Overview

Just because you can't pack along your superautomatic on a camping trip doesn't mean you need to sacrifice your morning espresso. Make getting out into nature a little easier with the Wacaco Minipresso Portable Espresso Machine. Its satisfyingly simple design doesn't require anything other than coffee, hot water and a little old-fashioned manual labor for a rich shot of espresso, anywhere. It packs down to a sub-seven inch pill of java joy that easily fits in a packs water bottle holder. It even includes its own coffee scoop and tumbler for a (nearly) all-in-one trailblazing treat.

Features and Functionality

  • Backpacking Barista - The Minipresso weighs less than a pound and is small enough to pack nearly anywhere in your camping kit.
  • Back to Basics - Six simple pieces and no bells and whistles mean less can go wrong when you need your coffee most.
  • Pocket-size Pressure - The semiautomatic piston extracts espresso at 8 BAR just like a standard size espresso machine.
  • Versatile Dosing - A 2.3 ounce water tank and an 8 gram brew basket lets you pull single shots or lungos.
Pros
  • Compact Cafe - The Minipresso's small size and simple operation really is perfect for camping or traveling.
  • The Sweat of Your Brow - You'll never be stuck scrambling for batteries or CO2 canisters at the crack of dawn.
  • Personalized Pump - Since your hands are the espresso pump, you can pull as long or short of a shot as you want.
Cons
  • Fiddly Operation - Getting the Minipresso set up involves lots of little things that make it clunkier feeling than it really is. In particular, getting grounds into the teensy filter basket is a challenge in dexterity.
  • Coffee for One - The filter basket only holds 8 grams of grounds, so you'll have to prepare multiple single shots for any group bigger than one.
How Does it Compare?

The Minipresso is one of your only options for espresso at the top of a mountain or in the middle of the woods. That said, if you tend to stick to civilization there are better manual espresso machines with a bigger footprint.

Tips and Tricks
  • The bottom of the scoop fits perfectly inside the filter basket, but you really shouldn't tamp your grounds very tightly. It makes pumping much harder and puts unnecessary pressure on the machine's seals.
  • The water tank is a great place to store your tiny scoop and espresso grounds.

Still can't believe how well this worksReview by nico

My Sister-in Law & Brother bought this for my birthday. Their intention was I would take on backpacking trips. I stored it away with my gear waiting for the next trip. After a couple months I got anxious and took it out for a test spin at home.

I just used my regular ground coffee I had laying around. I literally couldn't believe what came out of this little pump. The espresso was really really good! Biggest mistake was I let my Wife try it. For the next month I was stuck making her an espresso every morning while she was getting ready for work.

I love coffee, but I'm not a snob. I'm sure there are critics who could pick apart the quality of the espresso compared to some machine which costs much more. Bottom-line, for the price and versatility this little device is a great buy. (Posted on 9/9/2017)
