Handpresso — An Espresso Machine For Your Car

Got a commute to work that’s longer than 2 minutes? Perfect, that’s just enough time for a cup of espresso, if you’re using Handpresso, the thermos-sized espresso machine built for your car.

This ‘handy’ machine is roughly the same size as a thermos, plugs in to a 12V cigarette lighter socket, and will make your espresso with a few heavy splashes of water. Using 16 bars of pressure, 140 Watts of power and a cycle that takes roughly 2 minutes, the Handpresso boasts multiple ‘flavor pods’ for ultimate selection and taste.

The unit is priced at 149 Euros, or the current equivalent of roughly 200 US dollars.

Overall I like the concept, I’m just not certain how I feel about it yet. Drivers have too many distractions as it is and while the video illustrates a driver being responsible and pulling over to make his espresso I no doubt know that they’ll be others who won’t be so conscientious.
