Royal Coffee presents the Oakland Premiere of "The Way Back to Yarasquin"

Editor Pick
Editor Pick

A cup of joe, that most proletarian of beverages, has enjoyed a dramatic transformation in the last decade. Especially here in the Bay Area, coffee has been elevated to nearly an art form, with roasters and consumers alike interested not only in the finished product, but also in a level of transparency as to where and how the coffee was produced. In The Way Back to Yarasquin, local filmmaker Sarah Gerber follows Alameda resident and coffee lover Mayra Orellana-Powell on a journey back to her hometown of Santa Elena, Honduras, a small community of coffee growers whose story, along with Mayra’s own, illuminates the intricate relationships between the people who grow and pick the beans that eventually end up in specialty coffee shops across the globe, and the coffee shops themselves. Mayra Orellana-Powell and Sarah Gerber, along with several Bay Area coffee professionals, will be available after the screening for a Q&A.
