It does take a bit of time to microwave the water, pump the Handpresso to recommended pressure (reminds me of my Trek bicycle pump), extract, then repeat. However, for espresso lovers that can't be without their morning or afternoon shot, it fits the bill. I used the ESE pod based Handpresso the other would be ha whole lot of work for a shot.
