Fortunes Gourmet Coffee Screens "Caffeinated" Film
Get to the root of where that coffee in your mug comes from — literally. In collaboration with The Parkway Theater and Feed My Sheep Association (FMSA), Fortunes Gourmet Coffee is screening “Caffeinated,” a cinematic journey of the life of a coffee bean. Told through the perspective of those who have dedicated their lives to the aromatic beverage, the film documents every step of the process: planting the seeds, roasting the beans, and crafting the drink. More than just a screening, the fundraising event on March 5 will include a coffee tasting, where guests can put their newfound knowledge of the drink to the test. Proceeds will go towards FMSA, a nonprofit that provides food, supplies, and homes for Costa Rican women and children in need, and The Parkway Theater, an initiative of the Community Reel Arts Center that seeks to augment the culture of the Sto-Rox community through film. Says David Smallhoover, Fortunes’ director of community outreach, “We hope participants will leave the event feeling enlightened about why coffee is such an art and science.” Tickets are $20, and are available at the door and at eventbrite.com.
