Product Description

Color: Black

With the Handpresso Wild Hybrid, you may vary the coffee experience as inspiration and weather dictates. Either you choose ground espresso coffee and become a Barista or you insert the E.S.E. adapter and enjoy the E.S.E. pods' ease of use. Not only is the Wild hybrid versatile, but the quality is superb. You generate a 16-bar pressure as with a bicycle pump, add hot water (from a kettle or a thermo flask), espresso coffee (ground coffee or E.S.E. pods) and prepare a high quality espresso. Light and durable, the Handpresso Wild Hybrid can be stored easily in a drawer, backpack or with camping gear. Although cleanup is still a breeze, there are a few rules you'll want to follow to keep your Handpresso Wild Hybrid in top shape. Do not use alcohol or detergents to clean the machine and descaling is unnecessary. Just like the Handpresso Domepod, the Handpresso Wild Hybrid is not microwave safe.

Bottom line - This device is fantastic for anyone looking to make espresso on the go! While this will not truly replace expensive home espresso makers, make no mistake, the Handpresso Wild Hybrid can make decent espresso, but only when you take the time to use it properly. I've used the Handpresso Wild Hybrid twice a day for the past month while I've been on the road. The results the Handpresso gave me at first were less than stellar but after learning a few lessons I am now very happy with the quality of espresso it produces. That being said, I never expected this device to make espresso on par with a $500 - $1000 espresso machine. If you do, you will be disappointed. I bought the Handpresso primarily for convenience when traveling, not as a replacement for a real espresso machine. Just follow the below tips, adjust your expectations, and you will be very happy with your $125 investment:

1. Use fresh beans and a good grinder. Like any espresso machine, the freshness of your beans and quality of your grinder are essential to generating good espresso. If you're on the go, just bring along a good manual grinder like the Porlex Mini or the Hario Skerton. Experiment with the grind until you find a setting that gives you about 20-30 sec. of extraction. The intense filter is also unnecessary (not to mention overpriced) when using a proper espresso grind setting. I cannot speak for its performance when using ESE pods since I have only used it with freshly ground coffee in the domepod. However, with fresh beans and a proper grind setting, you will get real espresso with decent crema using the domepod. Neglecting to use these will result in a shot similar to a moka pot's with fast extraction and no crema.

2. Always firmly tamp the grinds in the domepod.

Although I love this product, I had to deduct one star because it has two major flaws: 1) the rubberized buttons, top and bottom of the plunger, snap off rather easily AND 2) eventually, the unit will fail if you use it primarily with ground coffee (not pods).

I am on my 4th unit because I have had all of the above occur. First two I RMA'd through the importer, the third and fourth I RMA'd through the manufacturer. I recommend the latter as it saves you on both return shipping fees and a $16 charge for replacement/shipping/handling.

As I stated, I love this little machine when it is working. When done right, you would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between a shot pulled on this unit and one from a commercial machine, guaranteed. For reference, I have both a commercial grinder and commercial HX espresso machine on my kitchen counter.

I love my espresso so much I packed this baby on a 10 day backpacking trip! It's worth it's weight in my pack without question. Just be prepared to RMA it about every 7-9 mo if you, like me, will be using it 2x daily, 3x week with ground coffee. According to the manufacturer the grounds will eventually gum up the valve. What you will notice is that one day you will pump it up but not be able to release the pressure. There is a certain amount of backflush/backpressure that you see coming from the plunger at the end of the extraction process--when you have expelled 95-97% of the pressure and there is no more coffee coming out--and you reset the plunger. You will also notice at times some leakage from there of the hot water that you place in the basin prior to extraction. My guess is eventually that is how the valve eventually fails.

I will start by saying that I did not purchase this through Amazon. However I wanted to share my experiences with this espresso maker.

I've only been using it for a couple of days, but I've found it to be easy to use and that it produces and very nice cup of espresso. I got it to use at work as we are not allowed to have any sort of heating element at our desk (read coffee pot or K-cup machine) and to be honest, the coffee in the Cafeteria is pretty mediocre.

Pro's:
--It's not hard to pump up to the proper pressure. I was worried about it, but I've never had a problem considering the pressures that you're reaching (around 230 psi).
--It's nice and compact.
--The cover is easy to get on and off
--You can either use your own coffee in the supplied filter or you can use pre-packaged espresso pods (available from a wide variety of companies

Cons:
--Tamping the filter can be a little messy (I'm doing it at my desk at work.) If you're in a kitchen its not really going to be an issue
--I wish the button to start the flow of water was a little more protected as I've been worried about triggering it accidentally. I've not done this yet, but maybe future versions could have a shield protecting the button.

In my opinion the pro's far outweigh and possible cons, which is why I give it 5 stars. In spite of a few little things I may have designed differently, I absolutely love it. It's easy to use and makes a very nice espresso.

I would definitely, wholeheartedly recommend this unit.

P.S. I'd also look at getting the optional thermos. It has an internal thermometer and shows you on the cap if your water is still hot enough to make a good up of espresso. Quite a nice idea on the manufacturer's part.
