Euge, that's what allot of people have... I call it a moka pot. I used to use on e along time ago and if the coffee is fresh, it makes a pretty good rendition of faux espresso. Depending how the beans were stored, I think that they might have lost some of their luster as varietals but, roasting them will still produce "fresh coffee" I say go ahead and give it a try. I don't think it will be bad.
