Have you ever ordered something, then forgot you ordered it? Yeah. I can’t remember where I saw the Minipresso but after watching the video, I placed a preorder. Which I forgot about until an email came from PayPal a few weeks ago saying that an invoice had been raised. Apparently I paid for it (because the payment was made from my card, not my bank account) but I thought that I hadn’t so when I received the shipping notification, I assumed it was an automatic thing, and when the box appeared on my doorstep, I was a little worried!
The Minipresso is a way to make a single espresso shot, wherever you are. You just fill the relevant bit with coffee grounds (or you can get one that allows you to use Tchibo or Caffitaly capsules for even less fuss), fill the bottom reservoir with boiling water, screw it all together, undo the pump part, flip it upside down and start pumping! This forces the water through the grounds at the right pressure and in under a minute, you end up with a shot of delicious coffee. It even comes with its own built in cup for those “emergencies” when you can’t find your little espresso cups.
The Minipresso cost $39, plus $14.90 shipping to the UK, which in total worked out to be £36.70. While a Moka Pot* will be cheaper and able to make more cups at once, I like the Minipresso for the ease and ability to take it with me to work for emergency caffeine shots!
I LOVE ESPRESSO :)
Oh my god, I need this!

i just rec mine today, and tried a shot.
to be honest, consider the price that i paid, i am very pleased.
just need to try a feel more times, see the quality of the thing. because i saw a review on the official website says it has broken after using 10 times.
a bit worried.
but still, i would say yes to this product.
so fresh beans+ porlex mini+ minipresso/aeropress= coffee everywhere.
