Handpresso

Handpresso lays claim to being “the undisputed leader of the portable espresso” with its line of handheld espresso makers, but perhaps the company’s greatest gift to coffee lovers on the go has recently landed in the form of the Handpresso Auto.

The product description says it all:

A revolutionary machine preparing a premium quality espresso in the car! Handpresso Auto helps you optimize your coffee break wherever you are.

Simple and easy to use, Handpresso Auto can be placed in the cup holder. Just plug the espresso machine into the 12V cigarette lighter, add water and a E.S.E. coffee pod of your choice. Then press the button, wait for the 3 beeps and the espresso is ready!

Thanks to the 16 bar pressure, the espressos are delicious, creamy and tasty!

Note that the gentleman in the below video pulls his car over before crafting his mobile-born espresso, then enjoys his drink outside. That seems to be relatively safe, though the weird hallucination-like sequences that follow are a bit concerning. Must be strong coffee!

The Handpresso Auto runs for 149 Euro ($200) and the company is located in France if you care to try your luck with an online order. There’s also a lone U.S. distributor that doesn’t seem to carry the product yet, but stocks other Handpresso goods.

It's not working! I wanted to use it for my boat, but it just not working. Thanksfully I found a real espresso machine that runs at 12V from an Italian company called Italbrew. They are located in Florida, and I ordered it by email (I found their website, never saw the location). The only problem I had it was that I had to wait two weeks because they have a waiting list. But is ok, I'm happy that I finally have my coffee when I go fishing:)
