Hi, has anyone tried portaspresso? It's an Australian invention for a portable espresso. I think Handpresso fails to deliver full body espresso and Mypressi isn't that convenient for travelers with the cartridge. From youtube it seems pretty good but it is expensive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLSQtKTYp5s

Please let me know if anyone tried it.

Thanks :)

I haven't used it - nor have I used any of the portable espresso machines (Handpresso, MyPressi), and I don't have enough technical knowledge to pass judgment, so I guess this post is meaningless. Really I just wanted to say:
Good find and thanks for posting!

Cheers.
Randy

I've had a Bacchi for several months, maybe a year.  It works and is very consistent (and not at all convenient if you're making more than a single shot).  It still requires a heat source and a proper grinder.  I haven't had any problems with it, but it see only "curiosity" use, not day to day use.
