Presso Mechanical Espresso Maker Nearly Worth Buying
The "Presso" is an elegant, entirely mechanical espresso machine, made from cast aluminum, with a smartly designed piston that draws water through the same same piston through which it presses the coffee from the cylinder. According to coffee geek Jim Schulman, it's almost
capable of making pretty decent espresso, especially if you mod the way the seal works like he did. Sadly, even post-mod, it doesn't appear to make coffee as easily as steam-powered units—it's just too difficult to get the temperature of the machine up to proper temperatures.
If Shulman's adventures with the Presso don't dissuade you, the coffee machines can be found online for around $100.
