Espresso in Space? It's a Thing

Astronauts on board the International Space Station will soon be able to enjoy some freshly-made espresso, after Italian coffee company Lavazza denied a custom-made machine for the orbiting outpost.
Called the ISSpresso, the machine uses a high-tech system to deal with the micro-gravity environment. According to The Independent, "The plastic tube that normally delivers water . . . has been replaced by a steel tube capable of resisting pressures of over 400 bar to ensure that no liquids escape and the final product is served not in an espresso cup but in a sealed plastic pouch." The machine will be delivered to the ISS in November by an Italian astronaut.
