Crew members on long-duration space missions frequently miss the comforts of home, from favorite meals to a fresh cup of coffee. ISSpresso is an espresso maker for the International Space Station (ISS) that crew members use to make tea, coffee, broth, or other hot beverages they might enjoy. The ISSpresso is not much larger than a typical espresso machine that would be found on the ground. . Water at room temperature is heated and pressurized to brew espresso, improving food options and variety for orbiting crew members. The technology developed to provide espresso, and other hot beverages, in a microgravity environment could lead to new or improved brewing methods and techniques in Earth-based applications.

Mission: Expedition 43/44, 45/46, 55/56
