Love Coffee?

Contributed by Pooja Shah on 02/14/11 

Well, join us this Wednesday for our first event about coffee workers in Ethiopia and the influence our love of cheap coffee has on their lives.

'Black Gold' Screening
February 16th in CNS 112 at 6:30pm

"After oil, coffee is the most actively traded commodity in the world with $80 billion in retail sales. But for every $3 cup of coffee, a coffee farmer receives only 3 cents. Most of the money goes to the middlemen, especially the four giant conglomerates which control the coffee market. Tracing the path of the coffee consumed each day to the farmers who produce the beans, Black Gold asks us to 'wake up and smell the coffee', to face the unjust conditions under which our favorite drink is produced and to decide what we can do about it."

Discussion with free trade coffee to follow!
