New from French Handpresso, the Handpresso Auto E.S.E. is an espresso machine built specifically for use in automobiles.
We’ve seen a number of innovations designed to help consumers get a good cup of coffee wherever they happen to be. One we hadn’t seen, however, is a brewing device for the car — until now, that is. New from French Handpresso, the Handpresso Auto E.S.E. is an espresso machine built specifically for use in automobiles. The Handpresso Auto fits in a standard cup holder and plugs into the car’s 12V cigarette lighter. Users then simply add water and a coffee pod of their choosing and press the button. The Handpresso Auto brews with 16-bar pressure; when the espresso is ready — cycle time is two minutes — the device beeps three times. The video below demonstrates the Handpresso Auto in action. Priced at EUR 149, the Handpresso Auto is currently available throughout Europe. Retailers in other parts of the globe: time to get in line?
