By March 22, 2019 Blog

Have you ever had the craving for an espresso randomly throughout the course of your day? Maybe you hit that mid-day, post-lunch point where you just need something to give you some energy. The Wacaco Minipresso machine is the nifty little gadget for you then no matter where you are.

The portable espresso machine is small and light, making it easy to bring along wherever you are headed. It uses small quantities of water to inject into the coffee adapter, and after a few pushes the optimal pressure is reached and the espresso is extracted. It doesn’t require anything like compressed air or electricity for operation so you can prepare your drink anywhere. It also uses little pods so it is convenient for transportation and getting the right measurements.

The only real drawback is that if you are out in the wilderness and need an espresso you will have to settle for a cold one since you would need to use hot water in the machine. However, if you just need the pick me up a cold espresso might just work fine.

It is a pretty neat little gadget, and it is even under $50, so maybe it is worth a shot if even just for the novelty of it. You can check out the Wacaco Minipresso on Amazon here.
