  • three part doco - black coffee

    Just started watching a 3 part documentary called Black Coffee. 1st part was all about the history of coffee and its spread from ethiopia throughout europe. Very interesting stuff. Learnign all sorts of new and interesting facts about coffee I didnt know before. I highly recommend it if you can get your hands on a copy.

    They had some film of the way coffee is traditionally prepared in ethiopia. Watching them roast it on a pan over the fire and crush it in a hollow log was pretty cool, might have to try that one day...

    Yes, this series was played over a three week period last year on SBS and I believe was available for purchase at that time from Dymocks. Where did you get your copies from out of interest?

        There is a lady in this that makes a latte by pouring the shot into the milk. Ive tried this and it can be quite pretty with just the dot in the centre. Tastes pretty much the same as a regular latte once you are past the froth on top.

        But is this a latte by definition?

          Mal I have seen this series in my local dvd store (blockbuster), Its in their special interest. Sooo maybe it might possibly be in other stores around the country (or maybe the manager at mine just really enjoys their coffee).

              havent seen em in jb, but in truth havent looked. Definitely worth buying though (depending on price)

              will watch the next 2 parts over the weekend.

              Watching it made me decide i need to get an ibrik and try to make my own turkish coffee too.

                I have always had a briki being of Greek decent.
                I ground up some home roasted beans a while back to a Turkish brew fineness and it went down well.

                    I have seen all three on SBS
                    First 2 are quite good but not complete
                    Its main format is akin to a promotional documentary with real and factual content scattered throughout
                    The 3rd is all about the big coffee chains like Starbucks

                      It wasnt so much about the big coffee chains, though starbucks was heavily featured. More about fairtrade and pushing that the producers of coffee need to be getting a better deal for their labours.

                      oh and a lot of mentioning how yirg is the best.

                        Heads up that this doco is being repeated on SBS over the next three Friday evenings at 7:30pm.

                            And if you want to buy the 3 DVD set, we do sell it (as well as some other select coffee related DVDs).
