THE PORTABLE COFFEE GRINDER FOR YOUR ADVENTURES.
theportapresso.com | Goal: US$50,000 | Raised: US$41,180 from 228 backers RRP: From US$200 At first, we had this product lined up for a spot in Ridiculous Tech (see page 114), but then we remembered visiting both the US and the UK and the terrible quality of their coffee, and decided that the PortaPresso wasn’t such a dumb idea after all. In yet another world first (apparently), the PortaPresso has been designed to do everything necessary to brew you a boss of a cuppa — or three, because it can do three in one go. Simply add your favourite beans, milk and water, choose what style of coffee you want, do any customisable tweaking via the app (such as temperature or frothiness), and wait for the magic to happen. The kit comes with the necessary charger, a cup and two C02 canisters (for purposes of frothing). If you’re on holiday somewhere and can’t do without your cup of coffee, this sounds like a potential solution to your early morning grumpiness!
