Jiro Dreams of Sushi meets Spellbound + Coffee!
In 2013, we followed some of the rising stars in the coffee world as they were getting ready for the Regional, National, and World Barista Championships. These competitions allowed baristas to showcase their technical skills and creativity as they prepared 12 cups of coffee through 15 minute demonstrations. While this started as a journey for a love of coffee it soon became a fascinating story about the people who dedicated their lives trying to push the limits of a single beverage.
