In March of 2020, the Cinefood team traveled to Nicaragua at the behest of our client, Altromercato. They wanted to produce a short documentary film about the coffee supply chain. Little did we know that we’d be embarking on one of the best experiences of our careers.
Nicaragua is not what you’d call a tourist destination, however, it is home to some of the warmest, most inviting people that I’ve met in all my travels. We spent the majority of our time meeting the coffee workers in and around Managua, Jinotega and Isla de Nicaragua. We were moved to learn about all the many hands that work in service of producing the small and simple fruit, enjoyed by people in almost every corner of the globe.
