I gave this recipe one star because the author knew how to use the internet, the keyboard, and an espresso machine. The recipe (not recipie) is called Perfect Espresso Without an Espresso Machine yet the last sentence of the recipe description cleary states, "The recipe is for an espresso machine or a small 2 cup coffee machine like the Black & Decker quick brew." Anyone else see the problem here?
