Handpresso Auto - The Espresso Machine for Your Car
Given hands free driving, texting while driving, and just about doing anything while driving being hailed as bad for auto safefy, we are a bit surprised at making espresso while driving is making a comeback. Seriously - Handpresso Auto is a portable espresso maker meant for pulling the car over for a shot of your favorite espresso. We also imagine Handpresso Auto is perfect for those of you that like to camp with your car handy.
Weighing in at just under two pounds, the Handpresso Auto is powered by 12V DC from your cigarette lighter, and draws just 140 watts. You'll need to add water, an ESE espresso pod, and in less than two minutes you'll have a shot of espresso from the 16 bars of pressure produced. Handpresso also sells portable clear espresso cups that are very durable so you can also have the right cup for the right road trip.
We're pretty sure we want one regardless of the inherent dangers of hot molten espresso in our lap. Maybe we can get a shot while driving if we have a passenger do the dirty work. We're also waiting on the first aftermarket ESE espresso pod waste bin for the car so we can clean up our mess. And wait a second - aren't we also going to need water from somewhere? Perhaps we'll also install a water cooler in our car to get the job done.
Oh Handpresso Auto - we don't have flying cars, but we can feel like we're flying while driving because we're hopped up on caffeine thanks to you.

This is pretty cool. Although, I don’t trust myself to pull over while I try to make it. I would probably end up trying to hold the cup between my knees or maybe steer with one knee. I think they should also make a cup warmer attachment and a frothing wand attachment so I can make my wife a skinny capp on our next road trip.
