Alanis Morisette Partners with Costa Cruisesby Christine Ongsueng | April 18, 2016
Grammy winner Alanis Morissette has teamed up with Costa Cruises and Illy Caffe to support women in the coffee industry. A special espresso cup and saucer set, decorated with lyrics from the singer-songwriter's “This Morning,” is now available for sale on Costa ships. Proceeds from the sale will support education and emancipation for female workers.
Morisette’s relationship with the Italian coffee brand began in 2014 when she created the soundtrack for “A Small Section of the World,” a documentary by Oscar-winning director Lesley Chilcott that was produced by Illy. The film center on the founding of Costa Rica’s first women’s foundation of coffee growers, Asomobi Asociacion de Mujeres Organizades de Biolley.
