'An additional advantage of coffee cultivation is the temporary removal of forests. They are replaced by new trees, which, climatically, are nearly as valuable as the original ones. In ancient times only the wail of the deer felled by the tiger could be heard, or the cries of the monkey, and the bellowing of the hornbill. Today the life and industry of people and the cheers of playing children can be seen there.' (Uit Onze Koloniën p. 735)
