Episode 5: Tito

Meet Tito. He lives on a mountain in Panama, is a rebel and doesn’t listen to anyone. 

Which is why he makes a terrible decision: he buys a coffee farm instead of getting an education.

Tito is now stuck, chained to a system that will keep him poor.

But Tito doesn’t give up without a fight.

He will spend the next 30 years trying to prove he hasn't made the worst decision of his life. 

Everybody was telling me I was crazy. The only lunatic growing coffee, with such low prices, was me!
