While 2020 was characterized by one breaking news story after another, the year began for us with a trip that, in retrospect, will probably be our last great experience for a long time. Or at least an experience that we will never forget. Regardless of all other circumstances.

Last year, on a two-week trip through Guatemala, we produced the short documentary "Coffee for Life." The film provides insights into the cultivation of fair trade coffee that are more personal and intimate than most know. We had the chance to be very close to the Guatemalan smallholder farmers and their families, accompanying them as they work and live in a remote world.

Wilhelm Schulz and Lennart Neumann (founder of the film production salt & pictures), together with the founder of the public welfare oriented association MOCINO, Dr. Rolf Nagel, traveled to Guatemala in early 2020. There, they visited small coffee cooperatives and immersed themselves in the lives of small-scale coffee farmers.

The documentary “Coffee for Life” creates awareness for the elaborate process of coffee production and provides a personal insight into the lives of the people behind it.
