A Film About Coffee

Does popcorn pair well with coffee? Looks like we’re about to find out.

CREMA--and the entire Tennessee coffee community--will host a screening of A Film About Coffee, a gorgeous, sprawling, and, dare we say, bold coffee bio-pic.

The film will premiere at the Belcourt on September 15, at 7:15 p.m (doors at 6:45). Tickets will be on sale here for $10.

After the screening, CREMA is thrilled to be hosting Miguel and Guillermo Menendez, our esteemed coffee farmers and friends from El Salvador. This chance to meet a real coffee farmer will be free to all guests--the after party and Q-&-A session will be held following the film, at CREMA.

A Film About Coffee, directed by Brandon Loper, is a massive achievement--Loper pairs beautiful shots from around the world with insightful commentary from coffee professionals, helping to display what a miraculous little crop coffee is.

From the film’s site:

A Film About Coffee is a love letter to, and meditation on, specialty coffee. It examines what it takes, and what it means, for coffee to be defined as “specialty.” The film whisks audiences on a trip around the world, from farms in Honduras and Rwanda to coffee shops in Tokyo, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and New York. Through the eyes and experiences of farmers and baristas, the film offers a unique overview of all the elements—the processes, preferences and preparations; traditions old and new—that come together to create the best cups.

The film has played to sold-out audiences in Honduras and Rwanda, San Fran and Seattle, NYC and PDX. Brandon’s film tells the story of coffee in such a delightful and interesting way--we believe it is a necessary story, and one you’ll love to hear.

Many of our Tennessee coffee friends have joined us to help make this night happen. We are thrilled to be a part--and know this will be a great night for our city’s coffee community.

Your task: mark your calendars. Tickets will go on sale on August 22nd--and will be on sale on the Belcourt’s site
