What viewers are saying
Though it’s a beverage, a commodity, and a consumer-good, there’s something about coffee that is fundamentally personal. It’s something you share, you meet for, and that has been bringing people together for hundreds of years.
Amy Ferraris captures so much of this in her documentary “The Perfect Cappuccino.” The title would presume a documentary about the pursuit of a certain cup of a certain coffee drink, but as is inevitable whenever someone takes a closer look at it, coffee is so much more.iTunes Reviewer
This DVD is neither a formal tutorial nor a detail scientific look at making great cappuccino. It is a wonderful personal and cultural journey about coffee.
I bought this not knowing what to expect, and rightly so. This documentary is unexpectedly personal, about the film maker’s cappuccino obsession and independent cafe owners. This movie has uncanny depth and is probably achieved by making coffee-loving people as the center theme rather than the beans.
