MEET THE MAKER is a docu-short series featuring authentic and innovative culinary artisans in the St. Louis area.

This series brings the audience into a world of handmade artistry with intimate footage and personal narrative. Viewers hear each story in the craftsman’s own words, bearing witness to candid musings on creativity, fear and following a dream.

Vol.2: The Roaster
After abandoning careers as a chemist and attorney, Scott Carey opened a third-wave coffee shop in south St. Louis. His stubborn and meticulous dedication to roasting seasonal beans and delivering the perfect cup of coffee has earned local and national attention, but the story that drives his determination is even more compelling.

The story behind my favorite brew bar. Great job, keep it up.



Vancouver: Never before have I been in a city that was as able and eager to strike up a conversation.
