70 min., G. 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. Viewers will witness how coffee is changing from a tool of oppression into a tool for empowerment, and how it is transforming small-scale growing communities across the world. Throughout the journey we learn how every cup of coffee we drink connects us in a very real way to the people who produce it. Film sponsored by: St. Peter Food Co-op, River Rock Coffee, St. Peter Reads, Nicollet County Historical Society and Saint Peter Community & Family Education.
