Someone should invent a light, portable espresso machine for one, ideal for travel, I said to a friend a few years ago. Voila. A French company has come out with a complete line of machines called Handpresso made for the car or outdoors. A coffee lover, I got the Wild Hybrid model in a compact black case complete with four unbreakable cups, and a thermo insulated stainless steel flask. All you do is add hot water and either ground coffee or ESE pods, press the pump, and you’re an instant barista.
The Wild Hybrid model alone which weighs 1.5 pounds is $129.99 or with all of the accoutrements in the case (3 pounds), $199.99, a great gift for a coffee lover. For more information and to purchase one, click here.
