An important movie for any coffee-, tea- or cocoa-drinker
21 January 2007 | by ferraramaSee all my reviews

Agreeing with everything RKeller87 said, this movie shows both the mundane back-story of how coffee gets from the field to your cup but the heart-wrenching story of the growers who are between a rock and a hard place when selling their crops for less than they need to live on. And PLEASE don't say "Why don't they do something else for a living, or raise something else?" Their options are not as varied as yours are, my brother or sister, and when they do raise something else, it is not necessarily better for them in the long run. The Fair Trade movement is part of the solution to this problem, and I hope everyone who sees this film starts asking for and buying their own fair-trade coffee, tea, chocolate, and cocoa.
