Premier of “After the Harvest” Film @ SCAA

Coffee’s “Thin Months” Highlighted in Film to Premier at SCAA in Houston April 28-29

Apr. 19, 2011 (Business Wire) — The next new thing to discover about coffee might not be in the coffee cup at all. Every year, around the world, small-scale coffee farmers and their families face “the thin months” – months of seasonal hunger following the coffee harvest. In Central America, this period, known as “Los Meses Flacos,” starts just about now and can last for three to eight months.

“After the Harvest: Fighting Hunger in the Coffeelands” will be shown three times at the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) Symposium and Exposition in Houston, TX, April 27-May 1, 2011:

    * SCAA Symposium, Thursday, April 28, 9:00 a.m., Hilton Americas-Houston, 1600 Lamar, Houston, TX
    * SCAA Expo, Friday, April 29, 9:00 a.m., George R. Brown Convention Center, Section B on Level 3, 1001 Avenida De Las Americas, Houston, Texas
    * Coffee Kids reception, Friday, April 29, 5:00 p.m., George R. Brown Convention Center, Ballroom B

DVDs of the full 20-minute film will be available from Coffee Kids (Booth 625) and Café Femenino (Booth 1143) at the SCAA Expo
