Connected by Coffee
Connected By Coffee is an inspiring and thought-provoking documentary about the lives and history of the people who grow the coffee we drink.
The film follows two North American coffee roasters on a 1,000-mile journey across Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua to listen to the stories of the people who grow their coffee. On the way they meet with soldiers who have become growers, powerful women who are controlling their own destinies and countless small-scale farmers joining together to form cooperatives.
This film serves as a starting point to educate coffee drinkers about the basics of fair trade, cooperatives, social justice, shade grown/organic, the conflict in fair trade, coffee rust – AND invites the viewer to not only make conscious purchasing decisions, but to learn more, get involved, and take action.
