You can get one for $7 at Target, Wal-Mart, or Amazon.com and they work very well. For full instructions on how to best use the espresso maker, read our guide to making espresso.

Start by brewing up a pot of espresso. Boil half a cup of spring water in your coffee cup for about 1 minute in your microwave. You can also boil it on your stovetop and pour it into your cup. Pour in the espresso. Drink it while it’s hot.
