What do you think is more shocking: a one-dollar cup of coffee or a six-dollar cup of coffee? From the mountains of Mexico to a coffee shop in Seattle, this film takes us through the entire value chain of coffee-making and trading. The documentary features a coffee co-op founded by indigenous Tseltal producers in chiapas, Mexico with support from the Mexican province of the Jesuits. A Six Dollar Cup of Coffee reminds people what is behind the scenes in the coffee industry and the real price of the coffee that we all enjoy.
Fr. Stephen Pitts, SJ and laywoman, Christina Rossini, have been instrumental in bringing the co-op's coffee to the USA market, addressing the biggest challenge plaguing producers in the developing world: lack of large market access. Join us for a film screening followed by a Q&A session with Pitts & Rossini. Coffee will be available for purchase. RSVP: Grace@SaintAgnesSF.com
