Coffee Talks

Original title Die Welt muss auch mal zusammenwachsen


Can there be fair trade between Europe and Africa, and if so, under what conditions? This film follows the Bremen-based coffee company Utamtsi to the lush mountains of Cameroon where they buy their beans. It explores the relationships between the producers and the consumers as well as the two Utamtsi founders – one from Germany, the other from Cameroon.
