I like coffee. To be specific I like espresso.
Thats why the thought of being able to have a portable machine that gives me hand pressed espresso on demand is very appealing.
Unfortunately it looks like a lot of other people are interested as well. The preorders system is currently closed down.
If this machine works it looks like a good deal at the preorder price of $39 bucks, quality remains to be seen though.
Of course he minipresso isn’t the first machine to try to fill this niche.
The Handpresso Wild Hybrid Coffee Machine
has been around for years, uses a bicycle pump style air chamber and makes surprisingly good espresso.
The Handpresso has the advantage of having a air pressure chamber that can be filled for a consistent expresso pull, but it looks like the minipresso will be a bit more compact.
