Stovetop Espresso & Moka Pots

Often called the "stovetop espresso machine," these inexpensive little brewers actually make something that looks and tastes closer to a very concentrated cup of percolated coffee, rather than (strictly speaking) espresso. There won't be much crema to speak of, and even though the pots brew under some pressure, they don't have anywhere near the oomph of the big honking commercial machine your neighborhood barista uses to fuel your daily latte habit.
