New Film Will Explore Brazil’s Specialty Coffee Culture


Coffee is not just coffee.

That’s the name Supernova Coffee Roasters have given their new film, which will focus on the Brazilian specialty coffee culture. Called Café não é só café in Portuguese, it aims to showcase the story behind a cup of coffee: the human hands creating it, the different stages in production and processing, the places where it is grown and milled…

The film is currently being Crowdfunded, with just three days left to go. We spoke to Supernova Coffee Roasters, a micro-roastery and coffee shop with four locations in Curitiba, Brazil, to find out a little more about it.

Telling The Story of Brazilian Coffee

Coffee is not just coffee will centre on an old farm house next to a coffee drying patio in southern Minas Gerais. Minas Gerais is well-known for its coffee production – it accounts for nearly 50% of the country’s coffee (and Brazil, let’s not forget, is the world’s biggest coffee-producer).

This farm house, however, is in need of renovation. And artist Nuno Skor of Mucha Tinta has decided to turn it into a celebration of the coffee industry. According to Supernova Coffee Roasters, “He will illustrate the diverse universe of the specialty coffee chain on the walls of the house.”

The documentary will be produced and directed by Tomate Maravilha. Watch the film teaser below:
