An eye-opening exposé of the multi-billion dollar global coffee industry?

Black Gold – A film about coffee and trade

Multinational coffee companies  dominate the industry worth over $80 billion, making coffee the most valuable trading 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.

As westerners revel in those designer lattes, impoverished Ethiopian coffee growers suffer the bitter taste of injustice.


In their eye-opening expose of the multi-billion dollar coffee industry, filmmaking brothers Nick and Marc Francis trace one man’s fight for fair trade.
