Previously, enjoying a piping hot espresso while camping or fishing was about as practical as crocheting while kitesurfing. But Minipresso from Wacaco promises to make any on-the-go situation perfect for everyone’s favorite little potent and pressure-packed coffee.

This is a hand-powered portable espresso machine that needs no compressed air or other fancy gadgetry to get the job done. Just scoop up the coffee, tamp it down, pour 2.4 ounces of hot water into the chamber, then start pumping to pre-infuse and build up the pressure. Keep pumping to extract the coffee and you’re left with a robust 1.7 ounce espresso to savor at your cubicle, on the plane, or in a fancy hot air balloon. Pre-order now for $39 and Wacaco says you’ll get your Minipresso in early 2015. [Purchase]
