Handheld Espresso Maker Creates Sustained 9 Bars of Pressure


Handheld and/or portable espresso makers have come a long way in the last few years. They’ve been able to create greater pressure – and sometimes even the industry standard of 9 bars, or higher. Yet finding one that consistently produces those 9 bars throughout the entire brew has still been a challenge.

Enter the Cafflano Kompresso.

What Is The Cafflano Kompresso?

The newest product from Cafflano, the company behind the award-winning Klassic and Kompact, the Kompresso was launched on Kickstarter earlier today. Simply pledge US $35 to receive one.

It’s a lightweight, handheld espresso maker that uses Pascal’s Principle of Hydraulics along with a unique squeezing action. The result is a sustained 9 bars of pressure – in a machine that’s fully portable, whether you’re going camping or just want better office coffee.
