Just in case you were ever too embarrassed to ever ask...
... Or have forgotten how to use it after
a few years of pulling through the Starbucks drive-thru,
... Or maybe you were just lucky enough to have always had
someone else make your espresso for you & never had to learn.
Whatever your excuse may be
for never learning to navigate one of these contraptions-
you now have your own guide
to making your own pot of espresso.
Here's a more detailed tutorial:
Fill the bottom up with cold water
Fill the middle section with espresso.
Screw all the pieces together.
Sit the pot on a hot stove for about five minutes.
You should hear some faint bubbling and see steam appear.
Once the bubble subsides, take a peek inside.
Your espresso will be done when the coffee stops pouring out of the center.
Remove the pot from the heat immediately.
Serve and enjoy.
Easy, delicious, cheap,
and the perfect "shot" of Italy for your day.
