For Christmas I was gifted a lovely tin of illy espresso beans. Wonderful! ... Except I don't have an espresso machine or setup. I've since started to wonder if maybe I should spring for a simple little doohickey. A Bialetti Stovetop Espresso Maker (likeso). I understand fully that this won't be the optimal method of brewing espresso, but it's much more affordable and can be stowed away much more easily than a bulky, expensive, ornate machine I might not ever use. I mean, I might not ever buy espresso beans. But I'd also rather not let such yummy beans go to waste. I've read the wiki article and read reviews on the specific pot I'm considering on Amazon and Peet's, but I guess I'm wondering if any of you wise folk have advice for me.
