Bialetti Moka Express 1-Cup Stovetop Espresso Maker ($(removed))
I've used one of these little stovetop coffee makers for years, and brought it with me to Rarotonga. I just started using it again. It make delicious coffee! Be careful about melting the handle, though.
Check out Ivan Hernandez's post about making Cuban coffee with one of these! Video below.
Best speed reader I've come across.
