Coffee lovers have been brewing the brown stuff for more than 1000 years -- long before the days of timer-operated, automatic grinding, electric-powered pots.

Go traditional (and electricity-free) for your morning cup with a hand-powered espresso machine, like this one from Hammacher Schlemmer.

Fill the top with ground coffee and push hot water through it for rich, flavorful espresso, and then show off your amateur barista skills by using the included hand-powered milk frother to make cappucinos and lattes. (Hand Powered Espresso Maker, $150)
