Arabica - Word Book
Arabica looks at the international coffee market, and shows how developing countries are simply pawns in the money games played by major industrial powers. Although we are encouraged to be more conscientious consumers, we still buy basic commodities at the supermarket, with little thought for the fact that the people growing and picking coffee are paid virtually nothing. How can it be that just about everyone else - coffee merchants, companies and speculators - profits from the enterprise? Encompassing a wide variety of musical styles, Arabica brings us a powerful message that demands urgent attention.
