At $194, the Handpresso Auto Espresso Maker is a well priced portable travel espresso maker. We’re fans of the super-automatics but we understand that some spend a good portion of the morning inside the boundaries of a vehicle. Handpresso uses the 12-volt power lighter outlet to heat around 1.8 oz of water. In less than two minutes the Handpresso brews your espresso. The device itself looks like a thermos and sits nicely in a cup holder. While it does look like a device out of an episode of 24, we can only hope that you will not be alone in enjoying a freshly brewed cup of espresso during your commute. Available from Amazon.

For a version of the Handpresso made for picnics and days out in the sun, be sure to check the Handpresso Outdoor Espresso Set, which comes inside a nice leather carry case.
