Under Pressure

Even without electricity, Presso’s espresso maker puts a jolt in its brew.

Author JACQUELINE DETWILER

Espresso is coffee in its purest form, but all the shiny, complex machinery cafés use to brew it makes it seem a li le too scientific. All you really need to make a tasty cup are finely ground beans, hot water — and this arachnid-like espresso maker from Presso. Unlike many counter-clu ering behemoths, it has no plug and uses old fashioned elbow grease to pull the perfect shot, which is so much fun you’ll probably find yourself doing it until your arms are sore. Just don’t drink all of the output, or your arms won’t be the only things twitching. $150 / www.presso.us
