ISO great coffee experience - at the cottage

As excited as I am for our annual long trip to the cottage, I'm a bit bummed about a week of inferior coffee. In the city, I make daily treks to the best local coffee spots for my morning americanos. But up north, I usually make do with strong coffee from our 50 year-old stovetop aluminum drip coffee maker mixed with frothed milk.

Not wanting to invest in a pricey or complicated espresso maker for up there and thinking that 90 minute roadtrips back and forth to the city are just a wee bit impractical, I ask you, what's a girl to do? I had thought about getting a Bialetti which definitely fits in with the ambience of the place but does it not make espresso? Help (and thanks)!
