Dangerous Grounds. Coffee adventure on TV.
Hello fellow coffee enthusiasts.
I did a quick search to see if there was any other mention of Dangerous Grounds and came up with nothing.
I am curious who else is watching this show and if they are enjoying it? I have not figured out to what degree it is 'over the top' dramatic or if Todd's adventures are always like this. There seems to be so much danger, but we dont really see it. I wonder how much of that is for dramatic effect? I know many of these places are in turmoil, so I appreciate that danger exists.
I do compliment Todd and the team for bringing this to the public since most people have no idea where coffee grows or what life is like for the people growing it. Bringing money directly to the farmer is the way it should be and I commend Mr. Carmichael for doing this.
My next question is, who has been to the cafe in Philly? PinkRose, I am talking to you. I'd like to go some time and maybe even meet up with some of the members here.
So please discuss, comment, enjoy.

I have watched all the episodes and agree it's a tad dramatic. Although I was down in Nicaragua this past March and we were accompanied by armed dudes the whole trip. Though that was a bit overboard until we went to some really sketchy areas.
Looking for coffee isn't all that exciting so a little drama I'm sure helps the ratings. Either way it's a cool show and good for exposure.

I recently watched the columbia episode 3 times. (Shared with a couple friends on separate occasions.) I enjoyed it. The tribe that Todd makes friends with on Sierra Nevada seem to be very peaceful. It was interesting to see such a simple way of life.

Cool concept but agree on the over dramatic part.
Have you bought coffee all over Central / South America?

I enjoyed the first season of this show and am glad to see it back for a new season starting January 28 (9:00PM ET) (on Travel Channel).
It certainly seems hyped but nonetheless, an interesting look at where our beans come from.

I added the time to my post but Travel Channel normally repeats the show a few times during the following week.
