Handpresso Wild Ground/Pod Hybrid Espresso Maker is the first espresso maker to fit in your hand …or your pocket. It’s light, highly portable, beautifully simple, and unlike big machines uses little energy in either its manufacture or its pump action use. And it’s maintenance free and won’t break down. Just the shot (sic) for cyclists, campers, boaties, and trekkers everywhere.
Handpresso Hybrid is so named because it works with your fave ground coffee, and also with the increasingly popular European ESE Pods.
There’s no electricity or batteries – you pump it up just like a bike pump, add hot water and coffee. Then press a button. This is followed by a double shot of beverage emerging, a sudden ‘sphssssh’ sound, and a final layer of crema. Magic.
Handpresso’s inventor is the late Danish engineer Henrik Nielsen. He loved Leonardo Da Vinci’s motto “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. Neilsen was a keen cyclist, and it was the bicycle pump which inspired his coffee maker. The Good Store reckons it needs just travelling, outdoor cinemas, concerts, or picnics to inspire us to use it.
