The Handpresso WILD
The Handpresso Wild is the world’s first portable human-powered espresso machine. A unique product invented in France by Henrik Nielsen, a true coffee lover. It requires no electricity and no stove. It uses a simple manual pumping system. All you need is hot water which you can carry along in an insulated thermos and E.S.E. coffee pods. This portable espresso brewer is a no mess, no fuss, travel companion which allows you to brew fresh espresso anywhere.
Enjoy Premium Quality Espresso Anywhere
Giving a whole new meaning to “Coffee to go,” the Handpresso Wild lets you enjoy premium quality espresso anytime, anywhere. Manufactured in France by Handpresso SARL, the Handpresso Wild espresso machine provides premium quality espresso for the nomadic espresso connoisseur. Designed to work with E.S.E (Easy Serve Espresso) pods, you can now enjoy your favourite brand of coffee to brew in your hand held espresso machine. Think of the possibilities – while hiking, camping, boating, offices, dorms, small apartments – the possibilities are just endless. Now you can enjoy premium quality espresso – anywhere, anytime!
It’s so easy! Simply pump the machine to 16 bar, add hot water from a kettle or a thermo insulated bottle, then put in your favourite E.S.E. pod. Push the button, and voila! A great-tasting espresso with a rich, foamy crema.
The Handpresso Wild is available in a glossy black finish or vibrant red for a slight up charge.
Full 16 BAR Pressure
With the Handpresso Wild you’ll never sacrifice quality for convenience. The 16 bar pressure gauge ensures that your espresso is extracted at the optimal pressure. Simply hand pump the Handpresso until the indicator gauge reaches the green ready zone. This may take approximately 10-30 pumps, depending on your strength and speed.
Single or Double Shots
The water reservoir holds a maximum of 1.69 fluid ounces (50 ml) of hot water allowing you to create a single or double shot of espresso as you please.
E.S.E. Pod Capability or Ground Coffee
Designed to work with E.S.E pods (Easy Serve Espresso), you can choose from an array of coffees to use with your Handpresso. Simply look for the E.S.E. labeling logo to easily recognize pods that are compatible with the Handpresso Wild. With hundreds of coffee merchants now offering pods that meet the E.S.E standards, finding your favorite coffee to brew with the Handpresso is easy.
The Handpresso Wild is also available in the DomePod version for die-hard baristas who want to prepare the freshest cup of espresso while on the go using their favourite ground coffee. A special carrying case is also available to transport up to three perfectly filled and tamped pods ready for use when you are.
Easy To Use
The Handpresso Wild is extremely easy to use. Simply pump the machine like you would a bicycle pump to bring the pressure in the internal chamber to the 16 bar mark denoted by the green indicator. Then, add some hot water to the reservoir, insert your favourite coffee pod and attach the black Portafilter. Position the spout over your espresso cup and press down on the dispensing button to allow espresso to flow from the spout directly into to the cup.
Help The Planet
The Handpresso reinforces traditional values of energy consciousness and durability. Whether you enjoy coffee inside or outside now you can save energy by not leaving your big power-hungry espresso machine in stand-by mode all the time. The Handpresso is constructed from selected environmentally-friendly and durable materials and components so it’s designed to last a long time.
Virtually Maintenance Free
This system requires very little maintenance, however there are a few things that you should know that will help you keep your Handpresso working in optimal condition. Never use alcohol or detergent to clean the hand held mechanism or components, simply rinse the Handpresso Wild under warm water only after each use. Lubrication of rubber components with olive oil will prevent drying and cracking and ensure an airtight seal, although replacement of the rubber O-ring may be required after prolonged use, approximately after 600 shots. DESCALING IS NOT NECESSARY. NEVER USE THE HANDPRESSO IN A MICROWAVE. DO NOT DROP THE UNIT as this may damage the internal pressure chamber.
