Documentary film “It’s Bean Too Hot” is now online! During the official premiere of the film on September 7th, Czech filmmaker, Hedvika Michnová, took us to coffee-producing communities in Tanzania and Costa Rica to meet smallholder families who are striving to keep coffee farming alive. “It’s Bean Too Hot”, tells the story of coffee heroes – smallholder farmers who are fighting climate change every day to save their livelihoods and your daily cup of coffee.

Following the premiere, we met up with Hedvika and c&c program manager, Stefan Ruge, for a live Meet & Greet Event hosted by Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung (HRNS) to discuss the film and importances of addressing the current climate crisis faced by smallholder farming families worldwide.
