Coffee Week Launch: A Film About Coffee

The documentary, A Film About Coffee is a beautiful introduction to the world of coffee, being an amateur or industry professional, this afternoon of coffee will inspire, educate and motivate you. 

The event will begin with many of Edmonton’s premiere cafes talking about and selling coffee beans, brewed coffee will be sampled, following the film a 30 minute panel discussion with industry professionals and community members discussing coffee culture in relation to Edmonton.

Following the film we invite ticket holders to a private event at Transcend Garneau

Synopsis of the film to be played:

A Film About Coffee 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.
