In-Car Espresso Makers

The 'Handpresso Auto' Makes Hot Beverages While You Drive

— March 23, 2012 — Autos
It’s possible to drink and drive responsibly with the 'Handpresso Auto,' a portable espresso maker designed for in-car use.

This gadget will allow you to consume a cup of hot coffee in your car seat while you fight against time. To brew a coffee, plug the Handpresso Auto into your car’s 12V cigarette lighter, add some cold water, a coffee pod and wait. It takes only three minutes to brew with an indicating beep sound; the notification is a safety feature as there’s no need to take your eyes off the road. 

This personal Handpresso Auto is equipped with 16 bars that will apply enough pressure to make an espresso just like a regular espresso machine. It’s priced at roughly $200, but worth the purchase if you’re always on the go.
