Well, we are fortunate enough to have a Handpresso Wild in for review and I thought I would offer a few pictures of the coolest little espresso gadget I have ever seen. The Handpresso is a hand-pump espresso maker that allows you to pump up the handle to 16 bar, add hot water and an ESE Espresso pod to the brewing chamber flip the switch and go. The result is a freshly brewed authentic tasting espresso wherever you can access hot water.
Four Easy Steps: 1) Pump the handle to get 16 bar, 2) Add Hot Water, 3) Add an ESE Pod, 4) Press the brew button to get your Espresso.
The unit comes well packed and secure from the maker in France. "Well Packed" in an understatement. I mean Apple could learn a thing or two from Handpresso. The Handpresso comes packed in a box that I would say is more like a presentation quality box that a fine Cognac would come in.
The Handpresso in a nice inner case. Slide the overbox off to find a textured, inner, heavy weight case.
Slide open the inner case that slides open to reveal its contents the foam packing.
Pull away the instruction manuals and the foam packing to see the Handpresso seated safely in its cocoon.
The water chamber unscrews where you insert the ESE pod and pour in the hot water.
On the top side you have 1) The water reservoir that holds 50mls, 2) The pressure gauge 16 bar (over 200PSI), and 3) The release or brew button.
With the pump handle extended; the Handpresso is only a little more than a foot long.
Over the next couple of weeks, we'll be brining the Handpresso along to a few places so that we bring espresso convenience to the masses. The first stop is going to be work, where the office coffee will be replaced with a nice shot of espresso every now and then.
