The Coffee Man follows Sasa from Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee to Seattle, Washington (USA), the home of the specialty coffee movement and host of the World Barista Championship.
From humble beginnings in war-torn Yugoslavia to his adopted home in Australia, Sasa Sestic’s journey to the 2015 World Barista Championships is a long one. But his dedication and pursuit of excellence carries him through as do his family, his staff, coffee growers and roasters and the vendors who travel with him on this remarkable journey.
The Coffee Man is an intensely personal, observational documentary that will have you biting your nails, standing up and cheering; and wishing that you, too, could experience Sasa’s Holy Grail: the perfect cup of coffee.
**As a part of the ticket complimentary, during the event/ before the screening, the host - Fortezza Coffee, will be serving coffee brewed using Fort Wayne based and manufactured espresso machine, Modbar, with coffee beans provided by a Fort Wayne specialty coffee roaster, Conjure Coffee.
