My thoughts are an Aeropress is so much cheaper then this that it is no competition. The water temp in this seems to be a problem since espresso is brewed in the range of 195-205f and you have to get the water in the device then brew you are losing temp the whole time.

I'm with Rob. Aeropress might not get you "espresso" in the truest sense (or in any sense), but it's a damn good shot in it's own right. And for the reasons Rob pointed out I might very well doubt the ability of the other portables to really make "espresso" anyway. Aeropress cleanup is a breeze and it's pretty forgiving as to water temp.

I'm with Evan who's with Rob. I add: AeroPress makes best home/portable, easiest, lowest cost almost-espresso around.

I am not sure where this is going and I hope we are still talking about coffee.
