Expresso is a series of eight micro-stories, that develop the viewer as they watch the visitors during one day, to one table in a typical UK coffee shop:
"Autopilot" - a man taking breakfast with his wife (Don Warrington and Isabelle Warring), is more involved with his daily paper than the conversation that takes place around him, leading to an amusing crossing of wires.
"The Liar" - a businessman (Vincent Franklin) who desperately wants to spend the afternoon with his plate of pastries, to the amazement of the waitress (Joanne McCallin) resorts to blatant lies to achieve this.
“Herbal Tea” - a couple (Guy Henry and Finty Williams) meet for coffee. But the lady who has opted for the healthy option, namely a “Herbal Tea”, has her eyes on her partner’s cream topped drink.
