Meet the New Picopresso from Wacaco
Espresso machine in the palm of your hand!
What an impressive unit! From the initial packaging presentation and the unwrapping, straight away Wacaco are off to a great start. The unit itself is solid, a bit more weightier than the Nanopresso, but it includes a lot more metal components.
From the solid metal tamper, dosing ring, a 16gm filter basket, it's precision hand held device. Whilst it comes in 3-4 pieces in the box, all the components neatly pack up within the unit itself, all in its own hard case.
The thing I love is the naked (bottomless) portafilter concept. Like using all naked portafilters, it takes a bit to master initially with your dose and packing. Luckily my first time using the Picopresso I was wearing a black top, otherwise it could have been messy! The extraction from the unit was great to watch, a bit hard to see when you are using it, but I held it over a mirror coaster and it's worth a look. The 16-18gm basket is a great addition, doubling the size of the Nanopresso.
The Picopresso does not come with a cup like its predecessors, so don't forget to take one if you are travelling.
