Discontinued

The HandPresso Wild Hybrid is a unique invention that allows you to have the espresso you enjoy wherever you want – from a weekend away from home to the Alaskan wilderness. The versatile handheld espresso machine allows you to make espresso from ground coffee or Easy Serve Espresso pods. It’s a small machine, but that doesn’t mean it can’t deliver – most consumers who have used the product say it delivers espresso with great flavor and crema.

How to Operate

Operation is very easy – it takes four basic steps.

  1. Start by hand pumping the espresso machine until it has 16 bars of pressure. The operation of the pump is very similar to that of a bicycle pump – as it’s pumped it builds pressure in a chamber. When it reaches the 16 bar mark, stop pumping. It takes between 10 and 30 pumps for the espresso machine to reach full pressure.
  2. Fill the internal water reservoir with hot water (water that has just been heated, or from an insulated container). Put the lid on once the reservoir has reached capacity.
  3. Insert an E.S.E pod/ground espresso. Attached the portafilter lid.
  4. The Handpresso Wild Hybrid has a black spout on one end. Hold this over your espresso cup. The espresso machine has a button on top of the machine. Push the button to extract. To stop extraction, you can press on the bottom of the machine to return the dispensing button back to it’s pre-extraction postion.

Carrying and Storage 

The Handpresso Wild Hybrid is small and light. It only weighs 1.2 lbs and measures 8.7 inches long, 3.9 inches wide, and 2.8 inches high. This size and weight makes it easy to carry in a backpack or carrying bag.

Water Reservoir Capacity

The water reservoir on this hand held espresso machine has a maximum water capacity of 1.69 fluid ounces.

Taste of Espresso from a Handpresso Wild Hybrid

At 16 bars of pressure, this hand held espresso machine does have what it takes to make true espresso. An alternative like a Moka pot, can make decent coffee, but it’s not true espresso. When compared to the espresso produced from a full sized espresso machine, the Handpresso Wild Hybrid makes pretty good espresso – not as good, but still decent. One of the reasons is that the espresso machine doesn’t include as much CO2 in the extraction process. CO2 is an important part of making espresso as it helps get the oil out of the ground coffee as it passes through it as high pressure.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Cleaning the Handpresso Wild Hybrid is easy – simply rinse under warm water. Don’t use any detergents, alcohol, or acid based cleaning agents, such as descalers.

Microwave

A common question about the Handpresso Wild Hybrid is whether it’s microwave safe. It is not – microwaving it could cause you, the espresso machine and the microwave damage. Do not attempt to microwave in any circumstance.
