  • A Film About Coffee 

    "A Film About Coffee" is a love letter to, and meditation on, specialty coffee. It examines what it takes, and what it means, for coffee to be defined as "specialty." The film whisks audiences on a trip around the world, from farms in Honduras and Rwanda to coffee shops in Tokyo, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and New York….This is a film that bridges gaps both intellectual and geographical, evoking flavor and pleasure, and providing both as well.” –A Film About Coffee

  • Black Gold

    “Black Gold offers a penetrating look into the unbalanced struggling between poor coffee farmers in Ethiopia and greedy multinational coffee companies to do fair trade.” –Anonymous Review 

  • Connected by Coffee 

    “Connected By Coffee tells the story of Latin American coffee farmers and how our daily brew is deeply connected to a troubled past and hopeful future. Following a 1000-mile journey from Mexico to Nicaragua, the film will show how equitable trading relationships are empowering communities and bringing social justice.” —Connected By Coffee
