Wacaco Picopresso : The Portable Coffee Maker
An ultra-compact travel coffee maker for a professional espresso
With the Picopresso, Wacaco has reinvented the travel coffee machine by using a fairly large filter holder (52 mm), while offering a machine that fits in one hand! The objective? To create a mobile coffee maker capable of producing an intense double espresso with a nice crema. No need to sacrifice the quality of your coffee when you're away from home!
Despite its height of 10.5 cm and its weight of 350 g, the Wacaco Picopresso offers an intense experience thanks to its single filter (52 mm), designed to hold 18 g of coffee, ideal for a double espresso in the morning or for a boost in the morning!
And for the coffee nerds, Wacaco gives you the possibility to make a bottomless extraction. You can choose between a standard extraction with a spout or a bottomless filter.
With a simple filter, you will of course need a grind that is suitable for espresso: homogeneous and fine. You will therefore need to master the art of espresso making: finding the right grind, packing well, managing the extraction...
The features of the Wacaco Picopresso?
Using the Wacaco Picopresso
The Wacaco Picopresso requires hot water (if you are hiking, bring your hot water in a good isothermal container), 16 to 18 gr of ground coffee (very fine and homogeneous).
Following the instructions (or see the brand's video below), prepare your ground coffee in the filter, tamp it down, screw the filter with the ground coffee under the Picopresso, add the hot water on top and put the lid on so as not to burn yourself, pump 8 times and wait 8 to 10 seconds for the pre-infusion, finish pumping to extract your double espresso.
It is recommended to pump with both hands for a good result.
For maintenance, simply rinse the elements (filter and spray head) with clean water. Try it with a cloth and let it dry in the open air.
What we think:
- A small yet sturdy machine
- Bottomless extraction
- Well thought-out design for everything in the case
- It is essential to know how to adjust the grind with a suitable grinder and to know the basics for extracting an espresso. Double filter to extract a double espresso.
