Last night I went to see Black Gold: Wake Up and Smell the Coffee at the Revolving Museum. I really enjoyed it. One of the interesting things was how much of the movie was about buying your coffee everyday at a shop. It struck me because I just don’t do that very often. I used to, especially when I worked in Boston and passed tons of places to buy coffee everyday but now I make my coffee at home and have a third cup at the office (not fair trade, by the way.)
I buy fair trade coffee for home and when I do go out for coffee, it is to Brew’d Awakenings where they sell fair trade so it isn’t really a huge issue for me. That’s one of the things that I appreciated most about the movie: it made me think about something I never think about because it is just a part of my life.
