Handpresso: Love It or Hate It?

I'm one of those people who gets a double shot of espresso each and every morning. Naturally, I got super excited when I saw this handy little gadget, the Handpresso. It's a hand-held contraption that produces tasty espresso anywhere, anytime. After watching the video, I imagined myself toting one in my oversized handbag. I could offer passengers waiting for the bus little glasses of espresso! Only when I read the fine print — it needs hot water to function — did I realize this might not be so cool. Still the luxurious thought of espresso anywhere, anytime entices me. What do you think? Is the Handpresso great or destined for a doomed fate?

You might as well make the expresso and put it in the thermos! Silly. This is the easiest way to make expresso (it might work on a campfire also).

does it come with glasses too?! or do you need to bring mugs while hiking too?

Hmm, I would have to try it myself. I have big doubts that it actually pulls shots as nice as they look in the video. The promotional videos for the cheapy machines make them look nice, too.

I would have just brought a pepsi up the darn mountaintop :ROTFL: Easier, faster, and you can keep walking while drinking if you want too :)

in essence i love this contraption. it's small and convenient. i don't think i'd taking it hiking but does look like a big help in the morning! i don't like the fact that you have to purchase the espresso filters. i would rather if one could use fresh ground beans instead. also at about $150 i think i would be more likely to pay just more that double for a lower-end counter top machine with steam wand.
