AEROPRESS MOVIE is a short documentary revealing the story of AeroPress - from its inventor's workshop in California to the stages of the AeroPress Championships around the world. It explores what makes people so excited about this odd looking yet iconic coffee maker.
In 2005, Alan Adler invented the AeroPress Coffee Maker and put it on the market. He made it out of necessity. There was no coffee maker producing a great single cup of coffee. So, he made one. After 20 years of selling his first popular invention - Aerobie Flying Ring - he and the company decided to dive into the unexplored world of coffee.
Fast forward to 2017, millions of AeroPresses have been sold, people are brewing coffee on the tops of mountains, on beaches, in forests as well as in their kitchens and offices. It enables people to be creative and invent their own ways of brewing coffee. What better proof than the World AeroPress Championship, with over 3,000 coffee lovers competing to find the best AeroPress recipe of the year.
The invention of Alan Adler has been embraced and loved by the community of coffee lovers around the world. That is the story we want to share in this documentary.

We spent the last 3 years creating European Coffee Trip, an online magazine about specialty coffee in Europe. In the process, we have created over 150 coffee videos for our YouTube channel. After filming with coffee gurus, at the best cafes in the world and at coffee farms we are ready for a new challenge.
As we want to get the best out of this film, we have put together a team of filmmakers and advisors. We are grateful to work with Jeff Hann, director of The Coffee Man, and Stanislav Hruban, producer of Choose Your Wave, to make this documentary great.

Risks and challenges
We have been creating coffee videos and short films for the last 3 years. During this time we have experienced many challenges in the process of filming and editing these videos. We have managed to overcome them all and even though you can never prepare for all the possible scenarios we did our best.
We have arranged all the interviews, we have all the filming equipment ready and the storage system in place. We have also collected a lot of video material that can be used for the documentary if needed.
The most important thing is that we are convinced to finish the documentary no matter the cost. The worst scenario is that we will postpone the release. In this case, we will inform our backers as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
