Why shoppers love it

This portable espresso machine has a 4.2-star rating on more than 1,600 reviews.

“Portable and practical! My boyfriend is really happy with this gift. I Recommend it!” wrote one five-star reviewer.

Another happy customer said the portable espresso machine is “perfect for travel.”

“This was an impulse buy. I bought it to use in hotels in remote locations that often have a microwave and a kettle in the rooms. The unit is a great travel size taking up minimal space in your luggage. It also puts out a great crema with the espresso,” the customer added. “I wish I could do a double shot, but it was really easy to clean and reset for a second shot. I microwaved the water that I used for the shot and that seemed to keep it quite hot. I drink Americanos so I also added hot water from the kettle after doing the shots. It is lot nicer than the hotel room coffee I've been having lately. A great purchase. I am pleased with it.”

So happy I don't need to buy an espresso machine that takes up all my counter space!”

Another customer said it’s “worth it” to purchase.

“Really good for when you need a good espresso. Good for camping or to take to work. Simple to use and simple to clean. Overall happy with the purchase,” the customer added.
