Was the thought of being under-caffeinated holding you back from venturing into zero gravity? Well, no need to wait any longer: Espresso giant Lavazza and Italian engineering company Argotec have teamed up to create ISSpresso, the first espresso machine that will work in space. The machine will also brew caffé lungo (an espresso with more water), tea, and other hot beverages like broth.

It will take off Nov. 23, 2014, as part of the International Space Station’s Futura Mission. The mission will also launch the first Italian woman into space: Air Force Captain Samantha Cristoforetti, who will undoubtedly enjoy a few shots during her trip.
