Coffee drinkers looking for a portable “authentic” espresso maker may be interested in a new device which has been launched by the team over at Beanscorp and takes the form of the Cafflano Kompresso.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Cafflano Kompresso which has this week raised $45,000 via Kickstarter thanks to over 860 backers.
The development team behind Cafflano Kompresso explain more about its inspiration, design and functionality.
Beanscorp is back again to Kickstarter with its third flagship model, Cafflano Kompresso, the world’s most compact and the lightest authentic espresso maker. It is less than 200g weight (0.45lb) and compact (17cm x 10cm), but outperforming all existing portable espresso gears in the market. It consistently delivers over 9 bar of pressure while extracting espresso, which is known to be the magic number for espresso.
Most portable espresso makers in the market use manual pneumatic compression (air-pump type compression), that, in many cases, is not able to retain the necessary high-pressure throughout the whole extraction process that takes around 25 to 30 seconds. Typical pneumatic compression uses air (or gas in some cases) that can be compressed easily and causes delays while transmitting power or force. In case of manual pneumatic compression, the air pressure can easily go down as it relies on a manual pump.
So, Beanscorp’s CEO, Hansang Yoon, who is the inventor of both award-winning Cafflano® Klassic and Kompact, developed a portable espresso maker that has a simple compact structure, yet can consistently amplify force to achieve over 9 bars of pressure for the tastiest espresso; hoping it would be an affordable espresso maker that could help anyone extract authentic espresso anytime, anywhere.
