Caffeinated tells the story of coffee and the community that has evolved around it. Coffee has ingrained itself in cultures all around the world-as morning ritual, social lubricant, and livelihood. The recent resurgence in not only understanding the drink as more than just a fuel for mass consumption, but also a culinary experience, has created more desire to know and be involved with the places and people from where coffee grows.

User Reviews

Visually nice, not very engaging
30 November 2015 | by lukasz-960-449679See all my reviews

This is a nicely done series of anecdotes, slow-motion close-up shots of coffee or espresso machines, and non sequiturs.

Don't get me wrong, the visuals are compelling, the music is nice and watching this documentary was a pleasant experience. It's just that I'm allergic to opinions stated as fact and fluffy descriptions of tasting experiences. "Caffeinated" is full of such narratives.

The highlight of the piece in my view is the part describing the different kinds of coffee cherries, where they originate from, etc. This is where the most informative content is.

Summing up, it's no life changer but definitely a pleasant experience. Just like a nice cappuccino in the morning.
