Espresso Manifesto Short Animated Film by Shaun Pitz

Espressomanifesto

Over at Kickstarter Shaun Pitz is working very hard to show the battle line between coffee and espresso in a new short film.

 "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 cafe 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. "

Shaun works in a coffee shop by day and has been animating and creating the film at night. We're thinking given the trailer a bit Shaun has been a bit hopped up on espresso and coffee the entire time.

Caribou Coffee Won't Do In Store Coffee Shops at JCPenney

Chasteen JC+penny 012612 298

Well JCPenney can't even catch a coffee break from Caribou Coffee. Caribou had announced a potential partnership about six months ago, but now it's not so interested in being in the in store coffee brand for JCPenney. We thought the cafe idea and in store coffee would have made a nice splash for JCPenney customers. Perhaps they can attract another brand?
