For Those Who Can’t Sit Still

If you’re on the go and still want delicious espresso shots without going to the local café, or if you want espresso while camping, miles away from any café, the MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker might be the answer to your prayers. Innovative and tech-savvy, the MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker is a great for those who can’t sit still—if you want your coffee even in the middle of a hike or on the road, this portable little espresso maker is a must-have item.

Don’t lug around a huge coffee system or wait until you get home to make rich, delicious espresso: the MiniPresso goes wherever you go. At a super-tiny 6.9 x 2.8 x 2.4 inches and weighing less than a pound, the MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker can easily be tucked into a backpack or carry on bag.

A technologically savvy, small design makes this portable espresso maker ergonomic and environmentally friendly: it doesn’t run on electricity, batteries, or anything like a conventional coffee maker: just a squeeze of the hand creates the perfect shot. Convenient and chic, this little tool can be a lifesaver.

Features

The MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker is great for those one-shot mornings, or any time of day. All you need is hot water, a little ground espresso and the MiniPresso—no need to mess with filters or anything else—your shot is ready in a matter of minutes.

Just disassemble the MiniPresso, fill with enough ground espresso for one shot, and press with hot water—no need to tamp your shot, the MiniPresso does it for you: you’ll be able to have a fresh, delicious shot of espresso anytime, anywhere.

Make one shot at a time, and four or more shots will take about the same time to make a cup of coffee in a French press. The MiniPresso is great for long road trips, camping or other outdoor activities—its there wherever you are.

If you’re just looking to create a consistent, delicious shot of espresso in a pinch, the MiniPresso is a great tool for that, but if you’re looking to create more elaborate drinks, a separate milk steamer may be required. This tool is best for travel and other adventures.
