Pacewrote a review of Handpresso Outdoor Set on July 14, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
If you have a passion for the outdoors, a passion for espresso, and a passion for great design, the Handpresso Outdoor Set has your name all over it. Using a compact design reminiscent of a hand bike pump, the Handpresso achieves 16-bar pressure, allowing you to pull a top quality shot in just a few minutes, no batteries or electricity needed. I was skeptical at first, but it only took one espresso and to fall in love with the thing. Just pump the gauge up to 16 bar, fill with hot water, load the ground espresso coffee or an ESE pod, push the button, and watch in amazement as your cup fills with a perfect shot of espresso. Somehow, and this is really incredible, the shot is finished off with a perfect layer of crema on top. The Handpresso has won a stack of prestigious design awards and it's easy to understand why. In addition to the Handpresso pump, this kit includes a padded carry case, four classy cups, and a thermos flask to keep water piping hot and ready to go at a moments notice. This would also make a great gift for the coffee lover on your list.
