Life and Death of an Espresso Shot in Super Slow Motion

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.

    Use ‘Wait­ing For The Man’ by Vel­vet Under­ground…
