Description

Coffee, the most important commodity on world markets after oil, has given birth to a unique café culture, fuelled by the powerful kick of the world's number one psychoactive drug, caffeine. This film charts the cherished bean from plantations in Central America, to the manic trading floor of the New York Coffee Exchange into the cafés of North America.
