The perfect cup of espresso is hard to replicate at home unless you want to plonk down several hundred (or thousand) dollars. And that’s exactly why some of our tastebuds will perk up when seeing the Rok Espresso Maker. It’s completely hand-powered. It’s also portable, which opens up the options for just where you’ll enjoy a cup of caffeinated loveliness. You’ll need a good espresso grind, some hot water, and your muscles. And maybe some practice. That’s it. Sounds encouraging for the non-expert, doesn’t it? See the video below for more.
