I bought this as a birthday gift for my wife because she's a Cuban born coffee snob that is very particular about her espresso and I thought this would make a great gift. We just got back to Miami from a week long trip to North Carolina and since we decided to drive straight through (a 12 hour trip) with as little stops as possible, this was the perfect accessory to take along.

To begin with, when you hold this little guy in your hand, you definitely get the feeling of quality right from the start. It's weight and compact size (just right for your hand and perfect for a cup holder) feels like it was made for a road trip. The attached 12 volt cord fits snuggly around the device and has a convenient slot to hold the plug while not in use but is long enough to catch any of the 3 outlets in our car.

Although we got this back in May, we never used it because we couldn't find a retail store that sold the E.S.E. pods because Starbuck's discontinued selling them (Thanks for nothin', Starbuck's!) and we finally had to order some online the week before our trip. We ordered these to try out and I'm happy to report we're very pleased with the choice.

About 3 hours into our drive I told the wife to make me a sandwich... Just kidding (she had pre-made the sandwiches). I asked her to try out the Handpresso which she had forgotten about and she proceeded to unpack it and read up on it's use. At this point, I need to explain that although Debbie was born a brunette, she's really a blonde at heart and has issues with instructions. Let's leave it at that.

I'd had my eye on the Handpresso auto ever since I heard about it. When I got a job where it was impossible to get espresso, my mind was made up. The handpresso is sturdy and made of high quality materials and yet it's very portable and light. It seems quite durable.

Surprisingly enough, the espresso it produces is very good considering it comes from such a compact machine that uses pods (it's certainly better than Starsucks or any vending machine junk). While you shouldn't expect a 100% real crema from the handpresso, the coffee it makes is nearly identical in taste to the one I get at home with my "real" espresso maker. The best way to get the thickest possible crema is to stop brewing right before the bubbles start coming out (you can tell because the coffee flow will slow down considerably before the bubbles form). This little trick will give you the "creamiest" possible espresso on this machine.

I use Kimbo Espresso Napoletano pods on mine, which will give you an excellent and authentic Neapolitan espresso: rich and creamy, yet not acidic or burned tasting. The Handpresso is very easy to use and requires minimal cleanup. The "trickiest" part of its operation is learning just how much water to put in it, which doesn't take that long to figure out.

And that brings me to my only minor criticism: the 53 ml (1.8 fl. oz) water reservoir capacity is a bit small for the average espresso, which is normally between 2.5 and 3 fl. oz. They could easily have increased the water capacity a bit, but I'm afraid perfection is not of this world. Of course, you can always make yourself another espresso if one doesn't do it for you! Maybe in the future they'll come up with another version of the handpresso which makes 2 espressos at a time.

Was very surprised at how good my shot of espresso tasted. With the right ese pods you can pull a shot that is better than what you get from Sbucks. Don't buy the ac to dc wall adapter, none of them have enough amps to power a 140 watt appliance.

While on a trip through 12 states visiting National Parks, we often had an urge to sip an espresso. Searching for a coffee bar in Google Maps sometimes suggested a bar over 120 miles away. Moreover, we prefer the taste of Italian Illy, Lavazza, or Segafredo coffees over the burnt espresso coffee taste found at Starbucks.

Knowing the excellent Handpresso Wild Hybrid espresso machine, we were excited to see a video of Handpresso's new concept - a machine that incorporates an electric pump and a water heater nicely contained in a package full of safety features that may be used in a car.

The Wild Hybrid works with both ground coffee and ESE Pods; however, you have to have a way to boil water. Also the pump is manual, requiring about a minute or two of pumping to get to the right pressure.

The Handpresso Auto on the other hand is really simple to use. Remove the portafilter, fill with water (use bottled water) using an elegant system of dots to get the correct amount, place an ESE pod, and close the portafilter. Place the Handpresso Auto in the cup-holder of your car, unwrap the cord and pug it into a 12-volt receptacle. Please make sure that your car is parked and that the engine is running. With the engine off, the Handpresso Auto will not operate sensing voltage lower than the required 12V.

Press the Start button and the pump will come on for about a minute. Observe the thermometer gauge and wait for three beeps. Unplug the machine, turn it upside down positioning the opening of the portafilter over an espresso cup. Press the Brew button and enjoy your espresso.

Fantastic!

Added November 11, 2013: The machine did not work in my 2010 F-150 when plugged into the accessory socket with the engine running; however, it works perfectly when plugged into the cigar lighter socket with the engine running. To use it when at a motel, get the Schumacher 1216 12V 15 Amp Power Converter from Amazon. It costs $49.
