Whether it's long coffee, short coffee, espresso, cappuccino or coffee with milk, coffee is Number 1 among cold and hot drinks and the figures are there to prove it. Coffee is traditionally drunk at home, at work and in coffee shops.
Real espresso or creamy coffee can also be prepared in the car with Handpresso 12v coffee makers. No need to stop at rest areas on the mortoway, you prepare a coffee or espresso whenever you want with Handcoffee Auto or Handpresso Auto Capsule.
In any case, world coffee consumption is steadily increasing, with vending machines, traditional coffee makers and Handpresso portable coffee machines. Moreover, countries that traditionally drink tea now also offer coffee, and even espresso.
Portioned coffee in all its forms is popular, whether in soft or stiff pods or capsules. Extracted at a pressure of 16 bars, espressos have a lower caffeine content than filter coffee, are less risky for the heart and are even good for your health.
Coffee consumption is increasing in all countries throughout the world. Asian countries such as Japan and China also have an increasing number of coffee drinkers.
