Being able to froth milk on the go is a nice touch. But the reality is more lukewarm frothed-ish milk. It takes a long time to do and your milk is cooling down the whole time. Whether you’re travelling, camping or simply want to enjoy a cup of coffee at your desk, then a single serve coffee machine is perfect for you. Can I use my own coffee grounds in a single serve coffee maker? If you wantportabilityand milk foamingcapability, as well as the option to use pods without buying an add-on, then this will do very nicely for you. The Wacaco Picopresso costs more than many other portable espresso machines, including the brand’s older models. However, that extra expense is worth it for the thoughtfully designed, capable machine that pulls authentic espresso. If you can’t bear the thought of missing your morning latte, even when you’re out of town, or on a camping trip, the Staresso Portable Espresso Maker is the machine for you. Firstly, thanks to a handy froth enhancing adaptor, this portable espresso machine is the only one that froths milk, as well as pulls the espresso. Secondly, Staresso also works with capsules, for even greater variety.

We heated some water, ground some coffee beans, and we were already halfway done. The Nanopresso comes with a coffee scoop that also serves a tamper. Once you unscrew the filter basket, pull out the filter. Add coffee to the coffee filter, and tamp it with the bottom of the scoop. Screw the filter basket onto the Nanopresso. So, to sum up our Staresso review: a great all-round handheld espresso maker that makes quality coffee. Many speciality coffee lovers drink their coffee as espresso. Of course, to make great espresso, you need a great espresso machine. This type of equipment may be available at home, at the office or at a café, but on the road, an espresso machine is pretty impractical! With the Nanopresso, Wacaco has finally given espresso-lovers a great way to enjoy their beloved beverage while out and about.The Mirage’s 53mm pressurized double filter basket offers plenty of room for error in grind size, making it a solid beginner-friendly option. This can be done by choosing different pod varieties, selecting specific brew settings, or adjusting the water-to-coffee ratio if the machine allows customisation. Staressoclaim their espresso makes creates between 15 and 20 Bar of pressure, and I’m sure it theoretically can. But in reality, you’re getting a smidge north of 15 bar. This creates a good espresso, but not a great espresso. Thanks Simon! I’m using the Barrista Kit, works the same. Extremely tamped, (presumably) “fine” grind on the 1Presso Mini Grinder, and a steady, lovely stream. While we may be satisfied, it’s never fully satisfied, is it? Good suggestion to tinker with grind until approaching the edge of drip-drip/bitter-slow extraction is reached. Then either configure that special ‘spot’ varying tamping and/or grind. And, I imagine, removing/replacing the pressure piece. Overall, the Nanopresso is less mess and less fiddling around. It’s also more forgiving if you’re new to espresso making. Sure, the espresso won’t be as good, but it’s a solid contender.

If you’re on the road a lot, studying in libraries or merely changing offices regularly throughout the day, the Nanopresso was a neat gadget that’s used with minimal fuss. All you need is access to hot water and some kind of stable surface to set everything up. Once I learn “where the edge is”, I will start using the Barrista Kit, also bought strictly on your recommendation. The Nanopresso, with no attachments, only pulls a single shot of espresso. If you want to make double shots, you need to buy the Barista kit as an add-on. Even with this, it’s still cheaper than the Picopresso though.Cleaning procedures may vary by model, so it's essential to refer to the manufacturer's instructions. I guess it’s not what am I doing wrong. It’s what am I doing right- in as much as the expected fiddling with grind, tamping, quantity, etc seems unnecessary. I’m one of those who, if I can’t go too far (to cause brewing problems), I’m afraid I haven’t gone far enough (to get the best quality). Should I be grateful, let well enough alone? Or depressurize to see what happens, try an even finer grind, or….? The Nanopresso is actually the successor to the Minipresso, a very popular portable coffee maker in its own right. Having tried both versions, we feel that with this latest portable espresso maker, Wacaco has created the best device an espresso-lover could hope for in the absence of a real espresso machine.

Well, let’s get one thing straight from the beginning. The AeroPress isn’t an espresso maker. What do I mean?Well, it doesn’t exert enough pressure to technically make espresso. Instead, you will get a halfway house between true espresso and drip coffee. But that halfway house is pretty darn good coffee. To get the best results, you need a full setup including a kettle, quality hand grinder, and coffee scale. Materials: Certain materials are better at fending off corrosion and bacteria than others, brass, stainless steel and aluminium being the top three. Heat your Water: This will need to be done separately (for a portable coffee maker that heats water, your best bet is a battery-powered machine). The Mirage is the 3rd generation of Staresso portable espresso makers. The mechanics are the same, but they have gone bigger (9.5 inches tall). But, is bigger better?

Pre-heat the entire device, not just the chamber, by filling it with boiling water for a few minutes with the lid on. Then use the pump to push the water through. This helps loosen the pump but you’ll need to act fast to pull your espresso whilst everything is still warm. On the plus side, the glass cup fits neatly inside the compact espresso coffee maker. The benefit of this is that you won’t end up with espresso everywhere. Some pre-grounds espresso blends are a little bit too fine for the Nanopresso. I got a bag of Costa grinds and they were a little on the fine side. It’s been a while since I bought pre-ground but if I remember correctly the Lavazza espresso is ground just right. If you really want to persist with the Illy ground coffee you could either try adding 15g instead of 16g that might help. You’ll notice that the portafilter does actually tamp the coffee deeper once it’s screwed on tightly (it sort of self tamps) So by having a gram less, it may just improve the flow. You could also remove the small silicone piece from the spring in the portafilter (non-pressurized mode) this will also help. The new design allows you to pull dual shots, so there’s no more fighting over who gets the first cup of coffee.
