LA Story (our Founder’s all time favorite movie!)

Aah! Legendary and brilliant movie from 1991, directed by Mick Jackson and written by and starring Steve Martin as the main character, ‘bored beyond belief’ TV weatherman Harris K. Telemacher. This famous movie manages to be a fantasy and romantic comedy. A beautifully crafted movie about love, life and how it is possible to find the right person in your life…eventually! One of the most memorable scenes from the movie is the LA style of ordering coffee. Coffee is the central element in this scene.

Tom: I’ll have a decaf coffee. Trudi: – I’ll have a decaf espresso. Morris Frost: – I’ll have a double decaf cappuccino. Ted: – Give me decaffeinated coffee ice cream. Harris: – I’ll have a half double decaffeinated half-caf, with a twist of lemon. Trudi: – I’ll have a twist of lemon. Tom: – I’ll have a twist of lemon. Morris Frost: – I’ll have a twist of lemon. Cynthia: – I’ll have a twist of lemon.

Now that’s memorable, don’t you think?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Beautifully produced and directed by Blake Edwards in1961 it is based slightly on Truman Capote’s novel. The movie is a blend of drama, romance, and comedy. Audrey Hepburn plays the role of Holly Golightly, a young innocent, unconventional, and socialite woman living in New York. Also known as one of the greatest characters in film history, she becomes interested in a young man in her building: “I’ve got to do something about the way I look. I mean a girl just can’t go to Sing Sing with a green face”.

The opening scene of the movie is when Holly steps out of the taxi at Tiffany’s tall brown building. In an elegant black dress, she gazes at the beautiful things showcased in the windows. In the meantime, she sips on her coffee from a takeaway cup. A classic shall never be forgotten. Coffee is symbolizing the main element of the morning. Notable isn’t it.

Coffee should be the main component of everyone’s morning, right?

The Usual Suspect

A crime mystery, and thriller from 1995 directed by Bryan Singer. The film follows the interrogation of a con man who is the only survivor of a ship fire docked at the LA port. The heroic coffee scene is when the interrogator realizes who the mysterious mob boss is. The coffee cup falls from his hand and shatters on the floor. The cup is shown three times in a row hitting the floor, creating an atmosphere of a big mystery solved.

“Do we ever really work out who Keyser Soze is? “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist”. Exactly!

The Devil Wears Prada

A young college graduate gets a job at the prestigious Runway magazines. Anne Hathaway playing the role of Andrea Sachs gets to be the assistant of Miranda Priestly played by Meryl Streep. An evil magazine editor, Meryl has a soft tone but a powerful and mean use of words.

She asks about her coffee: “Is there some reason my coffee isn’t here yet? Did she die or something?” Oh well! Not having coffee makes everyone grumpy. Meryl is not the only one!


In this marvelous Marvel adventure, the young and disruptive god, Thor is banished from the ethereal kingdom of Asgard and gets sent to Earth. There is a scene where he eats a lot of food and yet still is hungry. Thor drinks coffee with his meal. He smashes the coffee mug on the ground because he likes it and wants another one in his GOD STYLE.

Thor: – This drink… I like it! Darcy: – I know, it’s great right? Thor: – ANOTHER!

Like yeah, gimme more of that drink! He’s expressing a real coffee-joy moment here!


Think of “Friends”, you almost automatically think about coffee. Let’s cast our memories back and remember the ‘’Hot Coffee’’ scene with Ross and ‘’The Screamer” – Tommy, the mean boyfriend of Rachel. Maybe Tommy should have had a coffee every day, to avoid the grumpiness!

Ross bumps into Tommy. Tommy: – What’s in the cup, Ross? Ross: – Ermm… Tommy: – What is in the cup? Ross: – Ok, it’s coffee… Tommy: – Ice coffee? Tell me it’s ice coffee. Ross: – It’s hot… Tommy: – Hot Coffee! You idiot! You spilled hot coffee all over me!? What are you just a big dumb stupid doofy idiot with a goofy idiot hairdo!? A!? *Ross silently screaming for help*

Sex and the City

The busy and sometimes poetic lives of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte. Four smart and dynamic New York-based women, who despite their differences and ever-changing sex lives stick together through the ups and downs.

Carrie Bradshow couldn’t have said it better! Because coffee is surely one of the things that keep us sane during our daily life! So, listen to Carrie – next time you’re struggling with drama in your life or relationship issues, just drink a coffee!


The smash hit TV series ’Suits’ was full of tense relationships (just ask Meghan Markle!) as well as comedy as well as some great legal cases.

Now, coffee is pretty damned important in a law firm, almost like air! Apparently, there is such a thing as ‘’Apology coffee’’ – a soy caramel latte with a double shot of fear and guilt. Harvey practices that a lot especially when mixing up relationships and work. Anyway! Coffee can heal everything… or at least we would like to think so!

The Grinch

Here comes another one…in green! Now, we’d all love to have friends like Reindeer Fred, taking care of us with a perfect coffee on grumpy mornings. Let’s appreciate Fred’s efforts making coffee with a French Press! Do you think he got it right? The Grinch thought so: “Now, that is a great cup of coffee!”

The Lego Movie

Not just for adults, the kids movies are getting in on the act. This coffee scene from The Lego Movie showcases our obsession for coffee to the extent that it becomes priceless! And let’s not forget the constant positivism of Emmet, who is definitely a big fan of the black stuff. Would you say Bricksburg is the city of coffee lovers? Oh yes, we think it definitely is.

Barista: – Here you go, that’s 37$. Emmet: – … Awesome! Everyone: – Everything is AWESOME!

So there it is…. Our top coffee scenes from movies. If you have more or better ones then tell us, and we’ll post the best ones in our next update!
