I thought I was picky about my coffee, until I met this guy. Andrew Gage is the owner of Velo Coffee Roasters in Chattanooga, Tn. and when it comes to coffee he makes me look like a 80-year old grandma sippin' on 6-month-old Folgers with my chess buddies at the senior center (no offense grandpa). Working on this project with Andrew definitely added a few notches in my "coffee snob" belt. But, in all seriousness, it was a really amazing experience. I approached his commercial just like any other project with a goal to tell a unique story about someone who is passionate about what they do. I wanted to explore what made Andrew's business unique from other roasters (other than his amazing beard of course) and how he felt about running his business. Who says there can't be truth in advertising?
