Heat or electricity may not always be available to run a coffee machine or manual espresso maker. So what do you do when you’re sailing in the middle of the ocean and you’re craving an espresso? That’s where this hand-powered espresso maker would come in handy. You simply pour hot water into the top of the unit, then push on both levers to drive the piston downward, creating up to 10 bars of pressure that extracts rich espresso topped with crema.
The espresso maker makes two shots at a time with the ability to froth milk for cappuccinos or lattés.
Available for purchase on Hammacher Schlemmer for $149.95.
