It’s that time of year again, when we load up the car with the kids and our weekly supplies to venture out in the great outdoors. One of the challenges is how to produce a good cup of coffee when there is no access to electricity. Some may think that is a challenge that cannot be met; however...

With the Handpresso Wild you’ll never sacrifice quality for convenience. The 16 bar-pressure gauge ensures that your espresso is extracted at an optimum pressure. Simply hand pump the Handpresso until the indicator gauge reads in the green zone. This may take approximately 10-30 pumps, depending on your strength and speed.
E.S.E. Pod Capability
Made to work with E.S.E (Easy Serve Espresso) pods, you can choose from an array of coffees to use with your hand held espresso machine. Thanks to the E.S.E. labeling logo that is included on the coffee packaging, you will be able to easily recognize the pods that can be used with Handpresso Wild. More than a hundred coffee merchants make pods that meet the E.S.E standards, so finding your favorite coffee to brew with the Handpresso is never a problem.
The Handpresso Wild is extremely easy to use. Pump the machine like you are using a bicycle pump- this will bring the pressure in the internal chamber to the 16 bar mark. Once this is achieved, add hot water to the reservoir and close the lid. You will see that there is a black spout on the Handpresso, this is the dispensing end of the machine and should be held over your espresso cup. Add the ESE coffee pod and then attach and secure the portafilter lid. Once in place, press down the dispensing button located on the top left of the machine, your espresso will then flow from the spout to the cup. Always be sure to position that button over the top left of the tube to ensure espresso pours correctly. If you would like a shorter shot, press the button back into it’s original position from the bottom of the Handpresso and this will stop the flow of water.
The water reservoir holds 1.69 fluid ounces of water.
This system requires little maintenance, however there are a few things that you should know that will help you keep your Handpresso working its best. Never use alcohol or any detergent to clean this hand held machine, simply rinse Handpresso Wild under warm water. Please note: Descaling this machine is unnecessary. Do not use in the microwave.
