A 150-pound bag of coffee beans might earn a farmer $50; the "street value” of that same bag--10,000 cups of coffee--is around $20,000. By following the trail of two coffee beans grown in the Peruvian Andes, this program takes a unique look at the ubiquitous stimulant which, after oil, is the most globally traded commodity. One bean takes the route of the open market where its price is determined by commodities traders and analysts. The other bean finds its way into a new gourmet coffee launched in Britain by a company dedicated to paying fair prices to farmers for their high-quality organic crop.
