Wacaco MiniPresso Overview

The MiniPresso, as the name suggests, is a small, portable espresso machine that fits easily inside a rucksack, making it perfect for things like camping and backpacking.

There are 2 versions:

  • MiniPresso GR (uses ground coffee)
  • MiniPresso NS (uses Nespresso OriginalLine-compatible capsules)

It’s pretty easy to use once you become familiar with all its parts.

Pretty much all you do is put your coffee grounds in the filter at one side, put the hot water in at the other side and squeeze it through using the hand pump.

Because the MiniPresso uses hand-pump pressure to extract your shot, it doesn't reach the requisite 9 bars of pressure for true espresso.

But what it does make is very espresso-like, mostly lacking a rich crema.

But you aren't buying the MiniPresso to replace your home espresso machine. You're buying it for on-the-go convenience.

To that end, it's a fantastic compromise between cost, quality, and convenience.
