PHILADELPHIA, PA 10/24/16 -- Old City Coffee is pleased to present the exclusive area screening of Aroma of Heaven, a worldwide award-winning documentary about the Indonesian coffee industry, for the upcoming Indonesian Night on Tuesday, November 15 at the Reading Terminal Market.
With over three decades as Philadelphia's original small batch coffee roaster, Old City Coffee is a proud member of the Reading Terminal Market family, with its main roasting operation and two coffee bars located at the legendary food shopping and eating destination.
The coffee industry has more than 300 years of history in Indonesia. At the heart of today’s industry lies the legacy of imperialism and colonization. Tradition, culture, arts, faith, and indigenous beliefs all contribute to the story of the Indonesian coffee industry.
Featuring interviews with farmers, scientists, philosophers, academics, anthropologists, and business owners -- this documentary takes the audience to places it has never been and presents a familiar subject in a completely different way.
This is an utterly engaging film that poses the provocative question: how much do we know about the coffee that we consume every day, or the people whose lives revolve around supplying it to us?
Aroma of Heaven Director Budi Kurniawan is attending the screening and will be available for a post-film screening Q&A.
