Please join us on February 13 at 7:30pm at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center for a showing of A Film About Coffee, an award-winning movie about specialty coffee. We are very proud to be bringing this film to our area through our sponsorship of this one-of-a-kind event. It is only the second showing of the film in New York State! Hampton Coffee Company will be providing a free Pour Over Coffee Brew Bar to all ticket-holders who arrive before the show and we will be moderating a Film Discussion after the movie.
We've always been proud to be roasting specialty coffee for our customers. It is truly such an amazing product as literally dozens of "hands" touch our coffee before it becomes the beverage we all drink every day. From the farmers and coffee bean pickers, to those who transport the raw green coffee bean to the ports in coffee producing countries, to the shiphands who bring it into port in New Jersey. And there are so many more people whose lives are affected by those coffee beans our Baristas craft into Lattes and Cappuccinos for the end user -you.
The producers describe A Film About Coffee as "both a meditation and love letter which examines what it takes, and what it means, for coffee to be defined as "specialty". The film whisks audiences around the world, from farms in Honduras and Rwanda to coffee shops in Tokyo, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and New York. Through the eyes and experiences of farmers and baristas, the film offers a unique overview of all the elements - the processes, preferences and preparations; traditions old and new - that come together to create the best cups. This is a film that bridges gaps both intellectual and geographical, evoking flavor and pleasure, and providing both as well."
Please come early to enjoy the complimentary Pour-Over Brew Bar in the theater's Gallery Lounge starting at 6:30pm, provided by Hampton Coffee Company. An interesting question and answer session with local coffee industry professionals follows the screening. Whether you are a coffee connoisseur, a foodie, an environmentalist, or just interested in how that coffee got into your cup, this is an event not to be missed.
