Barista is also an exciting movie for coffee lovers. It follows five baristas as they prepare for the annual National Barista Championship. It is quite a funny, soft and well-produced film. It provides you a fantastic view of the world of barista competitions.
I love preparing and drinking this beverage, but the time and effort these baristas put towards their craft leave me dumb folded. Pulling the best shot and putting on the incredible performance becomes an obsession for each of them.
This film offers an excellent view of a niche area of coffee culture. It does a fantastic job of getting you to root for the lovable baristas. The experience of watching this movie was something I can explain in words. I recommend you should go for it and find it yourself!

5. Caffè Sospeso (2017): Coffee for All
Caffè Sospeso is a documentary about an adventurous journey from Naples to Buenos Aires to New York. It expresses the cultural tradition included in having coffee in a variety of places around the world.
After WWII time, Napoli was very poor. The city had hugely gone through because of German occupation and Allied bombing. Poverty was an additional rife. Those who could afford a coffee paid for two but consumed only one, leaving one cup available to someone who wants it.
Depend on the barista’s judgment, this coffee would then be given to an individual that needed. So, drinking coffee has become a social event. It is a tasty beverage that brings people together. The suspended coffee tradition had no longer existed, but now, a group of cafés in Naples is beginning it again. This exciting documentary explains such tradition and also other unusual, quirky, coffee-related old stories.
Drinking a hot cup of coffee while watching such a historic coffee-based entirely on past events makes me feel a new person. You may also feel the same if you get a chance to watch this documentary!
