Oddly mesmerizing (and sensual) espresso-brewing video

Chris just sent me this slow-motion video of some espresso being brewed. It’s oddly mesmerizing, and sensual even.


I’m intrigued by the mix of colors. It almost looks as if someone added milk to it.

    Well , it is sensual in a way. I think a lot of folks miss the point a wee bit. Sensual does not necessarily mean that you want to screw the coffee pot.

    He’s back?? Take cover!

    I get the visual appeal of the slow-mo/high speed. And the colors and the texture. But yeah, I’m not sure I wanted to see that. ;) The subsequent comments are, well, vivid.

  • Jim Olson

    Yeah, I didn’t need to see that. But I watched anyway. Sort of like why you really don’t want to watch sausage or hot dogs being made…

  • Wow… I love coffee and good espresso, but that makes it look unbelievably gross.

  • Dakotahgeo

    ROFL… ain’t it great??? ;-)

  • Yep, I was just thinking “sensual” a moment ago.

    John, this is your fault since you brought that theme up for this video, and well, I’m going to go there:


    Sorry, folks.

  • Now I’m thinking: diarrhea.

  • TonyT

    Now I have to go to the bathroom.

    Sorry, I don’t see how you get sexual out of that. Maybe sensual because of the slow motion, but still seems a stretch. The color is apparently due to air bubbles.

    Nope. Didn’t turn me on… Now I feel dirty, cheap and used!!!
