Nespresso “Barista” by Stuart Douglas

22 September 2017

When Sir Simon Rattle was on Desert Island Discs, he said his luxury would be an Italian coffee maker, so that he could make himself a really good cappuccino in the morning. (Not sure where he planned on plugging it in or getting the milk, but that’s another story). Sir Simon, apparently, loves the combo of the strong espresso saying “wake up immediately!” , and the soothing milk saying “but you know, it’s all going to be alright”.

We know what he means, and Stuart Douglas’s film for Nespresso, which encourages us to release our inner barista, beautifully captures a little bit of that vibe. And, mercifully, not a Clooney in sight.
