Description

There are extraordinary stories hidden in your cup of coffee.

"An entertaining and thought-provoking way to address how coffee consumption affects the wider world" - Caffeine Magazine

James Harper is a professional storyteller and coffee lover who travels the world to reveal the truth behind our morning coffees.

Each story is a real-life movie. We visit a stateless barista stuck on a faraway island, meet an award winning coffee grower earning just $2 profit from 250 espressos, hear from a coffee producer who is almost murdered three times during a civil war, and much more.

Today I'm sharing the story of a coffee drinker, Jools Walker, and how coffee helped her complete an inner journey.

Do you grind your beans fresh before brewing your coffee? If so, you are helping overturn a race-to–the-bottom with deep roots in colonial extraction that today is leaving millions of coffee farmers impoverished. Or, at least, that’s what many specialty coffee companies would like you to believe. The truth is a lot less rosy.In this final episode of A History of Coffee, Jonathan and James explore where the specialty coffee movement came from, whether it will succeed in arresting coffee’s race-to-the-bottom, and look into the future to understand what might be the future of coffee. A History of Coffee is a collaboration between James Harper of the Filter Stories - Coffee Documentaries podcast and Jonathan Morris, Professor of History and author of ‘Coffee: A Global History’.Visit Jonathan’s Instagram (https://bit.ly/37eMS3F) and Twitter (https://bit.ly/3jNr9ou) & James’ Filter Stories Instagram (https://bit.ly/2Mlkk0O) and Twitter (https://bit.ly/3baTsJk)Help other people find the show by leaving a review on...Apple Podcasts: http://apple.co/3jY42aJCastbox: http://bit.ly/38sXdcHRead Jonathan’s book, ‘Coffee: A Global History’ here: https://amzn.to/3dihAfUListen to the bonus episode on the ‘A History of Coffee’ podcast channel: http://bit.ly/2NArChOMusic featured in this episode:La Traviata, Brindisi (Verdi) by MIT Symphony Orchestra: https://bit.ly/3eGUsIfInfant Holy, Infant Lowly by Ann Alee: https://bit.ly/2SKlaY6
When was the last time you bought a coffee that was Fairtrade certified?Certifications make it easy for consumers to put their ethics into practice. But, hidden beneath the glossy sticker is a maze of complications and paradoxical outcomes. In this fifth episode of A History of Coffee, Jonathan and James explore where coffee certifications came from, how they tried to stop coffee’s devastating race to the bottom and assess whether they succeeded.A History of Coffee is a collaboration between James Harper of the Filter Stories - Coffee Documentaries podcast and Jonathan Morris, Professor of History and author of ‘Coffee: A Global History’.Visit Jonathan’s Instagram (https://bit.ly/37eMS3F) and Twitter (https://bit.ly/3jNr9ou) & James’ Filter Stories Instagram (https://bit.ly/2Mlkk0O) and Twitter (https://bit.ly/3baTsJk)Help other people find the show by leaving a review on...Apple Podcasts: http://apple.co/3jY42aJCastbox: http://bit.ly/38sXdcHRead Jonathan’s book, ‘Coffee: A Global History’ here: https://amzn.to/3dihAfUFuture episodes are already out on the ‘A History of Coffee’ podcast channel: http://bit.ly/2NArChO
How do you drink your instant coffee? If you’re like most of the world, you fill your mug with milk and sugar to sweeten the taste. By adding milk and sugar to your instant, you helped bring new growers - and consumers - into coffee, but arguably contributed to a crisis that left hundreds of thousands of people malnourished. In this fourth episode of A History of Coffee, Jonathan and James explore how the popularity of instant coffee dramatically alters the balance of power amongst coffee growing countries. Coffee as a global commodity takes on a life of its own, sweeping millions of farmers into a race to the bottom.A History of Coffee is a collaboration between James Harper of the Filter Stories - Coffee Documentaries podcast and Jonathan Morris, Professor of History and author of ‘Coffee: A Global History’.Visit Jonathan’s Instagram (https://bit.ly/37eMS3F) and Twitter (https://bit.ly/3jNr9ou) & James’ Filter Stories Instagram (https://bit.ly/2Mlkk0O) and Twitter (https://bit.ly/3baTsJk)Help other people find the show by leaving a review on...Apple Podcasts: http://apple.co/3jY42aJCastbox: http://bit.ly/38sXdcHRead Jonathan’s book, ‘Coffee: A Global History’ here: https://amzn.to/3dihAfUFuture episodes are already out on the ‘A History of Coffee’ podcast channel: http://bit.ly/2NArChOCoffee and brewing equipment featured in this episode1930 and 2020 “World Blend” roasted by Smiths Coffee (UK): http://bit.ly/3rtR2g1Comandante hand grinder: http://bit.ly/3qmTSCNSage electric grinder: http://bit.ly/2Zf3NyC

A History of Coffee is the story of how a tiny psychoactive seed changed the world and shapes our lives today. Across six episodes, documentary maker James Harper and professional historian Jonathan Morris narrate how humans race coffee across oceans to keep up with demand for this addictive drink. Coffee creates enormous fortunes for some, and misery for others. Sometimes the environment benefits, but more often it is plundered. If we want to make coffee a more equitable industry that’s also kinder to the environment, a place to start is understanding the stories and systems that put the coffee into your cup this morning.

Hector “tito” Vargas passed away in December 2019. We honor him by playing the season finale of the Duolingo Spanish Podcast. Correction: Tito passed away from a gunshot wound and not a heart attack.
