is this a term already? if not, i declare it one. coffee porn is images of coffee and coffee accessories when the actual objects pictured are unavailable. also, it objectifies fancy espresso machines and colorful, unroasted beans. the problem is, i don't know where to find it. here's my contribution:
links to any other sites with pictures of absolutely incredible looking espresso machines (antiques, especially) would be greatly appreciated.

I heard "Coffee porn" at least 2 years ago. Our coffee manager was talking about a gratuitous espresso video made in Australia and she referred to it as like watching "coffee porn."
I'm sure that as a term it has been around a while, though it would be hard to track down a single originator. I know I've been using it for a internally along with "food porn" to describe the photo shoots for our retail catalog.
"Naked espresso" was a new one for me. I had my first about 3 months ago in the lab. I'm not ready to disassemble a portafilter yet, but watching pure crema pour was like... well, espresso porn.Coffee leads men to trifle away their time, scald their chops, and spend their money, all for a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking nauseous puddle water. ~The Women's Petition Against Coffee, 1674
