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).
Really great things are evident to anybody that’s paying attention. – Charles Babinski, G&B Coffee, Go Get Em Tiger
