Watch How Astronauts Still Make Coffee in Space, the Old Way

Video: You might have thought that by now astronauts were quietly sipping at steaming cups of Lavazza espresso when they wanted a coffee in space. But the reality is still foil-packed containers of pre-mixed "coffee with cream and sugar substitute". Tasty. In this video, astronaut Tim Peake shows us how a cup of regular coffee is made aboard the International Space Station. While NASA has, with Lavazza, developed a new espresso machine for the space station, the mundanities of real life mean that the old way of brewing up is, sadly for them, still alive and well.

    Poor SOB's a life without a proper espresso to start the morning is no life at all, even when you are hurtling around the earth in a tin can at almost 8km/s.
