Espresso on the go.
Over the course of our cycling careers, we've easily spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars on mid-ride coffees. Obviously, we like coffee on the go, and you can't beat espresso for a quick jolt to energize flagging legs and get you over that final hill before home. At a mere 8.6 inches long, the Wild hybrid at the heart of the Handpresso Outdoor Set is small enough to take in a jersey pocket for a mid-ride boost, or you can fit the whole set in a pannier for a trail-side café.
The set includes the Handpresso Wild hybrid handheld espresso press and thermally insulated, thermometer-topped flask for keeping the wet half of espresso's recipe at an appropriate temperature. The Wild earns the hybrid designation because it works with either loose espresso grounds or pre-loaded E.S.E. pods, which are little packets of espresso grounds that eliminate the mess and hassle of juggling beans, grounds, hot water, and the Wild itself.
The Wild pumps up like a bike pump, and can generate an impressive 232 PSI, well beyond the usual 116 to 145 PSI necessary for making espresso. Its water reservoir is 50 milliliters. To enjoy the fruits of your labor, Handpresso rounds the outdoor set off with four demitasse (which Handpresso claims are unbreakable), a small napkin, and a carrying case.
- Comes with Handpresso pump, thermos-insulated flask, 4 cups, napkin, and carrying case
- Works with loose espresso grounds and pre-loaded E.S.E. pods
- Approximate size: 10.2 x 8.3 x 3.7in

Whats' better than Starbucks?
I bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday, she is an espresso fanatic so it seemed like the perfect gift... and it was. She has made me espressos a few times with this handpresso as an afternoon pick me up and we both love it. It's easy to set up, easy to clean and the espresso comes out hot with a perfect layer of foam, it's by no means a machine quality espresso but is perfect for our needs and will make a great accompaniment to our next camping trip!

I'm with Lexi on this one, it is FANCYPANTS. Picked the set up as a gift for our realtor who is an outdoor coffee-loving fiend, and he's as stoked as they come. Super awesome and pretty compact for how many goodies are packed into the set- and you can just take out the handpresso if you're going more minimalist. Ended up picking up just the handpresso myself so I can speak to the ease of use. Again, just make sure you read the directions and you will be SET! Espresso comes out tasting mighty delish within seconds. Great for a gift- but beware, you'll end up purchasing one for yourself too.

Hard to imagine anything more delightful.
Espresso anywhere - really.
One of the coolest wedding or 'super special' gifts you could bequeath to a really, really loved one.
I'm a gadget hater (I don't have a TV and couldn't work a GoPro for the life of me) - but this thing is rad. Spend some time with the directions so you understand the process, it's worth it.
Once you get the hang of it you'll be pulling shots of delicious dark nectar in no time.
Super fun and satisfying to take the ritual of espresso out into nature without electricity or batteries. I have a plug in model at home and this is every bit as delicious, and takes approximately 1/17th the space.
Always a HUGE hit around the AM hours at camp. You can't go wrong. Period.
Everything you see here is included.
A luxe set to impress everyone you know and drink some seriously fine java in the backcountry.
Packing and Tamping
No joke espresso. You'll be impressed.

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.
