Ritual Roasters in Hayes Valley San Francisco


20120225_Ritual_Coffee from elisa cicinelli on Vimeo.

This was a fun personal project to do on a sunny winter's day here in San Francisco. The concept was to capture moments, or rather the ritual of making coffee. The baristas at Ritual in Hayes Valley where kind enough to let me film while they poured, ground, steamed their amazing coffee, all while
I tried to hand hold my 5d with a very heavy 85mm lens (I just love shallow depth of field), so sorry for the camera shake. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new monopod so I can start my next video project. The music is from a great royalty free website, www.jewelbeat.com

Enjoy viewing "A Coffee Ritual" with a cup of coffee and take a visit to Ritual Roasters in Hayes Valley at Proxy.

At home making bundt cakes

While KP searches for her next chef to feature, I decided to try my hand at baking. I just love bundt cakes, so when I saw this recipe on 101cookbooks, one of my favorite blogs, I just had to bake! This cake taste amazing and... the secret ingredient, chocolate stout beer!
