I don’t think I’ve ever seen my mother without a cup of coffee in her right hand to start the day. As far back as I can recall, it seemed like the first thing she did every day was start a pot of coffee – I remember the tins of Chockful ‘o Nuts when I was a kid — but never Sanka, even when it was trendy – “never anything that wasn’t the real McCoy,” she told me when I called her last night.

VISHAL SOLANKI podcast excerpt: "What makes us consume something again and again and again? We are never tired of it! That's a quality coffee has -- every morning there is something inspiring in terms of taste or how it wakes you up. The movie gives us a chance to reflect on it."

The Starbucks explosion came too late for Mom; she had already retired by the time there was a barista on every corner. “Now I love my Keurig,” Mom said. “It’s tasty, it’s quick; there’s no cleanup but your cup. My very favorite is Folgers Columbian, medium to dark brews. I don’t like Starbucks. Even their mildest one, I don’t like. Dunkin’ Donuts – I like their coffee in the store but I don’t like their pods. Not sure why.”

HANH NGUYEN podcast excerpt: "While making 'Caffeinated,' we would work at our day jobs and meet at midnight at a cafe and work things out -- over coffee."

I had Mom in mind when I agreed to preview a new documentary film by Vishal Solanki and Hanh Nguyen called Caffeinated that follows coffee beans from the ground to your individual cup and takes java drinkers behind the scenes with the growers, buyers, processors and coffee shop proprietors of the world.
