No music. No edits. Just the sights and sounds of pourover coffee brewing, and some running subtitled commentary.
I've had lots of requests for more in-depth brewing tips for the Kalita Wave dripper, so here you go. Hope it's helpful!

This is a short tribute to my AeroPress. Two years ago, one was given to me, and it changed everything.
For a little more than $20, this marvel of science will produce arguably the best cup of coffee you've ever made in your home. It makes no sense.

Jessica Fisher and I spent Sunday afternoon and part of Monday this morning shooting a test film on the new Canon 5d Mark III camera.
I'm in love with coffee. I started roasting my own coffee about six months ago, and I haven't bought pre-roasted coffee since. We shot a bit of the roasting process on my Behmor 1600. I purchase all my green beans, the roaster and supplies at Sweet Marias based in Oakland. They are a phenomenal supplier of beans and the knowledge and expertise to get you started in roasting.
The espresso machine is the Miss Silvia from Rancillio, with a custom PID (Temperature control) installed by Dave's High-Tech Espresso. Another amazing company.
A few technical notes:
The ISO's we used were 160, 320, 640, 1250 and even 2500 for a few shots. The shutter ranged from 1/160th to 1/30th.
Our goal wasn't to try to fault the camera, we just wanted to shoot something with it. This isn't meant to be a resolution test, moire test, or a rolling shutter test. We did find both moire and rolling shutter are significantly reduced (however, take a good look at the pine table shots in the end: if this was the 5d, this part would be painful to look at).
This is all shot on "Standard" picture style with only two clips getting a basic curves/levels adjustment. We underexposed a few shots more than we meant to. I will be color grading this, but for the sake of sharing I thought it best to show you what it does out of the camera. This is a quick edit, and I do plan to edit a tighter version soon. When I have the color timed version I'll add it to this post.
The video file is my sequence setting: full 1080p MPEG. I've made it available for download, I suggest you watch it this way for critical viewing.
Ever wonder what the steaming pitcher sees?

Freue Dich auf Aromen, die Du niemals in einer Kaffeetasse erwartet hättest! Der Duft von Blumen und Früchten wird Dich daran erinnern, dass es sich bei Kaffee um eine tropische Frucht handelt.
