The Hand-Powered Portable Espresso Maker

Considering the vice-like qualities and addictive nature of the espresso, nature's Red Bull, we’re frankly surprised it took this long before some clever soul invented a device to provide us with a caffeine-loaded hit anywhere.

The Minipresso, opposed to most ‘portable’ coffee devices, is hand-powered, so forget plugging things in to sockets or purchasing those expensive N20 cartridges - just stock up on coffee grounds, flatten it out, add 2.4 ounces of hot water in the chamber and you’re good to pump away until that sweet, sweet nectar is extracted.

Acting like a high-tech Kinder Egg - the components of the device uniquely unlock from inside to double as points of the espresso-making system - the design of the Minipresso is arguably more impressive than the drink it serves up, even if you'll be won over by the final pour.

You can pre-order one today from Wacaco for £30. Just be sure to order some sleeping pills, too. You'll need them.
