Handpresso Wild Espresso Maker : Great coffee – no mess.

I bought this because i work in an office with nothing but a rubbish coffee machine and a boiler. I previously worked in the middle of london and got used to decent coffee from the nearby italian coffee shop. The handpresso didn’t disappoint. You need to preheat the espresso cup and the glass reservoir or it won’t be hot enough. But the coffee has a good kick and a nice crema on top. The best pods i’ve found so far have been the waitrose own-brand. About half the price of illy and a darker roast. I store it in my drawer at work and the thin paint on the bezel around the pressure gauge has started to come off, but it’s only cosmetic and it still seems to be a very solidly built machine. Now i just have to teach my colleagues to stop calling it ‘expresso’highly recommended.

I was offered this as a present by anyone who usually has to pay attention to me moaning about not getting in a position to get a very good cup of coffee when i am out and about. This produces a excellent cup of coffee and i now take it with me whenever i am travelling – you can in fact make a respectable cup of coffee in your lodge space or even in a tentit creates a excellent espresso with a affordable crema. And it scores top marks for gadget valuemy only grievance is that filling the basket with grinds is a bit fiddly, if they could deliver some form of funnel or other way of finding the grinds into the basket with no them spilling all above the put that would be fantastic – or possibly some kind of tackle that you can keep the tiny basket in whilst filling it. I choose a cork with me to make confident that the grinds are decently tamped down, but if the deal with on the pump ended up slighly redesigned this could be utilised as a superior tamper. Frequently an great machine. And i see that you can get a model which comes with a pucksack and a thermos for incredibly hot h2o. I would definately get that variation if i were being getting this again.

I had this delivered yesterday and i am using it with illy pods in my office which lacks a decent coffee machine. This is beautifully designed and built. It produces a decent shot of espresso with the minimum of fuss. It only needs a few pumps to get up to pressure and is very easy to use. The coffee produced is as good as the full sized nespresso machine i use at home. When you are done remove the pod and rinse the exit nozzle and stick it back in the drawer. A very good product that lives up to its advertising. Here are the specifications for the Handpresso Wild Espresso Maker:

  • The world’s smallest, portable, non-electrical 16 bar espresso machine
  • Uses all brands of E.S.E Pods available in most major supermarkets
  • Product Dimensions:25×12.7×9.7 cm

‘handpresso’ espresso maker. The ‘handpresso’ does ‘what it suggests on the tin’ and makes a good cup of espresso from a regular coffee pod. A disadvantage is that you have to load the container with very hot h2o from a kettle (or thermos if you are outdoor) for each espresso you want to make. It works properly with standard coffee pods. It just needs to be pumped up a number of times to get strain up and then it delivers a beautifully respectable espresso. A most helpful system if you desire to make an espresso in your resort bedroom or on a picnic. Not a applicant for your major espresso maker but a useful portable adjunct.

Had my handpresso for over 5 years, and it’s still going strong. Used daily at work, i don’t have to have it p. Tested or plug it into the mains. I would agree with an earlier review, that the original filter makes the coffee too quickly, so, is spite of handpresso saying it’s incompatible, i use the intense filter. Beware though, this is incompatible in so far as it breaks off one of the caps from the two way valve release. However, providing you keep the valve lubed with a couple of drops of vegetable oil, as detailed on the handpresso site, it does not interfere with the operation of the machine. You do have to replace the o-ring seals periodically, i’ve just done the pod holder seal for the second time, and the pod holder valve seal (you have to remove four screws to remove the pod holder) for the first time. Lubed, and i expect smooth operation for continue indefinitely. You do get other seals in the seal-sets you can buy on 2rd party sites, but i don’t know how you get further into the machine to replace the others. I’m not going to risk breaking it when it’s working perfectly fine. If anybody knows how to do it, please let me know .

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Small and perfectly formed
  • Great coffee – no mess.
  • Great little gadget

My initial purchase had to be returned as it stopped holding pressure, the replacement was dispatched without hesitation and has been excellent i am a coffee addict and cant manage without and this produces an excellent espresso with a good crema i am using the intense esse pods.

Does what it says on the tin. Utilized it just about every day whilst on vacation. Helps make a terrific espsesso employing waitrose coffee pods. The fantastic factor about this is the capability to make excellent coffee with only a kettle. Uncomplicated to use prividing you remeber to maintain it the ideal way up. The recommendations are having said that a minor obscure. It took three goes to get the cling of applying it. Establish high-quality really very good, i hope it lasts a couple of a long time.

Fantastic coffee and fantastic company. Had my handpresso for about 9 years now. I’ve used it almost every day and it’s been brilliant – makes great coffee and is quick and easy. I had to replace the rubber gasket after a few years, but one comes in the box so that wasn’t a problem, however last week the ‘stop’ button broke off. I e-mailed handpresso to ask whether after all this time it was still possible to get it repaired (given that it’s been out of warranty for 8 years) but they e-mailed back to say they were sorry i was having a problem and they’d put the part i needed in the post. Sure enough it arrived the next day – from france. I don’t think i’ve ever had such good customer service on anything i’ve ever owned. I can’t rate the product and the company highly enough.

A shot of something special. Love this, bought for my husband to use at his work, and he loves it. His colleagues are very intrigued. He really enjoys a shot of expresso, a little something special in the day.

I like (need) a strong espresso to wake up in the morning. I got this for a holiday trip and it worked out really well. As long as you have access to hot water it makes coffee making really simple. It produces a really nice little cup of espresso at a perfect drinking temperature. It’s easy to pump up to the right pressure, add water, put in pod, turn over, press button and it’s ready. It does tend to spurt and splutter at the end of the pour, so make sure it’s on a surface that can take some splashes. The unit itself is easy to clean – just rinse under a tap. It feels solidly built and is pretty heavy, so i wouldn’t take it backpacking. I now keep it in my office to make a nice post-lunch coffee.
