More seriously, if you want a decent coffee at home at a budget, get a moka pot. It's not really espresso, but it's a comfortable substitute. None of that instant crap.
Interesting. That's what my parents used, though we just called it the espresso pot.
Every home in Italy has at least one moka pot (usually more than one). We usually call them just moka or simply caffettiera (coffeepot).

Recently there has been an increase of home espresso machines (like this one). Though not perfect, the results are closer to bar espresso.
I have one of those! (My roommate is from Italy.)
