With the market for portable espresso makers getting busier by the day, French company Handpresso has carved out its own niche with the Wild Hybrid Coffee Machine. Operating (and looking) a bit like a bike pump, the Wild Hybrid is pumped manually to generate 16-bar pressure for perfect espresso. No batteries required. All you need is hot water (from a kettle or a thermo flask) and espresso coffee (ground or E.S.E. pods). While it's designed to satisfy high-end coffee cravings in the great outdoors, the portability of this device makes it just as useful at the office or in a small kitchen at home.
It's available via Amazon, where they provide a few tips for keeping the Wild Hybrid in tip-top shape:
