Minipresso GRRubra Coffee
Minipresso GR is your best choice to savour all the varieties of ground coffee and enjoy an authentic espresso wherever you are. Compact, lightweight and sturdy, Minipresso will make you smile when you get the first drip of espresso from this little coffee bullet.
Minipresso doesn't require compressed air, N2O cartridges or electricity for its operation. Hand operated, you are free to prepare coffee drinks that you love.
Besides being aesthetically pleasant with its modern and slick design, Minipresso contains an ingenious core, the semi-automatic piston. Unlock it from its carrying position and press it at will to control the amount of extracted coffee.
Minipresso GR is simple and intuitive to operate. Add ground coffee to the filter basket with the help of the integrated scoop. Apply slight pressure to level the grind. Add hot water into the water tank. Finally, unlock from its travel position the piston and pump a few strokes to pressurize and extract perfect espresso with generous crema.

How good is the extraction?
The extraction capability of the Minipresso won't disappoint you. 116 psi is exactly the pressure produced by traditional piston-driven espresso machines. Minipresso produces at ambient condition (75°F, 24°C), an espresso at the perfect temperature (152°F, 67°C in a cup) with a nice compact and persistent crema on top.
Does the pumping require a lot of force?
Not really! The whole process is much easier and faster than to inflate a bicycle tire with a hand pump. Depending on the coffee package, the compression force required may vary from 6 to 12 Kg. However we recommend to hold Minipresso with two hands during the use. This method needs less arm strength.
Does the Minipresso heat up the water?
No! In order to drink a hot espresso, you will have to fill the water tank with hot water.
Does the Minipresso need maintenance?
Out of respect to the machine, a minimum maintenance is necessary. This will ensure a long life cycle to Minipresso. We recommend to clean, under running water, the cup and the coffee adapter compartments after each use. The water tank only needs to be dried with a cloth. Do NOT place Minipresso in the dishwasher.
What's the difference between the Nanopresso and the Minipresso?
The Nanopresso offers more bars of pressure than its predecessor the Minipresso - giving a better extraction of espresso. It also has slightly more water capacity, made with stronger materials and is lighter than the Minipresso. The Nanopresso has the ability to 'adapt' (has adapters for the same model) to change from using ground coffee to capsules - the Minipresso can only have one function depending on the model.
