Colombian coffee producers fight climate change

Can our morning cup of coffee help capture carbon? Acorn is the world's first direct trade platform that allows companies and consumers to offset their emissions through agroforestry on smallholder farms without middlemen. In Quinchia, Colombia, we find out how smallholder farmers like Rosa can take part in global emission trading schemes and improve their income. BBC StoryWorks created this short documentary, introducing us to Rosa's life as a coffee farmer. Like her parents and grandparents before her, Rosa has dedicated her life to farming coffee, taking pride in her produce. But as climate change decimates harvests, it's time for farmers like Rosa to adapt to climate change in a way that benefits her not just in the future, but right now.
