Coffee: Why It's the Greatest Heist in History
Show Notes

In this special episode, Evan DeMarco takes us back to the greatest heist in history which, believe it or not, revolves around a coffee sprout! 
Fast forward to present time, did you know the world consumes 1.6 billion cups of coffee every single day? That's why coffee is a trillion-dollar global commodity. And yet, coffee farmers remain among the poorest of poor. Aside from climate change, they face exploitation, unfair trade, and many other labor issues. Evan proceeds to talk about Complete Human's partnership with Café Cara Mia, a non-profit organization supporting women-owned and -operated coffee farms around the world. 
Coffee has been part of our daily lives, and the people who grow them deserve so much more. Are you ready to make every sip of your morning coffee a movement for change?
