Product Description

Color: Black

The Handpresso Wild is a portable espresso machine that you can take virtually anywhere! Small and convenient, the Handpresso travels with you on vacation/business trips, hiking, boating - anywhere that you would like to enjoy a premium quality espresso, cappuccino, Americano, or latte! Light and durable, the Handpresso Wild can be stored easily in a drawer at work or in an apartment, in a backpack or even with camping gear. Handpresso Wild is a simple and compact Nomadic Espresso maker. All you need is some boiling water and any E.S.E Pod, which ensures premium quality in every cup and is easily acquired at coffee houses and grocery stores, no matter where you are. This also eliminates the mess associated with espresso making when on the go. Just pump up the Handpresso until the needle is in green area on the Pressure gauge; this says you're at 16 bars of pressure, now you can add hot water from a kettle or a thermo-insulated bottle. Place an E.S.E. pod in the filter, close the top and press the button to dispense the espresso! It's never been easier or required less clean up to make your espresso or cappuccinos until now! Due to the coffee grounds being kept in the E.S.E. pod you never have to worry about cleaning your Handpresso Wild because when your done brewing, you simply throw away your pod and rinse out the water receptacle. It really can't be any more hassle free than that!

I have had this product for a couple of months now. I have a rich history of trying to find something to take with me on the road to the improve hotel coffee situation. I started with a single cup Melitta electric drip coffee maker (remember those!), a Krups, a Velox, an electric Bialetti moka pot, an Aeropress, etc. I hate to go to a hotel, find a maker with coffee filters and think things are fine until 6 AM in the morning when you realize BOTH filters are de-caf! The hotel coffee makers range from OK to horrible! The coffee too!
I purchased the HandPresso out of desperation! I have a semi-professional espresso machine (VBM) and roast my own beans. I was not impressed with the ESE pods, but am VERY happy with them in the HandPresso! I like the idea I do not have to touch grounds in the morning like with the Aeropress. I carry a cup, some pods, and the HandPresso. I boil water (I am still looking for a very small electric boiling pot, but have an immersion coil), pump up the HandPresso, pre-heat my espresso cup and the water cup on the HandPresso, dump both, re-fill the HandPresso, pop in a pod, and in 25-seconds or so have a great shot of espresso! Got carried away one morning and had 4 in a row! WOW!
This device is extremely well made and and will probably last a long time. It will get field testing from me. Hope the TSA does not think it is some sort of nasty device in my bag!! The coffee pods give it away.

I've had my Handpresso for over six months now. Being Italian-born and raised, I live on a steady diet of espresso and need my fix at least twice a day. My workplace only has a small coffee stand which makes the worst espresso in the world, and there aren't any other coffee shops in a 2 miles radius, so brewing my own was the only way to satisfy my coffee needs.

I previously bought a AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker, which is advertised as an espresso maker but actually produces something closer to a french press drip coffee. Granted, it was cheap but that's pretty much the only good thing about it: it does not make a real espresso and is definitely more high-maintenance and labor-intensive, requiring filters and thorough cleaning after each use. I stopped using it after a couple of days because it was too much of a hassle and the espresso wasn't very good anyway.

The Handpresso on the other hand is simplicity itself. All you need is hot water and ESE coffee pods (I use 150 Lavazza Gran Crema Espresso Pods). I've been using it 2 o 3 times a day for six months and couldn't be happier. Yes, it's a bit expensive but being able to get a decent cup of espresso makes it worthy of the premium price tag for me.

The device is very sturdy and requires only minimal maintenance (just rinse it out) since the coffee and filters are self-contained in the ESE pods. If you have access to hot water, it takes less than a minute to prepare the Handpresso, stick the coffee pod in it, brew a shot of espresso, discard the pod and clean the machine.

Initial Impression
I was a bit skeptical that I could get a decent shot of espresso from a portable machine. And while it doesn't develop as much crema as my home machine (and I wouldn't expect it to considering that machine is over $1,500) - this thing is a GREAT way for me to get my espresso fix at work.

The build quality of the Handpresso is top notch, commensurate with its price (i.e. you get what you pay for). It should last quite a while. I was pleased to find that it comes with an extra O-ring gasket.

It's already paid for itself in savings - I don't buy espresso at Starbuck's anymore. It also IMHO brews a way more drinkable shot than Starbucks ever did - they really need to clean their machines and train their alleged "baristas".

For hot water, I use my office kitchen's hot water dispenser - and you really need very hot water to get a good shot, so take some care not to scald yourself. The only downside is I'm getting a lot of requests from co-workers to brew them a shot.

I loved this when I got it. I give the concept 5 stars. It was great. Then almost exactly two months after I bought it, it failed to pressurize. I went through the RMA process, and sent it back to Importikia. I received no further communication from Improtika, and five weeks later, I called. I left a message per day for about six days. No calls were returned. On the seventh day, someone accidentally picked up the phone. She was very nice and said that since I had been waiting so long, they would go ahead and send a new one. No problem, right? I got a call today from the same nice lady requesting a credit card she could bill $30 for return shipping. Wha? Clearly there was a mis-communication right? Overlooking the fact that postage between here and there would be about $7.50, this was a product that completely failed in under two months. If anything, you would think that they would say "oops, our bad", and get me a working one ASAP.

The math is pretty quick on this one. Let's say my experience is average, and I can expect my Handpresso to break every two months of use. Let's also assume based on my experience that between shipping time and repair time, Importika will take about 6 weeks to get the unit back to me. That would means in my first year of ownership, I will only have the Handpresso in my possession for 7.5 months, the other 5.5 months, it would be at Importika for repair. Warranty is a concern with such a high maintenance item, and according to the schedule, the Handpresso would break again about two weeks after the 1 year warranty expired, meaning I can expect 8 months of total lifetime use before the thing is a paperweight.
