NO­MAD ESPRESSO MA­CHINE

PC & Tech Authority - - MOST WANTED -

The prob­lem with be­ing a true cof­fee snob these days is ev­ery­one has caught on. Step 1: buy a ma­chine that uses pods. Step 2: get guilty about how much “waste” the pods gen­er­ate, throw out the pod ma­chine and buy a “proper” espresso ma­chine. How can you pos­si­bly stand out? Make your cof­fee in an ac­tual pot on the stove like some kind of Ital­ian?

MOST WANTED:

There’s a new way! The No­mad is a pur­port­edly por­ta­ble espresso-maker where you just fill a reser­voir with boil­ing wa­ter, then rock the level back and forth like an olde-timey fire en­gine to pres­surise the sys­tem. Then make use of the patented True Crema Valve and we guess a cup too, to make an espresso that ac­tu­ally looks like an espresso. Be the envy of other glam­pers!

NOT WANTED:

Uniterra pro­motes the No­mad as a por­ta­ble sys­tem be­cause it doesn’t need elec­tric­ity, but it’s still a bit of a chun­ker and it’s a weird shape. So car camping yes, Tas­ma­nia’s Over­land Track (a six to seven day walk) no. Also, since you need to be car­ry­ing ground cof­fee, there’s a risk you’ll still be fool­ing around get­ting this thing primed while your Ital­ian friend makes ev­ery­one else ex­cel­lent cof­fee on the fire with a billy and a spoon.
