It takes an enormous amount of water to run a successful coffee farm. But one organic farm in Guatemala is using substantially less to grow its crops.

EarthReport notes that it used to take the farm three million liters of water to produce an annual harvest. Now, it takes just 225,000 liters to produce 7,000 kilograms of coffee. That's a decrease of about 93 percent.
