For The Traveller Who Has Everything

It’s not possible. Incroyable! Those cunning French types have created the must-have accessory for 2015 – a portable and very elegant espresso machine. Ever craved for a short black on that long haul flight? Or found yourself facing an ancient sachet of instant coffee in a hotel room? Then the Handpresso Wild Hybrid is the answer to your prayers. The robust thermos flask means that you can now make coffee just about anywhere – from a remote camp site to your railway carriage. All you need is some hot water to fill the thermos and even the laziest cabin crew can manage that. The ingenious pump action system means that you can quickly achieve  16 bar-pressure – and the perfect espresso. The supa dupa leather travel bag contains a manual espresso machine, four unbreakable cups, a single hand thermos-insulated flask (to keep hot water even longer) and one small napkin. The machine takes normal ground coffee or E.S.E. pods. The shoulder bag weighs just 1590g or 3.5lbs. This wonderful little travel mate cost €179 and it does work beautifully. I tested the unit during a road trip to Port Lincoln. My score: a perfect 10. Bravo. Smaller units for the car are also available. For more information visit
