"Café sigue a una familia de la sierra de Puebla que debe sobreponerse a la pérdida de Antonio, el padre. Esto se suma a los problemas a los que ya se enfrenta una comunidad de escasos recursos. Teresa, la madre, intentará sacar adelante a sus hijos: Jorge, quien busca convertirse en el primer abogado de la zona y mejorar las oportunidades de quienes habitan ahí; y Rosario, una joven que debe tomar una decisión sobre su futuro." -Gatopardo (2017)

El 100% de la recaudacion de fondos se destinará a financiar el programa juvenil Nahua en la comunidad de El Tecomate en Chicontepec, Veracruz, México, que motiva a los jóvenes a documentar sus propias historias en su lengua materna: náhuatl.
