Part love letter, part visual treatise, A Film About Coffee is a beautiful documentary that explores the growing field of specialty coffee. It’s a short but comprehensive film that ebbs and flows from roastery to farm to café. With interviews from industry professionals around the world—including company owners, champion baristas, seasoned growers, and dedicated buyers—this food doc covers many bases to prove the importance of ethically sourced and skillfully crafted coffee.

By showing the hard work and passion it takes to make a great cup of coffee, A Film About Coffee asks viewers to consider coffee as more than just a commodity. As a loyal fan of specialty coffee, I totally loved this film! But I think it’s worth watching regardless of your feelings towards third wave coffee.
