Film About Coffee: Movie + Tasting
Conveyor- 317 W. Jefferson
"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. This is a film that bridges gaps both intellectual and geographical, evoking flavor and pleasure, and providing both as well.
Rockford Roasting Company (Rockford's first Speciality coffee shop) is teaming up with Conveyor (a one of a kind Story telling art studio) in order to bring coffee and film enthusiasts alike an event unlike any other.
A special screening of the film, a coffee tasting, maybe even a story or two will be among the evenings happenings.
