I don’t have space for an espresso machine, and beyond that, I don’t think I’d use it all that often because the thought of having to clean it would be enough for me to keep it in near pristine condition.
So I have a moka pot or stove top espresso machine which is small, easy to clean, and easy to use although there are some tricks to using it and getting sweet espresso:
The only tip I’d add is to use medium heat or lower heat than you might be tempted to use because it’s quite easy to burn the espresso if you aren’t careful.
Anyway, today I pulled out my little moka pot and made a simple cocktail with all the flavors of toffee. It’s deliciously dark and sweet.

Pour 1 oz of fresh espresso over ice in a 12 oz glass.
Repack ice and pour ½ oz black strap rum, ½ oz crème de cacao, ½ oz amaretto, and ½ oz butterscotch schnapps.
Serve with a straw.
