=
 Montecillos in Honduras, his 15 hectare coffee plantation has been hit by =
a virulent coffee plant fungus, known as la roya, or leaf rust, with devast=
ating effects.
Mr Molina has been dealing with la roya by the most effective means: uproot=
ing the bushes and planting new ones that will not yield coffee beans for a=
t least three years. He is not alone. According to the Inter-American Devel=
opment Bank, the Central American region is suffering the “severest outbr=
eak” of the past 30 years.
