Hong Kong company Wacaco recently unveiled the Minipresso, a hand-powered portable espresso machine promising high quality coffee, wherever you are. Measuring just under seven inches tall and weighing less than a pound, the Minipresso is highly convenient for travel and life on the go. Best of all, it doesn't require compressed air, N2O cartridges or electricity to operate. To use it, you simply fill the canister with 2.5 ounces of water, pour a quarter-ounce of grounds into the designated capsule, seal it, and pump the built-in piston by hand. A single shot of espresso requires just 18 pumps, while a double requires 28.
The Minipresso is currently available for pre-order for $39, with shipment expectedin early 2015. After, the price will jump to $49.
