if you are a serious coffee drinker, we bet you won’t make it through the day without a few cup of joes. your need for coffees are pretty much covered while moving around the city or even in your office, but what if you are out camping, boating and traveling in locality where coffee drinking is not a culture? that calls for you to bring your own or b.y.o, as Aussies love to call them. instead of lugging the whole suite of coffee making equipment, Wacaco Minipresso proposed a single tumblr solution that will ease the tension of making a cup or two espresso outside of your comfort zone and the result is a solid cup of joe with the quality close to traditional machine.
needless to say, the real attractions here are portability and the ability to enjoy your favorite caffeinated beverage anytime, anywhere. and did we mention that it comes with its own cup? yup. it has that too, so there’s no need to worry about drinkware too. another notable feature is the ability to control the quality of the extracted coffee – thanks to an ingenious semi-automatic piston that works to inject small quantity of water into the coffee adapter. give the plunger 13 pushes to get Ristretto, 18 for espresso or 28 for a serious dose of double shot espresso. depending on your preference, Wacaco Minipresso is available for coffee grind or Caffitaly capsules.
all those virtues are packed into a sleek, contemporary and aesthetically-pleasing contraption that measures just 6.95 inches tall, weighs in at a mere 0.8 lbs, and has a 2.35 oz water tank as standard. there is an optional 4.60 oz water tank if more is what you will be needing. best of all, it need no compressed air, N2O cartridges or electricity – all you need is hand-power for the pumping action which is easier and faster to do than inflating a bicycle tire with a hand pump. if you love the idea of a sleek, on-the-go coffee maker, you can pre-order the Wacaco Minipresso portable espresso maker for a discounted price of $39 with delivery expected to be in “early 2015.”
