Long Miles Coffee Project


In the Long Miles Coffee Project, Ben and Kristy Carlson and their two sons may look like your regular American family, but the conviction to risk everything for something bigger than themselves is taking them into war-torn Burundi in central Africa.

Ben Carlson has been given six months in which to deliver containers of A Grade coffee from Burundi to a distributer in the West. If he succeeds, he will win a three-year contract for export at the best prices the Burundian growers have ever seen. This could potentially be a lifeline for thousands of coffee farmers, but if he fails the entire harvest will begin to rot and all will be lost. There is no plan B.
