Space Espresso

Yeah, yeah. I've been out of action.

But this story should make it up to you all.

Only Italians would send barista-astronauts (Samantha Cristoforetti) into space to make espresso in a machine made by Lavazza.

From NBC (in first link): "...Roberto Battiston, the head of the Italian Space Agency, called the coffeemaker a "work of high engineering" in a report from Italy's ANSI news agency. He said the experiment will produce "not only immediate psychological benefits for the astronauts, but significant positive returns to Earth and technological advantages for future space missions." 

Italians are too much.
