We got beer in our coffee, and we couldn’t be happier. When the Benson Brewery moved in next door to our Benson shop a couple years ago, we never really thought that we’d end up working together the way we do now.

"The Coffee Man follows Sasa from Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee to Seattle, Washington (USA), the home of the specialty coffee movement and host of the World Barista Championship.
From humble beginnings in war-torn Yugoslavia to his adopted home in Australia, Sasa Sestic’s journey to the 2015 World Barista Championships is a long one. But his dedication and pursuit of excellence carries him through as do his family, his staff, coffee growers and roasters and the vendors who travel with him on this remarkable journey.
The Coffee Man is an intensely personal, observational documentary that will have you biting your nails, standing up and cheering; and wishing that you, too, could experience Sasa’s Holy Grail: the perfect cup of coffee."
Local artist, Sean Jackson, is going to be working his magic on our Benson storefront this Wednesday and Thursday evenings (5/11-5/12) from 8:00-close.

Please give him a follow on Instagram (@SEAN_W_JACKSON) and an atta boy in person this Wednesday and/or Thursday night!
