Coffee with a Conscience: Akat Café Kalli and the Sin Fronteras Coffee Project
Come learn about the partnership created between Oaklanders Jose and Rocio Rodriguez Cervantes, owners of Akat Café Kalli and a Zapatista Coffee Cooperative from Chiapas.
They will discuss their visit to a Zapatista community where they learned about the production process of coffee and how it relates to the caring of the land and to the working conditions of the people who grow and harvest the beans.
There will also be samples of the coffee to taste!
