If you ever find yourself strangled on a island or in the middle of the Sahara desert and in need of a cup of espresso, the espresso survival kit is a must. All you do is pump it till the gauge turns “green” unscrew the porta-filter and add 2 ounces of hot water. Place a espresso pod in and press the release forcing the hot water out, and walla there you have it. (retail $150)
