Barista Magazine: Our Review of the Exquisite Documentary, “A Film About Coffee”
"What I really like about “A Film About Coffee” is its gentle, subtle, but seriously stylishly smart observations: It’s like a bunch of really awesome coffee people are getting together, and they invited this way cool other person—not a coffee professional but someone who appreciates both the taste and the aesthetics of coffee—to hang out with them."
Curator: Interview with Brandon Loper
"Through the eyes and experiences of farmers and baristas, the film offers a unique overview of all the elements—the processes, preferences and preparations; traditions old and new—that come together to create the best cups. This is a film that bridges gaps both intellectual and geographical, evoking flavor and pleasure, and providing both as well."
