Topic: Coffee brewing in films (22 msgs / 861 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
This would be a fun topic - I have definitely seen vacuum brewing in 
older films but I will make note of it next time I see it ... I was 
surprised to see Chemex brewing in Doris Day's film Pillow Talk. I 
had seen the conspicuous use of the Chemex in From Russia With Love. 
I know I have seen vacuum brewing in a few 20s - '30s era movies but 
will have to rake my brain to remember which.
I doubt there is a film with aeropress in it, nor will there be! Not 
very graceful or cinematic

2) From: Yakster
The Royal Vacuum coffee maker was featured pretty prominently in the Bucket
List.  While not a coffee maker, I just noticed the white witch in the
latest Alice in Wonderland (with Johnny Dep) using a pouring kettle that I'm
envious of to make a potion.  Of course, you can thank Fellini for his use
of real barista's as backdrops to his movies for an espresso technique named
after him.
It's funny, though, that when you mentioned the AeroPress, I could totally
picture it in a Mel Brooks film.

Or a Pavoni lever machine.  I learned the hard way what a Pavoni "sneeze" 
meant.  Almost had to repaint the kitchen...

How do you relieve the pressure prior to removing the portafilter?

Miracle on 34th st. 1947 has a stainless vac brewer in Fred Gailey's
(John Payne) apartment. Then the striped coffee mug of Charlie Sheen
in 2 1/2 men has been talked about for years.

I haven't had that machine for years.  I went to a Gaggia with a 3-way 
valve.  Actually, I wish I still had it.
About all you can do, is wait for the pressure to subside.  If you're 
careful, you can slightly loosen the portafilter to let the pressure out. 
It gets better when the grind and tamp is right, though.

Yesterday on "60 Minutes," in a feature on Extraordinary Autobiographical Memory (sic?), actress Marilu Henner (who possesses this rare gift) was being tested in a psychologist's office. On a credenza in the back I could clearly see an Estro Profi.

Then there was an episode of "The Sopranos," in which, after Edie's crummy Krups steam-toy machine goes blooey, Paulie sends them an all-bells-and-whistles eagle-topped Elektra Micro-Casa Semiautimatico--to which Edie responds, "You need a pilot's license to work this thing."

Good call and not to mention, memory. I believe he was in his pajamas during this scene.

On Friends they use a Chemex all the time, normally pretty central on the screen shot too.
There was a LM GB/5 featured pretty prominently for a scene in "The Eye" which was a horrible movie, but whatever...
Those are ones that come to mind immediately...

  I see Press Pots regularly in films & British TV series.  In an episode of 
the Inspector Lewis series we were watchin last night an 8C glass press pot 
was used to serve coffee. Espresso features prominently in the Swedish films 
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo & The Girl Who Played with Fire. Lots of 
coffeebar scenes & in one scene inside Lisbeth's very sparsely furnished 
apartment in the second film a quick pan of the kitchen reveals a nice 
stainless espresso machine & what looked like a big Mazzer next to it with a 
hopper full of beans. Very light on the furniture but lots of coffee!
