Wacaco Company Limited has announced the availability of their hand powered portable espresso Machine, the Minipresso.
The Minipresso allows the comfort and pep of an espresso to be enjoyed on the go and in the great outdoors. Whether it’s hiking, caravanning or staying in a hotel, the compactness of the device makes it the idea espresso machine to stow away in a bag or backpack.
With little effort, Minipresso produces satisfying coffe shots, with a quality close to traditional machine. Unlike other portable espresso units, the Minipresso is hand-powered, meaning there is no need to plug anything or purchase N20 cartridges. Its ease of use lies in the ingenious built-in semi-automatic piston that helps to achieve optimal extraction pressure after just a few pumps, injecting small quantities of water into the coffee adapter for a rich, flavourful drink.
The minimal distance between the water tank and coffee chamber, avoids losing too much heat during water displacement. As a result, Minipresso produces at ambient condition 24°C (75°F), an espresso at perfect temperature 67°C (152°F) in cup with a compact and persistent crema on top.
The whole device has been designed to be as compact as possible, measuring 17.6 cm (6.95 inches) tall and weighing 350g (0.8lbs), and crafted with reinforced materials to withstand shocks.
