Coffee Comes Alive: How Can Your Purchases Make a Difference?
This documentary, set in the mountains of southern Mexico, examines the lives of coffee producers and how a consumer's coffee choices can make a difference. This film contrasts the practices of conventional versus fair trade coffee production. It explores the success of one Mexican Fair Trade Coffee Co-op (UCIRI) and the potential of others, illustrating how fair trade purchasing can empower and improve the lives of third world producers living in poverty.
