Stumptown Coffee Releases 'Colombia Source Trip' Short Film (VIDEO)

"Colombia Source Trip: A Short Film" is a new documentary featuring coffee farmers in their work environment. Created by Stumptown Coffee Roasters and filmaker/producer Trevor Fife, it is the latest in Stumptown's series of coffee production documentaries shot in countries around the world, such as Kenya and Ethiopia.

Within the seven minute film, one gets a glimpse into the lives of various coffee farmers. The beautifully shot doc highlights the relationship the producers have with the coffee, and how working with this product impacts their lives. The farmers stress that they love what they do; that it is this passion that helps make their coffee high quality, which in turn maintains their livelihood and that of their family.

One farmer says it best: "There is no such thing as specialty coffee, but rather, only special coffee farmers."
