The ManPRESSO Machine

The Espresso machine comes home, electricity-free and relatively inexpensive!

The Presso might lack the bells, whistles and even the electrical power of other espresso machines. But what it lacks in flash it makes up for in utility as this device brings home-made human-powered espresso right to your kitchen with ease. The device has two metal arms on either side of the machine that utilizes leverage and a specially designed one-way valve to produce approximately 10 bar of pressure on your ground and tamped coffee. Just add hot water to the device’s reservoir, and press down on the arms and voila! Home-made espresso!




Conventional espresso machines can range from few hundred to even a few thousand dollars depending on the features it offers, so $149.99 for this electricity-free bad boy is not too shabby.
