Bringing together Global Health, Environmental Studies and Human Ecology departments as well as social justice and food systems student organizations, Brause hopes to foster a conversation around coffee in Ethiopia and global trade and fair trade standards around the world. Following the film local Madison coffee roasters will be available for a short discussion and Q&A. There will also be an opportunity to hear voices from Ethiopia.
