The definitive scoop on the coffee trade.
**AVAILABLE ONLY IN THE UNITED STATES**

Traveling with the filmmaker from Guatemala to South Carolina to New York City and seeing each phase of coffee production unfold—the growing, picking, processing, distribution, brewing and selling—one comes to understand that most products we use have passed through the hands, and lives, of countless people in numerous countries.
