Life and Death of an Espresso Shot: Choose Your Soundtrack

Some YouTuber posted online a pretty nice clip of an espresso shot being pulled from a La Marzocco FB80 espresso machine at 120 frames per second. They recommend muting the sound, then putting on your own music. I gave it a quick shot with the famous soundtrack for Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. And I’ll be damned, it syncs up pretty well. Have a better soundtrack to recommend? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below.

    Just FYI, for the next time–that “theme” is from a piece by Richard Strauss named “Also Sprach Zarathustra”, composed in 1896 and based on Friedrich Nietzsche’s novel of the same name. So NOT really made famous by Kubrick.
