Around 125 million people worldwide depend on coffee for their livelihoods. One of them is Samuel, a local coffee farmer in the Kangema district in Kenya. Through his narration we gain valuable insight to Samuel’s passion for his 168 coffee trees and how it impacts his family. This is a student project in collaboration with Fairtrade Denmark. The aim of the project is to have Danish coffee drinkers experience the amount work and love that goes into every single coffee berry.
