This might be a stupid question...

 


Can you only make espresso with an espresso machine?

Espresso machines shoot very hot water through very tightly packed, finely ground coffee beans, generally under some pressure.  I'm not sure how you would replicate it without a machine, but that's not saying it nobody else has found a way!


That said, though I looooooooove a good cup of espresso, both french press and the italian-style coffee engines make a very good cup of coffee.  It's not the same but still tasty. :)

Thanks ladies... I am wanting to make Tiramisu and the recipe I have calls for espresso so I was trying to figure out how to make it!  Maybe someone will chime in on how to replicate it for a recipe?  Otherwise I guess I have to go to Starbucks LOL

you don't have to have just an espresso maker to make it. bialetti makes a stovetop maker that works really well. its about $80-100, but if you're just needing it for tiramisu then you'd be fine to just get some espresso beans and just make it in a regular coffee maker. i made some espresso fudge and just did that it came out great. 


heres ina's tip on brewing espresso in a drip coffee maker:


Notes: To make espresso for this recipe in your electric drip coffee maker, use enough water for 4 cups of coffee plus 1/3 cup of ground espresso.
