I recently collaborated with Emporio Coffee to shoot a video showcasing the coffee making process. Emporio do barista training on site at their Abel Smith Street base.
The concept was to really distill the process of making an espresso based coffee down to it’s essence and get viewers excited about making coffee. If you get a chance, I do recommend doing the training or at least checking out the facility where they do the training. There are all kinds of equipment set up with different techniques for coffee making like chemex and drip methods!
The team were great to work with – super helpful in setting up shots and explaining the process to me. As is often the case in filmmaking, a number of takes was needed to get the kind of angle and movement that worked to tell the story. We shot most of the video in one session, going back to do a few pickups when reviewing the footage on another day.
Hope you enjoy!
