How can the coffee industry be more sustainable with Maria Palacio of Progeny Coffee

Considering that coffee is often considered a staple pantry item for many Americans, how much do we actually know about where it comes from? This week on Beyond the Shelf, we spoke with the CEO and Co-Founder of Progeny Coffee, Maria Palacio.
