From the mountains of Mexico to a coffee shop in Seattle, the narrative takes us through a Mexican coffee co-ops entire value chain of coffee-making and trading to reveal how complex this highly globalized market has become.
A Six Dollar Cup of Coffee doesn’t try to provide answers or solutions, but simply reminds us of the real price of the coffee that we all so enjoy.
Fr. Stephen Pitts, S.J. & laywoman Christina Rossini have been instrumental in bringing this Mexican co-op’s coffee to the US market, addressing the biggest challenge plaguing producers in the developing world: lack of access to large markets. Join us for a film screening followed by a Q&A session with Pitts & Rossini.
Coffee will be available for purchase.
