Portable Manual Espresso Maker: Handpresso Review

Coffeesphere, a blog shortlisted by the Market Inspector 2017 as one of the best coffee blogs carried out a thorough review of the portable espresso maker Handpresso Pump. Read it all here 

Coffeesphere's tips for using Handpresso's handheld coffee maker

1. You can use the end of the pump handle as a tamper. Tamping the grounds improves the quality of the extraction.

2. In order to get the best result in the cup, choose fresh coffee that you grind 3 minutes before brewing your espresso.

3. Preheat the water reservoir with hot water. Then fill the water tank once again with hot water and add the ground coffee or the pod. We can add that it's a good idea to preheat the cups, namely if they are made of glass or china.

4. Once the portafilter is on, flip the machine over and wait for at least 5 seconds before pressing the brew button down. This is to pre-wet, in order to saturate the coffee grounds before brewing. You'll get the best result this way.

Coffeesphere's conclusion about Handpresso's handheld coffee maker

"Very pleased with Handpresso from built quality to espresso quality... the Handpresso delivers decent quality espresso if you know how to use if correctly. As always, patience is key here when we talk about making a good espresso.

I would recommend Handpresso to anyone looking for a quality espresso on the go. I am sure you will be satisfied with the quality of espresso it delivers. ANYWHERE!"
