Re: espresso coffee

Nancy and David,

I got a little stove-top espresso maker at a coffee shop for about 11
dollars.  It makes 2 servings (shots) of espresso, to which you can add
soy or rice milk or whatever you want.  The expensive ones are the
espresso/cappuccino combo machines or an electrical espresso machine.  I
saw the one I bought on Martha STewart or some other similar show and
the "coffee expert" she had on there said that they still use this type
quite frequently in Italy.  The expensive electric ones are mainly for
the amusement of us Americans.  anyway, it all screws together and you
put water to just below a little steam valve in the bottom portion, then
put your coffee grounds into a little strainer thing that sits between
the top and bottom portions.  As the water heats, it gets forced up
through the grounds and stays in the top portion, then you serve.  Hope
it helps.
