Join us for a discussion on the film BARISTA (2014). "Every year thousands of baristas compete to see who can make the world’s best coffee. They have 15 minutes to make 12 drinks -- to make an impact. It's like the Olympics of the coffee world. BARISTA follows these young, hungry (thirsty?) baristas trying to make their mark… as they try to be the best in the world. This documentary follows some of the rising stars in the coffee world, as they prepare for the World Barista Championships. While this started as a journey for a love of coffee it soon became a fascinating story about the people who dedicate their lives to trying to please others sip by sip. From tiny coffee shops in alleys, to backroom latte competitions, to the grand stage at nationals, the coffee world is full of quirky, colorful personalities trying to push the limits of a single beverage. A story that made you want to laugh, cry, and most of all, order a cup of coffee."
