No, you just let some hot water run in a cup and you're done.

Yeah, it's funny, it tastes very similar to Budweiser.

In seriousness though, yes you would need an espresso machine. I imagine that there is instant espresso available, but I doubt that it's going to be good enough to enjoy the authentic taste of various styles of coffee.

Most electric espresso machines are able to brew a lot of the standard styles with a simple touch of a button.
