Event Series #2 - Black Gold Documentary & Discussion


Purpose of this Event

Would you like to learn more about the story behind coffee with a group of coffee lovers from diverse backgrounds?

Join us to watch the award-winning documentary "Black Gold" to follow an Ethiopian coffee farmer's epic journey around the world for a fair share of his super quality coffee. We'll enjoy coffee prepared by Virginia, Chairman of Hong Kong Coffee Culture Exchange Association. Then hold a discussion about what this means for the coffee industry and consumers in Hong Kong.
 


BLACK GOLD - Documentary 
Producer: Marc Francis, Nick Francis (Speakit Films)
Cast: Tadesse Meskela, Oromia Coffee Farmers Co-operative Union
Year: 2006
Duration: 74 mins
Language: English

Multinational coffee companies rule our shopping malls and supermarkets and dominate an industry worth over $80 billion. This makes coffee the most traded commodity in the world after oil. But while we continue to pay for our lattes and cappuccinos, the price paid to coffee farmers remains so low that many have been forced to abandon their coffee fields. Nowhere is this paradox more evident than in Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee. Black Gold is a documentary shown at the London film festival which takes you to the coffee fields in Ethiopia, to the commodity exchanges, and to the fashionable cafes in New York and London. It will wake you up and make you examine what you are really drinking.



















Target Participants

20-30 people including consumers, coffee roasters, retailers, marketeers, baristas, trainers, NGOs, Cafe owners & operators, media.
