Stove-top Espresso Maker
User profile - Mikey is a lover of good coffee: fresh espresso from quality beans. He doesn't have the budget or space to justify an espresso machine at home so every morning he grinds beans and uses a stovetop espresso maker. It's fast, functional and cheap, but it could be better. Bodum and Bialetti dominate the home coffee market with their respective stove top espresso makers.
