Ethiopia: Coffee documentary

Friends of Ethiopia comments on a documentary film “Black Gold” which focuses on the plight of Ethiopian coffee growers and the huge difference between what is paid to the farmers and the profits of the distributors……”The film’s effectiveness is bolstered by juxtaposed scenes of fat and happy Americans and Europeans slurping up frozen chai lattes and clucking about how big Starbuck’s is getting with scenes of children going into “therapeutic feeding centers” in the region where Starbuck’s gets its coffee because they can’t afford to by corn”.
