WINNER OF THE AUDIENCE AWARD FOR BEST FEATURE
(Livable Planet Film Festival)

What Should I Put in My Coffee? is the world’s first feature-length documentary about coffee creamer. Using this seemingly light-hearted topic as a starting point, the film explores big ideas about farming and animal agriculture, the environment, and the role of consumers in our current food system.

Follow filmmaker Jon Lanthier as he searches across the Pacific Northwestern US for the most delicious and most morally responsible creamer, interviewing dairy farmers; baristas and coffee roasters; Oatly, the oat milk producer; animal welfare researchers; vegan activists, and many more.

Where other documentaries take sides and push agendas, What Should I Put in My Coffee? meditates on, probes, and refuses to make up its mind about one of the most pressing questions of our time: is animal agriculture ethical?
