Aroma of Heaven
The coffee industry has more than 300 years of history in Indonesia. At the heart of today’s industry lies the legacy of imperialism and colonization. Tradition, culture, arts, faith, and indigenous beliefs all contribute to the story of the Indonesian coffee industry.

Featuring interviews with farmers, scientists, philosophers, academics, anthropologists, and business owners – this Feature doc takes the audience to places it has never been and presents a familiar subject in a completely different way.

Aroma of Heaven is an utterly engaging film that poses the provocative question: how much do we know about the coffee that we consume every day, or the people whose lives revolve around supplying it to us?

Director Budi Kurniawan expected in attendance for post-film Q&A.

Event co-sponsored by Old City Coffee, Inc., Reading Terminal Market, and Modero & Company
