Wacaco Minipresso GR, Portable Espresso Machine offers something coffee enthusiasts did not think existed, espresso on the road or off the grid. No more do caffeine junkies need to rely on bulky espresso machines or tattooed hipsters with curly mustaches for their hot shots of espresso. Reviewers took the Wacaco Minipresso GR with them on road trips, business trips, and camping trips, and they were really surprised with the result. Normally when you hear "coffee on the road", you think of watery gas station coffee or that dusty dehydrated stuff you brew over your campfire. Wacaco Minipresso GR, however, gave reviewers a quality shot of espresso with a shockingly satisfying crema. They might as well have stopped at a their regular coffee shop. Some may consider espresso an art which is why Wacaco also created very simple and very easy-to-follow instructions in creating the perfect shot. With a portable espresso machine, you can be your own barista anywhere in the world.
While this portable espresso machine brewed quality espresso, the machine itself appeared to be made of lesser quality materials. Various reviewers were very happy with the portable espresso machine, in the beginning. A few months and a few adventures later, the Wacaco Minipress GR began degrading. The most notable part was the pump. Less and less espresso was being brewed. Sometimes it would even splatter hot water over the user.
Even though the love was short lived, reviews hinted towards repurchase. Many loved the concept, but not necessarily the execution. In this sense, the Wacaco Minipress GR may be the perfect test product in portable espresso machines.
