FOOD & FARM FILM FEST: COFFEE & CHOCOLATE
April 06 only
Sunday, April 6 at 7pm
What better way to end our festival than a coffee & chocolate dessert? Three delicious films:
Nothing Like Chocolate
(Kum-Kum Bavnani, 2013, 60 minutes) An incredible journey into the world of eccentric chocolate visionary Mott Greene, the founder of the Grenada Chocolate company. The first “tree to bar” chocolate company making chocolate in the country where it is grown, Mott’s devotion to the environment also led to the invention of a solar-drying ship to export the chocolate. Tragically, Mott passed away in 2013, but his chocolate lives on; recently, Grenada Chocolate was named one of the most influential candy bars of all time by Time Magazine.
The Way Back to Yarasquin
(Sarah Gerber, 2013, 20 minutes) This film explores the coffee economy from Honduras to San Francisco, following Mayra Orellana as she organizes a coffee cooperative in her small town in Honduras, while working with roasters from Ritual, Blue Bottle, and other San Francisco favorites to connect consumers, roasters, and farmers.
(Desmond Loh, 2013, 9 minutes) A mini-documentary telling the heartwarming story of Professor Yoshi Masuda and his effort to bring coffee and community to the tsunami and earthquake stricken areas of east Japan.
Served with: Coffee and chocolate, of course!
Join us after the final screening for a closing reception at Dandelion Chocolate featuring local coffee and chocolate makers (make sure you choose the ticket that includes the after party on EventBrite).
