One of the problems with traditional espresso makers is that they aren't very portable. If you're craving espresso at work and your office doesn't supply an espresso maker, that means that you have to shell out money and time going to the local coffee shop. When you are traveling or camping, you also cannot take your home espresso maker with you. What's an espresso aficionado to do? This is precisely what troubled Wacacao founder Hugo Cailleton during a business trip and led him to the creation of the Minipresso.
The Minipresso GR is a handheld espresso machine that weighs less than one pound, making it easy and convenient to travel with. It measures 6.89 inches by 2.75 inches by 2.36 inches, so it will never take up much space in your bag. It comes with a built-in espresso cup and scoop. This portable espresso machine is simple to operate and does not require electricity or batteries. Put one scoop of your favorite ground coffee beans into the filter basket, carefully add hot water, and pump the semi-automatic piston to release rich, freshly brewed espresso. It does not require compressed air or N2O cartridges. The plastic materials that come in contact with the espresso are BPA-free. The Minipresso is not dishwasher safe, however it is easy to clean with running water and a damp cloth. And how is the espresso? Reviewers were satisfied with the bold, smooth quality produced by the Minipresso GR!
Prefer to use capsules? Wacacao also makes a Minipresso NS that uses Nespresso capsules!
