  The Coffee Man

Documentary Film Screening

The Coffee Man is an Australian documentary released in May 2016 winning Best Australian film at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival and was the Official Selection at the 2016 Cinefestoz Film Festival. Rising Star Coffee Roasters is thrilled to be 1 of only a few selected to show this film in the U.S. Hoping all our customers, baristas, fellow coffee providers and any coffee fanatics can attend.

The Coffee Man explores the extraordinary world of specialty coffee and the lengths that one man will go to achieve 'coffee nirvana'. The journey takes the viewer from farm to cup, to the dizzying heights of international competition where Sasa Sestic will win at any cost, even if it means smuggling Australian milk through U.S. customs.

Sasa, a former immigrant from war-torn Bosnia found international acclaim of a different kind when he first moved to Australiain 1996, by representing his new country at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Meeting heroes such as Cathy Freeman gave Sasa a taste a victory that would live with him until 15 years later, when he outclassed competitors from almost 52 countries to win 2015 World Barista Championship (WBC) title in Seattle - the Olympics of coffee.

There is no cost to attend this screening. But space is limited. You must register. And yes, coffee will be served.
