One of the newer brewing products to cross our paths, the Wacaco MiniPresso produces a shockingly good cup of coffee for a device of its size and simplicity.
With a built in hand pump, there's no need for gas or external power and (as the pump is semi-automatic) there's no need to work too hard, either! With the MiniPresso, all you need is coffee, hot water and less than five minutes.
This tiny little legend weighs in at 360g and is 17.5cm long; perfect for travellers, campers and the otherwise space conscious. It's well made and durable, with a 70ml water tank and pump pressure of up to 8 bar. In testing, we've gotten great results using 8-9g of espresso-roasted coffee (see what's in season <a="http: www.padrecoffee.com.au="" ste="" shop.php?cpath="1_28"here" <="" a="">) freshly ground at the coarse end of an espresso setting. The MiniPresso is a breeze to use, as simple as filling and inserting the espresso basket, topping up the water chamber and then gradually building pressure via the pump to brew. For best results, we recommend thoroughly pre-heating the MiniPresso with hot water before you brew, and experimenting with dose and grind once you've got the hang of brewing to get your coffee tasting right.
