No matter. For whatever reason (I'm trying hard to refrain from making the obvious puns), Kurt Russell subsequently purchases his own office "espresso" machine.

FrancisFrancis! must be one of the most popular movie set espresso machines. Here's a still from Mr. and Mrs. Smith:

Just rewatched Casino Royale last night.  There's a nice looking two group lever machine behind the bar in the casino.  You don't get a good look at it, but it appears in the background in several scenes.  Maybe someone can ID it.

Also, we recently saw Bottle Rocket, and there's what appears to be a classic Faema E-61 machine in the home of one of the characters.  His parents must have good taste!

Funny that I see this thread today.  Last night I noticed a machine in the "Nip Tuck."  I think it was an ascaso or francis, it had that color and style but the top warming surface was curved with like a cup fence.

Espresso machines pop up in the unlikeliest movies... like Speed.

I was just channel surfing and spotted one in “Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” today. It’s in Eddie’s apartment with a suitcase sitting on it along with a bunch of other coffee stuff. I’m too new to identify any of it and can’t supply a screen capture. It’s a good movie though so maybe one of you with more experience can take a look.

Not sure what brand this one is.  The espresso machine is partly obscured by the wall on the right, but I'm sure someone who's used this machine would recognize it based on the distinct PF handle and boiler with the funky topper.

The storyline centered around Droopy chasing that big-nosed dog around because he stiffed him on the tip.

Subject: Custom made espresso machine in the Green Hornet movie Jan-2011
 

Hi,

Anybody seen the custom espresso machine on the green hornet?  I was impressed by the coolness of it, except for the tamper which was built in into the machine.  They could have made it as some sort of autotamp with a lever.

Anyways, anybody know what machine those parts they used belong to?  I remember seeing some sort of gas contraption turning on before the espresso was made the first time in the movie, which might have just been something misleading.


This is my first post in this forum, so I don't know if resuscitating a thread that is almost 3 years old is a bad thing.  Let me know if it is.
