Durability when pressing. It is not advisable to press the coffee , as it can damage the machine.

Small portion. It only allows you to make 1-1.5 cups at a time, so to get more you’ll have to repeat the process. However, this machine is quite fast.
Non-removable nozzle. This is the only part that is difficult to clean.

Put the Wacaco Minipresso in the side pocket of your backpack to enjoy the perfect camping companion with caffeine (ten euros, you’ll be the world’s favorite person in the morning)! Although not as light as the AeroPress , its compact and sleek design makes it easy to pack into the backpack at the last minute.

The Minipresso weighs 363 grams, and we think backpackers might want to give up that extra weight (we know that every gram counts). But if you go camping using the car, go ahead, take the Minipresso! Aren’t you tired of lazy hotel coffee? Now you understand me.

A maintenance tip is to clean and dry the Minipresso thoroughly before storing it . Wacaco only recommends cleaning it with hot water, and it is not dishwasher safe , so clean it before it gets clogged.

Indeed… We did not clean it and one day we were greeted by a fibrous mold all over the infusion chamber. But we forgot, so you have no excuse!

How does the Minipresso GR espresso machine work?
Using this espresso machine is very easy. Of course, you should read the instruction manual that comes with it for guidance, especially the first time you use it. This mini machine is perfect for preparing coffee manually, and that without forgetting that it is easy to operate . It can provide you with the cream longed for by any qualified barista. Also, the preparation time is quite fast . It only takes a few seconds, and the result each time is around 1-1.5 cups.

It may not seem like enough. But don’t worry, as you can always repeat the procedure. This machine is so fast that it won’t be a problem for you. Now, be very careful when pressing the coffee into the filter , as this could damage the pump seal. However, you can skip pressing by using the spoon to fill the filter with the ground coffee.

So first of all, use the spoon to add the ground coffee to the filter. Tap lightly and apply a little pressure until the ground coffee reaches the proper level. Then you can add hot water to the tank until the limit is reached. After screwing in the machine, turn it around and pump slowly to increase the pressure. Keep adding pressure until you have extracted the espresso.

This coffee maker is not only easy to use, but it is also easy to clean since all its parts are removable . After disassembling the parts (except the nozzle), rinse them with clean water. Clean the nozzle area by running water through it, but carefully. You can also do a supplemental cleaning using vinegar to make sure you remove all the stuck particles in the nozzle and pump. Then rinse it a few times with water to leave it clean. After this, your Minipresso will be ready for the next cup of espresso.

How to make a cup

When you first open the box it comes in, its compact, cylindrical shape (some may remind you of a submarine!) Makes you wonder how it’s possible to brew a cup of coffee with something like that. Start unscrewing the ends and you can see the mechanism behind this machine.

At one end, you have the infusion chamber, which has a filter container where you will have to put 8 grams of ground coffee. At the other end is the hot water tank. But be careful, because if you overfill it, the hot water will leak!

When you are ready, add the ground coffee to the filter and gently press it with the back of the spoon (it is designed for this, but it does not serve to make a normal pressing). Once you have everything secured, raise the piston and start pumping! But wait, don’t pump too fast! Wacaco recommends pressing once per second.

It doesn’t look like an espresso machine at all, but it certainly makes espressos! The result is somewhat smoother than usual , but for a compact espresso maker for a cup, it’s pretty impressive!

In part, that is due to the semi-automatic piston that extracts with a pressure of 8 bars (at the level of real espresso machines, coffee friends!). You also don’t have to worry about your fingers, since the Minipresso offers little resistance when it comes to extracting and, at the same time, pumping is easy .


If you’re out in nature and need something to give you energy, the Wacaco Minipresso portable espresso machine covers your back! Its sleek, cylindrical body fits in small pockets, and it weighs less than 450 grams (so you can carry more coffee). For being an 8 bar espresso coffee machine with a capacity for 8 grams of ground coffee, it is capable of preparing a more than decent cup that will satisfy your caffeine needs.
