Coffee, also known as “black gold”, is a business that generates billions of dollars a year in revenue. Much of this coffee crop is grown in developing countries – farmers are often paid a pittance for their beans and the amount of water needed to grow this crop (approximately 37 gallons per one cup of coffee) is an amount that many arid nations can scarcely afford for this crop on which their economy depends.

Where did Phil’s coffee actually come from?
Coffee is grown in over 50 countries worldwide. Of those 50+, we have footage from one – a plantation in Chiapas, Mexico. We then took our cameras to Lamill Roastery in Alhambra, CA to film the roasting process. Café Hon gets their beans from a local roaster, Zeke’s Coffee, who in turn makes the Beehive Blend for the café with beans from Guatemala and Ethiopia.
Our coffee growing footage is from stock footage filmed in Chiapas, Mexico. The point on the map is a coffee producing organization in Chiapas – our stock footage might have very well come from one of their farms. We filmed the roasting process at Lamill Coffee Roastery in Alhambra, CA.
