Description

How does your choice of coffee affect civil wars, illegal immigration and climate change?

Filter Stories is a documentary podcast connecting your morning coffee to millions of hidden people.

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

"Quality production and compassionate, well-researched presentation" - Daily Coffee News

"These are untold stories, the sort you won’t find in glossy Instagram posts" - European Coffee Trip

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

Each episode takes over 100 hours to make and sheds a light on the stories of people hidden in the shadows of the coffee industry.

Stories range from a stateless barista stuck on a faraway island, to an award winning coffee grower earning just $2 profit from 250 espressos, to a coffee producer who is almost murdered three times during a civil war.

El Salvador used to grow a quarter of the world’s coffees. Today, it’s barely more than a rounding error. As coffee production fell, illegal migration to America grew.But there are many Salvadorans who want to grow coffee again and give Trump fewer reasons to build a wall.

A Eulogy for Tito

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. It's unknown at this stage whether it was suicide or murder. Visiting Panama? I recommend Oscar as your guide: http://muchogustopanama.com/
