Here's a shot I pumped this morning in my hotel room.

I bought this with no real expectations of getting high quality espresso. I hoped it would make a decent cup of coffee.

I have to say I am very pleased with the product it can produce. It's not easy to make minor adjustments when working with a compact hand grinder and a microwave oven, but it dials in a good shot with a little experimentation.

No more Keurig or drip coffee when I'm on the road!
