We’re far away from where coffee is grown. That’s not going to change. But every once in a while we get a glimpse of what it’s like to actually be there.

Meet theĀ Long Miles Coffee is in Burundi, Africa. They’re working with farmers to help improve their crop and, as a result, improve their wages and their lives. This post has an amazing audio file at the end where you can listen to the sounds and songs sung while they’re working and consider if you would be that happy working for $1.12 a day.

Settle back with a cup of coffee, close your eyes, and think about where it came from.
