Welcome to one of the more surreal, absurdist, and yet strangely believable coffee videos you will see in your life. Filmed over the course of one evening by director Jake Szymanski, with original concept by Joe Marrocco and Noah Namowicz, this video will serve as Cafe Imports‘ commercial on the big video monitors at the 2014 United States Barista Championship and World Barista Championship.
