Since premiering in May 2016, The Coffee Man has screened around the globe to overwhelmingly positive reviews and won “Best Australian Documentary” at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival. Barista Magazine called it “100% the best coffee film we have seen” and 2016 Irish Barista Champion Natalia Piotrowska after watching it said “I have never been more inspired”.

This debut documentary from filmmaking duo Jeff Hann (director) and Roland Fraval (producer) truly is an inspirational story. The film tracks Sasa’s life from his origins in war torn Yugoslavia to his eventual entry into the world of specialty coffee. Traveling with Sasa through Ethiopia, Honduras and Colombia, his passion to create the perfect cup of coffee is clear. But it is once the film turns it’s attentions to the World Barista Championships in Seattle, USA that the film takes a dramatic turn. Smuggled milk, Sasa being hospitalised, inability to taste his coffee and the torment of the judges are just some of the cliff-hanger moments that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

On 26 June 2016 Sasa Sestic presented the new World Barista Champion, Berg Wu from Taiwan, with his winning trophy. But while Sasa may no longer be the current world champion, his story continues to inspire and amaze people from both within and outside the world of specialty coffee.
