When life hands you beans, make coffee. Espresso Manifesto is a seven minute animated film that reconsiders the origin of coffee through a colorful world of fantasy and science fiction. A mysterious café set beside an ocean of grass, a silent observer, metallic serpents, rolling robots, and one lingering question: Why is coffee just so delicious? The answer may be more sinister than you think.
