Modern espresso machines have the technological advantage, but there's much to be said for keeping it simple with a stovetop brewer.  While they may not yield a perfect crema, they brew a great espresso.
First introduced in 1933, the Bialetti company says that the Moka resides in 90 percent of Italian households. 

Using it is simple: fill the bottom chamber with water, place ground espresso in the metal filter, screw on the top, and place over medium heat.  Pressurized steam forces boiling water up through the grinds and into theupper chamber.  Your espresso is ready in under 5 minutes.
