Storyline

The story of one woman's journey of reconnecting with her Honduran origins and her unfaltering determination to empower her rural community through the main local commodity: coffee. Mayra Orellana-Powell recognizes the need to break the cycle of vicious, predatory loans against farmers and raise the community to economic sustainability, and ultimately to truly thriving. Against all odds, she creates a thriving local-led farmers group to import high-quality, award-winning specialty coffee to the US, resulting in double and triple profits for farmers, growing sense of pride, and increasing empowerment among people who should be recognized for the hard work they put in to bring us a delicious cup of coffee.This story displays the power of individuals in action and the potential for greater responsibility by consumers.
