The International Space Station is getting an upgrade -- its first coffee machine.

It is called the "ISS-presso" and yes, it makes espresso.

Until now, astronauts have only been able to drink instant coffee.

The machine is made by the Italian company Lavazza. It is designed to coincide with the arrival this fall of the first Italian female astronaut in space.
