Litchi Portable Espresso Machine by Manual Mini Coffee Maker 3 OZ : and as a coffee-snob I find it difficult to enjoy consistently good coffee when I am not near an

This is my best acquisition on amazon for the last year. I have been using my portable espresso for a couple of weeks, about twice a day every day. It produces consistent results comparable to what you could achieve with a household machine. Several people at my office have been captivated by its simplicity, efficacy and pleasant appearance.

I travel a lot, and as a coffee-snob i find it difficult to enjoy consistently good coffee when i am not near an espresso machine. Requiring no more power than boiling water – this solution makes amazing espressos every time. Lightweight, compact, durable, easy to use and easy to clean. Perfect for those who want quality coffee but are not near civilisation or power.

This is easy to use and makes a nice cup of espresso style coffee. It’s worth paying the small amount extra to get the second basket to make a second cup without having to wash up. The device is well constructed. We use this for our holiday coffee when proper coffee facilities are not available. I found that the quality of the coffee produced improved dramatically if i applied a slow steady pressure rather than trying to pump quickly.

I’ve had mine for nearly three months now. After a couple of weeks the return spring on the pump stopped working, not a big deal, just made it a bit more fiddly to use. Now, an internal seal has started to go, so small amounts of water leak out with each pump. I suspect it isn’t long before it stops working altogether. That said, i have been using it daily at work – two shots per drink usually twice a day, so that’s four complete operations a day, meaning the device has been run around 400 times before it started to fail. That works out at 5p a shot. It does make really good coffee, so if you only want to use it for camping or other occasional use i’d say go ahead.

Not working anymore after 4 monts and no replace or refund option from seller.

Actually tastes very familiar to express from my machine at homecan be a bit fiddly ,but for the convenience it’s worth it.

Makes great espresso – bit of a palaver though.

I haven’t really gotten to grips with this yet. Now relegated to be back of the cupboard.

 first device was faulty and was not sealed. Ended up getting hot water all over my hands. Litchi then sent out a replacement device and it appears to be working fine. As per other reviews, i wouldn’t compress the coffee grounds too hard as the pressure would probably build up and break the device. Go easy on the coffee and you’ll be fine. Great customer service but wished the device was more robust.

You do not need too much pressure and it is easy to assemble. Very compact and certainly saved the day at work when an espresso is all that will do.

Really surprised about how easy it is to use and the quality of coffee that is produced. It makes a standard espresso size but you could add extra water to make it a larger americana.

What a fantastic product, real espresso at work in minutes. Very simple and easy to use.

This so did the job for me while traveling without coffee maker.
