I'm very impressed with this little machine. When you read about it being able to produce an espresso as good as a barista, you think its all marketing. I've used it several times, with the Nespresso adaptor, with the single shot grind holder and the double shot holder. It most definitely meets up to it's hype. It produces an espresso extraction comparable to and in my experience, some times better than more expensive commercial machines (most times poor barista to blame). Obviously, the quality of the coffee used and grind size and freshness greatly affects the output espresso. Nanopresso is good, but cannot produce good espresso from poor coffee beans. I would most definitely recommend the Nanopresso for any coffee lover or connoisseur on the move.
Amazing Portable Espresso Machine
I recently bought the Nanopresso, the barista kit and the Nespresso adapter to use at work because I am often nowhere near a good coffee shop and the coffee provided at work tastes like dirty dish water. I was sceptical about spending that much on a machine I hadn’t tried but there was enough good reviews online by coffee nerds that I decided to give it a shot. I’ve had it for a few weeks and I am thoroughly impressed. The Nanopresso makes wonderful espresso with great crema! Obviously your espresso will only be as good as the beans you use. For those interested in the Nespresso adapter, it also works very well. I use it for those times when I don’t have time to grind coffee and do the whole process which is messier and having running water is fairly essential for clean up esp if making many shots. Other notes I have. Absolutely get the barista kit, otherwise you can only do single shots (who has only one shot of espresso?) the barista kit comes with 2 x double shot pods. You have to sort out your grind. If your grind is too fine water won’t pump through. Experiment. When using the Nespresso adapter, pump evenly and consistently. If you try to pump it too fast it will build up too much pressure and blow the foil open which will shoot grinds into your cup. That is all for now. Enjoy.
Great Mobile Espresso maker
If you need an espresso maker for camping or just generally when not at home, this is the one. In fact, you can definitely use it at home too. It is particular about getting the grind correct, as too fine a grind will make it exceedingly difficult to pump and too coarse doesn’t yield a good shot. As a main coffee device, maybe look elsewhere, but irrespective it will indeed pull a proper shot of espresso! Very cool. My only gripe is that the pump plunger sticks a bit, so it doesn’t always extend fully when in use. Otherwise, great kit, high quality plastic, rubber and metal throughout. If you want a full shot, grab the barrista kit, skip the small case that some of them come with and order the large case separately.
