This week's "World at Work," a weekly slideshow featuring economic events from around the world through the photography of Bloomberg News, photographer Victor J. Blue looks at coffee in Guatemala.

Coffee farms in Central America may lose 25 percent of exportable production next year because of a crop disease known as leaf rust, providing a “little bit” of a boost to slumping prices, an industry group said.

The Guatemalan National Coffee Association said that rust disease, known as roya in Spanish, will destroy 15 percent of the 2012-13 harvest and as much as 40 percent of next season's harvest.
