Tokyo Smoke, Barista Brian and the Nomad Barista: making movies in Toronto

One of the most rewarding aspects of making Velopressos is the many talented and creative people it brings us into contact with around the world, and seeing what they get up to with our machine. Toronto-based Brian Leonard (aka Barista Brian) has been taking Tokyo Smoke’s stunning Velopresso trike out for spins around their metropolitan city, delivering his inimitable hand-drawn coffee art to a delighted audience. Over the summer he teamed up with roving photographer/filmmaker and fellow coffee lover Brodie Vissers (aka the Nomad Barista) to make this super-cool film in the Toronto sunshine, with Brian providing the soundtrack too. It really captures the ethos of Velopresso and the freedom it brings our pedalista-baristas around the world, and also shows how well the Velopresso fits into and stands out in a contemporary urban landscape like Toronto. We love it!
