I bought one of these coffee presses (thanks Malthe for the recommend) and am dying to try it out. For a mere $30 – as opposed to a few hundred for an espresso machine – it seemed like a good deal for those occasional single cups I drink at home.
Will try it tomorrow morning and report back.
UPDATE: The coffee is amazing and making it is fun! I’m happy to not have spent hundreds of dollars on an espresso machine when this thing works just as well. Whoop! Winner!
