The Birth of the Coffee Snob

One hears of cheese experts and wine aficionados, but now people’s minds have turned critic and connoisseur to something much more mundane and closer to home – coffee. In Expensive Tastes’ first documentary–style feature, I explore the origins and psychology behind coffee snobbery – getting up close and personal with a self–confessed coffee snob, and finding out whether or not they are advantageous to the business.

Cinematography by Jonathan Appleby and Naomi Richardson.
Featuring interviews with Andy Staines, Scott “Wally” Wallis and Jess Jackson.
