Handpresso Auto - Mobile Espresso Machine

The Handpresso Auto is a great mobile espresso machine that you can take with you in the car. Have an espresso whenever you are feeling tired or wanting a jolt of energy. Have an espresso on long car trips and even entertain guests in your vehicle.

This espresso machine is powered by the 12v cigarette outlet/power adapter that most cars have. With it's simple to use instructions, this espresso machine can be the perfect commuter device.

Handpresso Auto Espresso Machine

Handpresso Auto is a very unique espresso machine. Powered by your power outlet in your car, this device can create a hot cup for you in minutes. Simply plug in the 12v power, unscrew the cap, fill up with water (there are water level indicators that will help prevent from overfill), place the approved espresso pod on top, and connect the cap to the top again. Once everything is ready, press the power button and in about 2 minutes and 3 beeps later, the espresso should be ready. Simply press the cup looking symbol and hold upside down. This will allow the water and the espresso pod to mix and create your wonderful delicious beverage.

The Handpresso Auto uses a 16 bar pressure system to deliver the high quality espresso from the machine to your cup. With little instructions, this device can be used by just about everyone and can keep a long ride lively instead of everyone becoming tired, or the repeated stops for a caffeinated beverage.

The water capacity for this espresso device is 1.79 fl oz and is good for one small cup. Using while driving is not recommneded as you should use both hands while preparing your drink and pouring. Pull over or park somewhere when you are ready to use this device, it only takes a few minutes and after, you can be on your way.

You must use approved espresso pods called E.S.E Pods and can be found online. We used the Gaggia espresso pods that were recommended from Handpresso. .I have looked in store, but I have not been able to find them.

Once the device has used the espresso pod, disconnect the top cap, throw away the used pod, and replace with a new pod and add water for the next drink.

I would love to find a reuseable espresso pod for this device and if anyone has any suggestions, please let us know in the comments below.
