    tv shows/ films with coffee references

    Hi all. haven't posted for a while. Haven't had much to say. But for ages I've wanted to get this one going.

    Can you tell us what your favourite coffee references are in tv shows or films?

    I seem to be able to think of several tv show references. Here are some to get the ball rolling:

    Seinfeld: Kramer spilling the coffee in the cinema, injuring himself. He blows a massive settlement and ends up with a lifetime supply of caffe lattes. He also applies a balm to treat his injury without his lawyer's permission.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm: Larry has good fortune and shouts the bar at a Starbucks. He calls out something like "Here. everone have one of those grande, mocha latte bullshit frappaccinos." I loved that . Worth checking for the right quote.

    The IT crowd: The short barista (mildly offensive to me, but I can take it). I love the way the handsome barista acts.

    Bob Fossil's pocket cup gets an honourable mention, but only coz I'm a fan of 'The Mighty Boosh'.


    In films, the only classic that always comes to mind for me is Flying High , where the young girl says "I take it black ... like my men."



    Fire away.


    Oh yeah . I watched a bit of Gilmore Girls recently , as it's supposed to be loaded with coffee references. It is, but I only lasted one scene.

    You can look up James Bond La Pavoni. You'll see him crack out a cappuccino in about 12 seconds . Then the one who invents everything (sorry. Not a regular follower of Jb. Is it "q"?) says "is that all it does?"

    Funny

    There's a wonderful scene in Green Hornet where Kano makes a coffee on the ultimate machine. Search Youtube for "The Green Hornet - Coffee Scene - Kato's Arrival - Full HD" and you'll see it.

    I quite the scene from the Sopranos, where Paulie is in a 'gourmet' coffee shop whingeing about how all the non-Italians ran the 'expresso' shops, and how the Italians had invented 'expresso'. I think he then steals an espresso machine (might have been a Moka pot) from them.
