For filmmakers there’s nothing better than when a great story meets great visuals, so getting the chance to tell the story behind Leeds based coffee roasters Cielo Coffee was a real treat. With a growing chain of coffee houses across Leeds and beyond as well as their own roastery, Cielo was founded by husband and wife team Nick and Linda on the idea of doing business a bit differently. We set out to produce a film which captures the heart of this fantastic social enterprise, and captures a bit of the magic that goes into roasting and making great quality coffee.
Paul and the team from Manto Films have helped us use video to bring our business to life in a way that fits perfectly with our culture and ethos. They can make a warm welcome at one of our café tearooms jump out of the screen; they can convey the art and skill of tasting coffee through film; they can even make a tea bag machine running at full speed look beautiful. They take time to understand their clients and it shows in the final films. We love working with them.
