Alternate title:Cappuccino trail : the global economy in a cup
Summary:By following the trail of two coffee beans grown in the Peruvian Andes, this program looks at the stimulant, which, after oil, is the most globally traded commodity. One of the beans takes the route of the open market where its price is determined by commodities traders and analysts. The other bean finds its way into a gourmet coffee made by a company dedicated to paying fair prices to farmers for their high-quality organic crop. Originally broadcast in Aug. 2001 as part of the series Tales from the global economy.
