Living in the wake of the Idi Amin reign of terror and institutional discrimination, one Ugandan coffee farmer organized a group of Christian, Muslim and Jewish neighbors to challenge historical, economic and environmental hurdles. He formed the 'Delicious Peace Coffee Cooperative' to enhance peaceful relationships and economic development. Partnering with a Fair Trade US distributor, the standard of living of the farmers is improving and their messages of peace and fair wages are spreading to coffee customers in North America.
