The feature-length documentary from San Francisco-based production company and content collective, Avocados and Coconuts, and takes a deep dive into the specialty coffee industry, examining what it takes and what it means for coffee to be distinguished as “specialty.”
“A Film About Coffee” seeks to answer how the titular beverage has become a mainstay of culture all over the world. The film follows the production of coffee from farms in Honduras and harvests in Rwanda to its global consumption. 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.
