The lineup for your favorite hot beverage has just been reduced to one. Handpresso of France makes this portable 140-watt espresso machine that fits in your vehicle’s cupholder and plugs in to a 12-volt receptacle, such as a lighter socket. The $200 unit takes most E.S.E (Easy Serving Espresso) coffee pods and brews up the contents in about two minutes (the Handpresso beeps three times when it’s done). Get the details regarding this unique device and available accessories at www.handpresso.com, but your best bet for orders within North America is www.amazon.com, and www.nextag.com.
