Good point. My steam powered espresso machine is the same thing. It forces the compressed steam through much too quickly to make real espresso. For that you need PRESSURE!

    Pressure, nothing. Good espresso requires the neopolitan style "upside-down" espresso maker. It's three pieces; from bottom up, a boiler, a filter, and the pot (which looks upside-down at this point). The whole thing screws together, the water is boiled over heat, then the whole unit is inverted allowing the *extremely* hot water to flow through the filter (and thus the grounds) very quickly. Pour into espresso cup and enjoy.

    Bonus 1: my "medium" maker can make 1-4 shots at once.

    Bonus 2: no power involved - take it camping!
