Okay, so a thorough cleaning of the unit is awful. The top where the coffee exists is so difficult and laborious to take apart and put back together that you will be inclined to never clean it that thoroughly! And that would be a mistake, because coffee residue builds up inside there and can mold!
This device is a cool idea, and I loved it while it worked. But they really need to reconsider the design and make it more user serviceable. I cannot recommend this if you like to frequently make espresso shots. You are probably better off buying a small machine then spending $50 on this thing.
Some folks probably won't like having to pump and "work" this much for coffee, but convenience in form factor and size are the strongest attributes this unit has to offer. Easy to clean and store away with the retractable priming handle.
My only gripe with this is the drink cup is just pressed in and can knocked off easily while the water reserve cup is nicely twisted on with locking detents.
I have a "tiny living" situation and was looking for a space-saving espresso machine and stumbled upon this one. After I learned the hard way not to overfill the water/coffee and not to tamp the grounds, I developed a pretty good rhythm for quickly making yummy longshots. I drink anywhere from 3 to 6 of them a day!
I don't buy particularly nice coffee, just Costco-in-a-can, which I then grind finer. Clean up is a breeze, and it has a pretty small footprint on my counter.
I have easily made at least 50 to 60 shots in the few weeks I've had this, and it seems to be holding up well! It dribbles a little water here and there through the process, but that's probably me going a little faster than I should.
Some may not like that it doesn't appear to be BPA free, but with coffee this decadent I cannot begin to complain! Longshots with this seem to be almost 1/3 crema if that is important to you... It is to me! I can't recommend this highly enough, but especially if you go to their website and pickup the larger 100ml tank, which is about 25 dollars.
All that being said, if you use the scoop to dump the grounds into the filter without tamping, you will have a great experience. The espresso has decent body and crema for a totally manual brewing method. Its very easy to travel with, and you can brew a shot in only a few seconds longer than it takes to boil the water. Sure, it only really brews 1 to 1.5 shots, but it is easy enough to repeat the process. I would buy this product again.
Operation is simple, and works as follows:
1) Disassemble entire device
2) Fill scoop, place filter basket on top, and turn over. Tap a few times to drop all grounds.
3) Remove scoop. Tap filter basket on counter to level the contents.
4) Place filter basket in grooves on housing, and screw on the nozzle-end of the minipresso.
5) Fill the water reservoir up to the line with boiling water. Carefully screw onto the bottom of the pump housing.
6) Invert minipresso, place over pre-heated espresso cup, and pump slowly.
7) Pressure will build. As the very first spurt of espresso is dispensed, I wait about 10 seconds and then continue pumping at a steady pace until pressure releases and espresso stops dispensing.
Standard clean-up involves carefully disassembling the device and rinsing each component with fresh water. There is no way to disassemble the nozzle end, so it will retain some amount of water. The best way I have found to flush this out is by pumping fresh water through. The minipresso does not like to pump if it cannot build pressure, so I stuff the filter basket with paper towels to provide resistance and then follow the directions above as if you were brewing. It is also useful to occasionally follow this process with vinegar (and then a few cycles of water) to descale the pump and nozzle.
-Quick, easy shot of espresso
-Impressive body/taste/crema for an inexpensive device
-Can be damaged if espresso is tamped
-It would be nice if the nozzle could be disassembled to allow for a more thorough cleaning
-Only makes about 1-1.5 shots at a time
If you are looking for an inexpensive way to make a quick shot of espresso, this is a great way to get it done. Small enough to fit in any bag, easy enough to operate and clean, and very consistent results. If you generally need more than 1-2 shots at a time or are interested in an increased level of control, you would probably find it easier to just invest in an entry-level pump-driven machine.

My only concern is cleaning it. The instructions say to just rinse and use the brush to clean it. It rinses easily but I feel like I will never get all of the water and coffee out of the pump and filter. I can clean and dry it fully but if I shake it, water still comes out. Not sure if it will get mildew or cause issues in the long run.
I'll update with any changes!
Each time I've finished making my coffee, I make sure I give the device a run through with no grinds and just hot water, to ensure no coffee water is left in the device. I dismantle it, pump out any excess water in the middle section, vigorously shake the outlet section free of water and leave it dismantled to dry off until next use. But this routine doesn't work when making coffee for 2 people or when making 2 coffees close together.
It's quite disappointing as I really like this device and it does produce a good coffee. The first shot is delicious, but unfortunately isn't consistent with a second coffee:(
