Raymond's family want him to spend his life using a horse instead of a car, to live off the grid and have little contact with the outside world.
But young Raymond is curious and explores the outside world. His father reacts by moving the family into an even more isolated community.
Fast-forward 20 years and Raymond is pulling espressos in Melbourne.
How did Raymond escape? And how did he end up as a barista in Melbourne?

Imagine you’re a coffee buyer on a mission to buy Salvadoran coffee. We visit Armando and Maria’s farms. Which farm would you choose to buy from?

Gerry's cafe failed.
We investigate why by putting ourselves in Gerry's shoes and experiencing the coffee world as a blind man.

But Gerry demolishes expectations over and over again.
