You want espresso? It makes it. You want a cup of coffee? It makes that too. Tea? Of course! It can do it all in about 3 minutes. Works great on the burner at home and even better over the stove at camp. Coffee tastes fresh and is delivered hot! It breaks down and can be thrown into a pack and put back together in 15 seconds.
Indeed, there is some splatter at the end of the brew. The trick is to take it off the heat right as it starts to really jet out at the end and let it sit for about 30 seconds. Then put it back on the heat and it will come out smoothly again. You get the most out of each batch that way. I also put some tin foil over the top of the cup and that keeps any coffee from getting on my stove.
Really, this is an excellent product. I can't recommend it enough.
I used to have the single cup aluminium version, and I found I had to waste a lot of time as a decent coffee for me is about 3 or four of what the smaller one produces, but this one gives me a nice healthy mugful, in about the same amount of time, and at not much extra weight. Also, I was a bit sketched out at using aluminium at such a high temperature, so the stainless steel is worth it to me, as it is less likely that I imbibe some of the metal.

Technically this does not produce espresso (you need a powerful electric pump operating at 8 to 10 bar pressure to make real espresso) but it does produce a really superb 'cup of Joe'. It's basically like a traditional 'mocha pot' but with your cup taking the place of tbe top chamber.
Build quality is exemplary. Should last for years.
I grind my coffee at home and take the grounds with me. My tips: use a rich, round-flavoured coffee, try a fairly coarse grind, don't pack the basket too full (the coffee needs room to expand) and use a gentle heat. Do it right and you'll have a world-class coffee!
