Full set of instructions included, easily made with readily available hardware and lets not forget the caulk gun. Press out a single shot of espresso without spending the hundreds on the machine.
Instructables user Urant decided to create a pocket-sized espresso machine that could be built using simple tools and parts from a local home-improvement store. He came up with a tiny, soldered contraption with its own tinsy winsy alcohol stove that uses a filed-down syringe to deliver a very slow drip of fuel for a boil that goes long enough to extract a single shot. It’s a great design.
Most people would just buy a regular coffee machine when they need one.
But that’s just way too easy for this German tinkerer.
He completely built his own machine from scratch:
Although the website is in German, view via Google translate. There is also a very impressing video and many pictures documenting the whole construction phase.

Instructables user “iminthebathroom” had an idea to create a new device that would brew coffee quickly for larger dinner parties, and decided to combine an industrial BUNN type machine with the galaxy’s favorite droid. The best part is that he has provided step by step instructions, along with numerous photos, that can be used to create your own version.
Make your own mad-scientist coffee machine Walter White of “Breaking Bad” would approve of.
The vacuum siphon coffee brewing method dates back to the 1840s. It produces some of the cleanest, smoothest-tasting coffee of any method. Commercial vacuum pots are available, but I wanted to heighten the drama of vacuum brewing by taking it into the realm of the mad scientist’s lab. Thus the Florence Siphon was born!

By far the cheapest and simplest of the series yet effective.
Cold brew coffee: Easy, cheap, delicious and home-made. If you ask a coffee connoisseur to recommend a ‘coffee maker’ for you, they will probably mention a cold drip coffee brewer. And you will probably giggle with delight just how this one is made. Detailed instructions included.
