Wacaco Company Limited has announced the availability through a pre-order campaign of their hand powered portable espresso Machine, the Minipresso.
Don’t get rid of your daily pleasures far from home. With Minipresso, be sure to enjoy a delicious espresso anywhere, anytime. Whether you plan to go hiking, camping, boating, or stay in a hotel, Minipresso compactness makes it the ideal espresso machine to slide into your bag or backpack. With little efforts, Minipresso helps you prepare amazing shots, with a quality close to traditional machine.
Unlike all 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, flavorful drink. Unlock it from its carrying position and press it at will to control the amount of extracted coffee. A few strokes and you prepare a perfectly smooth espresso full of savors.
The minimal distance between the water tank and coffee chamber, avoids losing too much heat during water displacement. As a result of our cares to build the perfect device, Minipresso produces at ambient condition 24°C (75°F), an espresso at perfect temperature 67°C (152°F) in cup with a nice compact and persistent crema on top.
Available in both coffee grind and Caffitaly models, you don't even need to remember a cup — the cap doubles as a vessel for your drink. 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). We recommend that users clean the cup and coffee adapter after each use, but stressed that the device is not dishwasher proof.
Crafted with reinforced materials to withstand shocks, Wacaco offers an unique portable espresso machine. An innovative creation, durable, built to prepare authentic coffee drinks. Minipresso is available to pre-order for $39 plus shipping and taxes. Units will be delivered in early 2015.
