A new portable coffee brewing system aptly named Coffeejack has raised over £100,000 via Kickstarter thanks to over 1, 200 backers with still 46 days remaining on its campaign.

The developing team at HRIBARCAIN based in Bristol within the United Kingdom explain more about the inspiration behind the Coffeejack pocket barista.
“We grew tired of investing in expensive portable coffee makers and never experiencing the same quality espresso we could only get from a coffee shop. Therefore, we would still go to expensive coffee shops every day! Second to that, we were guilty of using disposable cups, purely due to convenience (hands up!). We knew we could engineer something better, something that fulfilled our desire for great coffee and helped the environment at the same time. We cannot express the level of passion and tenacity that has been invested into this project. “
“It is factually the smallest espresso machine on the market (only 100mm high). But most importantly it ACTUALLY produces coffee shop quality coffee. This has been no easy task to achieve and we refused to stop until it met our high standards and of those in the coffee industry. 392 prototypes, one filed patent later and we’ve finally done it! We are very proud to finally unveil our most exclusive project to the Kickstarter family. We are now seriously excited to make COFFEEJACK a reality!”
