There are some really tough jobs out there, coffee bean picking being one of them, and so the bucket dubbed Coco by Gabriela Ravassa hopes to alleviate some of that back-breaking work. It is basically an ergonomically designed carrier that straps around the worker's back, creating support while also absorbing any physical discomfort.

Coco by Gabriela Ravassa does maintain the traditional shape of the containers used to date. That is to ensure that the workers can still use the same tools. Yet, radical changes have occurred to the bottom of the bucket as well as the belt. The bottom has been angled so as to minimize bruising on legs while the belt features girdle-like elastic bands for comfort and convenience.
