This will make you think about where your next cup of coffee comes from. Coffee afficionado's will really appreciate this film. You can see barrista contestants, farmers in Ethiopia, coffee market in Addis Abbaba, coffee bean examination by marketers/buyers, coffee bean separation in Ethiopia, etc, etc. The DVD jammed up towards the end, but it didn't affect the benefit of watching all the preceding.
