Operation Groundswell’s “Brewing Justice” program goes deep inside the original Banana Republic where a seemingly fertile land conceals bitter fruit. From the bustling markets of Guatemala’s big cities to the smallholder farms of the western highlands, we’ll explore places where land and livelihoods collide with identity and examine why coffee and malnutrition often grow side-by-side. We’ll meet with producers in their fields, talk shop with fair trade retailers and get our hands dirty learning service alongside local movers and shakers. We’ll follow a coffee bean from seed to shelf and learn how Guatemalan coffee growers are challenging the inequities of a global marketplace.
