How To Make Espresso At
Home Without Machine?

We recommend getting a medium to dark roast coffee to use for espresso if you want an amazing cup of coffee.

You can also make espresso at home using an inexpensive machine. The AeroPress, Moka Pot, and French press all produce excellent espresso at home.

  • AeroPress
    To get a perfect shot of espresso, all you need is good pressure. The AeroPress is the ideal candidate for approximating espresso. AeroPress “espresso” tastes and caffeine content match, but the texture differs from other machines.
    My trusty Moka pot. Coffee brewer's utility knife The teeny-tiny kettle creates an espresso-like pour that soothes the soul and energizes the step. It won't taste like espresso, but you'll still be happy about it.
    We recommend using the French press only as a last resort since it produces a concentrated brew. The French press gets you where you're going, but with less of a punch. For a little extra fat in your coffee, try this method.
