All praise Paul "Jesusman" Bassett.

None of this "sexxxpresso" BS like they have down in Seattle. This is the real deal. And is supposed to be part of a forthcoming national television marketing campaign. When I talk high praise of the Aussie espresso market, position, and "status", this is the kinda thing I'm talking about. It'll be years, decades until we see something like this on mainstream N. American TV.

Hey, any Aussies wanna send me a couple of those 52ish mm non-pressurized filter baskets that Sunbeam Aus uses? The ones that'll fit the Krups XP machines?

Wow if it wasn't for the onscreen clock I would have sworn that was in slow motion.  Very nice!  I've had a couple shots flow slowly like that (but not that slow) and they were simply amazing shots.

Brilliant marketing.  Letting the product do all the talking, instead of a smuck as they do in a typical commercial.

It's either in slomo or it's as thick as molasses.  I don't really trust that clock, or else I'm not reading it right.

Nah, its just that they mix a bit of vegemite with their espresso grounds.  Makes a real thick crema.  Kind of tangy I hear, also.
