Summary

There are extraordinary stories hidden in your cup of coffee.

"An entertaining and thought-provoking way to address how coffee consumption affects the wider world" - Caffeine Magazine

James Harper is a professional storyteller and coffee lover who travels the world to reveal the truth behind our morning coffees.

Each story is a real-life movie. We visit a stateless barista stuck on a faraway island, meet an award winning coffee grower earning just $2 profit from 250 espressos, hear from a coffee producer who is almost murdered three times during a civil war, and much more.

About the Host

James Harper

James Harper

Founder

An Italian Australian with a British twang, James fell in love with coffee as a teenager in Italy. He's worked across the coffee world but kept running against the same problem: nobody knew what was really happening. So he went off to uncover the reality and discovered uncomfortable, hidden truths. Armed with these stories and a background in storytelling, James started Filter Stories to help coffee drinkers understand how their morning cup of coffee impacts tens of millions of people.
