Last month my caffeine enablers Rob Dunne and Vic Frankowski started training Spanish Barista Champion, Jordi Mestre for his trip to the World’s in Vienna.
I am claiming a small measure of his success (he came 15th, which is frankly incredible considering some of his competition had been training for years rather than weeks) as I worked on writing his script and also picked out the exciting citra hop notes in his espresso that constructed his dramatic signature drink.
All that aside, I was really just there to film a little looping reel for espresso machine manufacturers La Cimbali, that would be shown on their stand at the Championships.
Considering the extreme time constraints and fitting it all around my full time work, I am really happy with the results.
Lots of room for improvement but happy client is the main thing.
