Handpresso Available in the US - Still Great

Handpresso Wild, the uber-cool Bike Pump looking portable espresso brewer is now available in the US allowing folks on this side of the Atlantic to enjoy this Euro originated brewer without the hassle of overseas ordering. We enjoyed getting our Handpresso in January, covering it with an Unboxing of the Handpresso, and then a First Impressions post quickly after that.

Still Great
I continue to use the Handpresso on a regular basis at work, and really think that it's a great way to enjoy espresso away from the coffee shop or my army of brewers at home. I get a fair amount of strange looks, but the little break is a great way to enjoy an indulgent little pick-me-up in the afternoon. I usually hit the office coffee maker for some hot water to pre-heat the cup, and Handpresso reservoir to make sure I get a good shot. The office brewer does not put out terribly hot water, so I need to nurse out every bit of heat that I can before brewing. I pour out the pre-heat water, add the brew water, the pod and I am ready to go.

I have been using a few different pods, especially some of my favorites like the Lavazza Grand Crema and the Mokarabia Strong ESE Pods.

The $149 is not a cheap price to pay for such an indulgence, but you get what you pay for, and in this instance, it's a very solidly built unit. Better to pay the price for something that will work well and last, versus paying a cheap price and having the unit fall apart.

The whole thing comes in at over a pound, and is made of aluminum, with a high quality feel and action. It comes with an extra "o" ring, but in the couple of months I have been using it, I haven't seen any issues.

So, while it might be great for camping, it is also a great brewer for a quick brew at work, or anywhere else good coffee is scarce.
