Food Flick Friday: Drip, a Coffee Documentary
Another food-focused project seeks funding on Kickstarter
Jimmy Nguyen is a producer of Drip, a documentary about the U.S. national barista championships. He started out by filming baristas making great cups of coffee, but the project has turned into a study of the human competitive spirit and the elevation of an everyday beverage into something aspirational and unique. Local L.A. barista Charles Babinski (Go Get Em Tiger, G&B Coffee) is involved in the film, as are Truman Severson and Ryan Redden (of Portola Coffee Lab) and Edem-Marie Abramowicz (of Intelligentsia).
The project is seeking additional funding on Kickstarter. There are only five days left to contribute. Love coffee? Have money? Get to it!
Really great things are evident to anybody that’s paying attention. – Charles Babinski, G&B Coffee, Go Get Em Tiger
