Often, we go travelling, for business or for pleasure. We head to the sea or the mountains, or perhaps another city. There we book a room at a hotel or spend some time in nature, but still feel the need for a good espresso. For those who do not want to rely on cowboy coffee or coffee provided by the hotel, a handy new invention has been developed. Minipresso fits in any bag and provides you with your daily dose of much needed caffeine.
“Doesn’t matter if you’re going away for few hours or a fortnight, space and weight are major factors when you select your travel equipment,” the product’s description explains. “Minipresso has been designed to be the smallest, lightest and most versatile handheld espresso machine. It’s also the first of its kind to integrate an espresso cup.”
The device was created by Wacaco. It has been crafted to deliver 116 psi of pressure which is considered the proper amount for ideal coffee extraction. The Minipresso features a semi-automatic piston that needs to be pumped by hand. It has to be pumped several times to build up pressure and a couple more depending on the size of the drink.
The body of the device contains a water reservoir, a filter, a pump and a cup that fits on top of the device. The Minipresso is 6.95 inches (17.6cm) tall, weighing just 0.8 pound (363g). Its reservoir can hold 2.35 ounces (69.5ml) of water. At the moment, the coffee maker can be preordered for $39. It will be shipped at some point at the beginning of 2015. In the future, the company is also planning to release a 4.6-ounce (136ml) tank that can be used with an existing Minipresso.
What do you think of the Minipresso? Would you buy it to make coffee on the go?
