Review - Staresso Manual Coffee Maker

*This is a sponsored review. All opinion are 100% mine.

Each time I had convinced myself that I've seen almost every kind of coffee maker, something new comes to my attention. Which is exactly what happened when I learned about the new Staresso Manual Coffee Maker.

What exactly is the Staresso Manual Coffee Maker?

Well, it's kinda like a travel espresso machine that uses a vacuumed sealed pump to make a quick caffeinated shot.

Created in China, the unique manual hydraulic pumping system will give a pressure higher than 15 BAR level, which is higher than a normal espresso machine.

The Staresso unboxed!
The coffee ground basket!
Ready to make an espresso!


Final Thoughts: Once I read the directions "completely," it didn't take me very long to make an espresso shot. What you need to do is to untwist the the bottom of the pump shaft. There you will find a small basket to put the coffee grounds in. Fill it up with coffee grounds and twist the end back on the shaft. Untwist to remove the pump lid and pour hot water into the main shaft. Before you put the lid back on make sure to press down and turn on the middle part to release the pump. Once the lid is secured, place the shaft on top of the glass/espresso shot chamber. Then all you have to do is to press up and down on the pump until the espresso is released into the small glass. You'll have to twist off the top of the chamber to pull out the glass.

Cleaning takes a bit of time as you need to take everything apart. It comes with a little brush that you can use to remove any of the coffee grounds that get stuck in the basket. 

It comes with a spare ring, an extra basket, and a measuring cup.

I'm a big coffee lover, so of course I was excited to try out the Staresso as soon as I received it. Like I already mentioned, once I read the instructions it was pretty easy to use, and within a few minute I had made a small espresso.  

It's mostly made out hard plastic, but it's constructed really well. 

Overall, I do like the Staresso. It's easy to use, and it has a slick design. I only wish it was easier to clean.
