Handpresso HPWILD Wild: Espresso-on-the-Go
Most of us do our espresso-concocting sessions at home, trying out different blends and techniques to get that exquisite final cup for our own enjoyment.
A typical espresso machine has the usual bells and whistles: Boiler, Steam Wand, Portafilter…the works. It usually comes in a couple of inches in height and width, and sits perfectly on our kitchen counter-top or table.
More often than not, it sees daily use, from regular Americanos to Lattes and Cappuccinos – it’s a part of the day of any coffee fan. But where are we going to get our coffee or espresso fix if we’re not home, or can’t see a nearby coffee shop?
The Portable Barrista
Enter the Handpresso HPWILD Wild, an espresso maker so small and compact you will have to see it in action to believe it. This little but very capable device make use of Easy Serving Espresso (E.S.E) pods to make your espresso or regular cup of joe.
It is very easy to use, and does not create much mess afterwards.
It is sleek and shiny in black, cylindrical in shape with a round-shaped attachment (hot water reservoir and E.S.E container) at the bottom. A pressure gauge rests beside it and a lone black button serves as the device’s “trigger”.
Tasty Espresso in 4 Easy Steps
Aside from being popular due to its portability, the Handpresso is also one of the easiest espresso makers to use since you actually only need to follow 4 simple steps:
- Pump the Handpresso until the needle in the Pressure Gauge sits on the green area. This means it already reached the 16-Bars of pressure required for brewing espresso
- Fill the water reservoir with hot water
- Place an E.S.E pod on the filter and close the top
- Press the button to release the Espresso
To clean it, just remove and rinse the cap with water and dispense the used E.S.E pod.

The device is small and easy to carry which makes it an excellent choice for outdoor use. The E.S.E pods are widely available and come in a ton of different blends and flavors.
