Grounds for arrest.

by Andrew MacGregor

1850 Coffee: “Quality That's Criminal” - 1 min 54s

"Four filthy numbers" threaten to bring a city to its knees in this entertaining spoof of police procedurals by 1850 Coffee. As a pair of grizzled cops - both of whom have seen, heard, and smelt too much over the years - discuss a citywide caffeine hit, we catch a glimpse of some of the prime suspects… and no-one is safe from a thorough bean-grinding.

What follows is a suitably over-caffeinated shakedown of 1850 Coffee drinkers, dealers, and backstreet baristas. The humour overall is broad rather than inspired, but director Andreas Nilsson still has fun raiding the Big Book of Cop Thriller Clichés. No doubt those who feel coffee appreciation has become too pretentious in recent times will enjoy the ride-along.
