A Film about Coffee

Last month some of the Ballymena Today team had the opportunity to watch A Film about Coffee at the Mac in Belfast. We love coffee and were excited to see what the film was all about.

Listening to farmers, buyers, roasters and baristas about the crop’s economic and environmental implications both locally and abroad, the narrative travels to coffee shops in Tokyo, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and New York, with stops in between. Dropping in on artisanal cafes to investigate how each prepares its own unique cup, the film opens a window into the little-understood world of specialty coffee.

Watch the trailer below.

We loved the film – even those of us who aren’t coffee experts. What we really liked is the idea that everyone has something which they are passionate and excited about. Imagine you were given the opportunity to create a film like this. What title would you give it? What excites you?
