Just the journey they go on to get to the place where the coffee is grown is so remote and grueling I can’t image then having to grow and process coffee….these films to me were a real eye opener. I drink a pot of coffee daily without a thought as to where it comes from…sure I know my coffee is from Sumatra and have some idea of what conditions are like in Indonesia for coffee farmers….but to see the reality of these Peruvian coffee farmers is a real eye opener. Mostly, though, it’s the commitment to the environment not only shown by the farmers but also by the folks at Equal Exchange who make it their business to go to the end of the world to visit, support and speak with people, like these farmers . Amazing simply amazing.
