Here at the Coffee Compass we love barista competitions and documentary films. It just so happens that Prima Coffee shares this esoteric intersection of interest. Their new documentary, The World Barista Championship – A Global Influence, takes a look at the 2015 World Barista Championship. Sure we’re biased– Prima is one of the companies that helps sponsor us — but we think this film is one of the finest examples of coffee cinema we’ve seen yet. The film is narrated by Steve Rhinehart and features interviews with a smattering of World and National champions, including James Hoffmann, Tim Wendelboe, and Laila Wilbur. Hats off to cameraman/editor Cody Maher and the rest of the Prima crew.
