coffee, please


I grew up surrounded by coffee trees. Perhaps the rich coffee’s color palette helped me to build the way I contemplate the power of images. The dark earth, intense green leaves, white flowers, fruits metamorphosed from green to yellow and a deep red. Pale green seeds that magically turned into intense chocolate after roasting. The pleasure of grinding coffee beans and turning them into a cup of the most consumed beverage in the world. How not to fall in love? Nowadays I’m living far from ‘coffee lands’, but I captured footage to remind myself, I have it deep in my soul. And I kept up the ritual of making coffee, daily – of course.

Since ever and forever.

Without my morning coffee, I’m just like a dried-up piece of goat.
