We are lucky enough to have been able to see a pre-release screening of Coffee Heroes and we can thoroughly recommend it. An incredible coffee adventure! Great to get some insight into how the different personalities deal with the challenge and pressure of competition. Our publisher is also an Olympian and he could relate to Sasa’s never-say-die, always competitive attitude and I, as his business partner, could relate to how everyone else feels in the presence of that kind of intensity! This film is essential viewing for every barista who has any aspirations of winning a Championship to see the crazy level of work and dedication it takes to win or get anywhere close to the top.
Follow them, Coffee Heroes Film, to see when the digital version will be released, which will be very soon!
