Handpresso Auto: When Starbucks Is Just Too Slow

inTIMidator March 27, 2012

Love caffeine? Hate Starbucks? Always in your car? Well have we got the gadget for you!

Introducing the Handpresso Auto, an espresso machine that plugs into your 12-volt power outlet (formerly known as a cigarette lighter). For a mere $200 you can bypass your local java spot and enjoy the luxury of your own personal barista slinging drinks in the comfort of your car.

That being said, I have to ask, how long will it take for some knucklehead to spill hot Joe on his pants, cause a 30 car pile-up and force yet another law in our “free country?” And, lets not even talk about the fact that we are heating liquid with an electrical outlet. Yeah, nothing could possibly go wrong with that combination…

But, if you are in need of espresso on the go (like I need coffee twenty times daily), then get a load of this: the manufacturer claims that the Handpresso Auto churns out coffee from ESE pods with 16 bars of pressure! (Yeah, no idea what that means, so if someone could explain, that would be great)

So, next time you find yourself nodding off at the wheel, remember there is a cheap $200 solution in the Handpress Auto… or in a can of Red Bull… or in not driving while you’re tired stupid.
