The Passionate Harvest
An historic video for the specialty coffee industry! This 60-minute video is the definitive film chronicling coffee from seed to cup.
Shot in Guatemala, Brazil, Kona and Ethiopia, The The Passionate Harvest takes a detailed look at the inner workings of the diverse processes involved in coffee production, emphasizing the enormous amount of effort and care required to produce quality coffee, and highlighting some of the issues and decision points that affect final cup quality and character.

The specialty coffee industry is in the process of creating a genuine global coffee community, in which producers and consumers come to understand their common interest in creating better coffee and a better world. By giving those who communicate directly with the consumer an intimate and technically sound look at how coffee is produced and the people who produce it, The Passionate Harvest will be a major contribution to those goals.

What a gift to coffee: to have our most important and mysterious stories about how coffee is grown and harvested told by our industry's best storytellers.

What a remarkable achievement! Whether a coffee novice or expert, The Passionate Harvest reveals specialty coffee's incredible journey from branch to brewer more accurately‚and more interestingly‚ than any other video I've seen. Bellissimo's beautifully produced video takes the viewer from the remote highlands of Ethiopia to the Cerrado of Brazil, with stops in between, accurately covering the world's coffee growing regions and processing styles. I highly recommend The Passionate Harvest to everyone interested in learning more in-depth about the people, places and practices responsible for the beverage we love.
