With the coffee machines, you can turn the whole world into your café. The small coffee machines are hand-operated, portable and compact. Whether you're hiking, camping, or just enjoying a good cup of coffee, Wacaco's coffee makers have you covered.
With the different sizes - Cuppamoke, Pipamoka, Nanopress and Minipresso - you can adapt the coffee machine to your individual needs. The portable espresso machines are made of reinforced materials to withstand impacts. An innovative creation built to last, to provide authentic coffee beverages every time.
The startup Wacaco was founded in 2013 and is based in Hong Kong. The company originally started as a personal project to design a small, compact espresso machine. Hugo Cailleton, the founder of Wacaco has a masters degree in industrial design and was involved in the manufacture of home espresso machines for many years before beginning the development of the Minipresso. The idea of the portable espresso machine, which would allow you to brew your own coffee on the go, came to his mind one morning while on a business trip after being let down by a bad espresso shot at a hotel. Back home, he began checking out available offers, buying and testing samples. But none of these products fully satisfied him. They were too heavy, had poor extractions, the coffee was too cold, or they were overpriced for their occasional use.
Because he aspired to enjoy great espresso every day, he used his creative spirit to develop a handheld device with a performance close to that of home coffee makers, making it possible to brew good espresso anywhere low cost to brew. He had many problems to solve, but ultimately created a solution that satisfied him.
