Handpresso HPWILD Wild 16-Bar Hand-Pump Espresso Machine


I need a nice strong espresso coffee in the morning! However, I am constantly traveling because of my job. Unfortunately, through my many road trips I have learned that Hotel coffee stinks! Therefore, I needed to find an espresso machine that was small, portable, and actually made good coffee.


(No easy feat) After scouring the internet I came upon the Handpresso HPWILD Wild 16-Bar Hand-Pump Espresso Machine. The reviews were good and it cost a reasonable price ($100.00). So I decided to give it a shot. (Pun intended) I was skeptical when I purchased this espresso machine; yet, my fears faded away very quickly after it arrived.

This machine was built wonderfully. It is small, compact, easy to use, and best of all makes an espresso that tastes one thousand times better than any hotel’s complimentary coffee. However, as to be expected with a portable machine, the coffee does not taste as good as the larger and more expensive stationary machines.

I would say the crème you get with the Handpresso HPWILD Wild 16-Bar Hand-Pump Espresso Machine is about fifty percent of what you would get from a traditional espresso maker. Nevertheless, the Handpresso is a life-saver for anyone who travels or enjoys the outdoors. I would highly recommend it to anyone in that crowd. It also can be very handy for those of you who have a bad espresso maker at work. The price may be a little high, but over the long run this little machine will more than pay for itself.

Pros
- Small
- Efficient

Cons
- Less crème efficiency than traditional espresso maker
- A little expensive
