Founded in 2013, Wacaco is a startup company based in Hong Kong. Originally started in 2012 as a personal project to create a convenient handheld espresso machine, the Minipresso is now under production.
Hugo Cailleton, founder of Wacaco, has been involved many years in the manufacturing of home espresso machine prior to initiate the development of the Minipresso. The idea of the portable espresso machine crossed his mind during a business trip after having been disappointed by a poor espresso shot in a hotel. However, the path to achieve the dreamed device was not easy. Over ten prototypes were built to test different mechanism, coffee extraction, product interaction and design. With perseverance and hard work, the conception has come a long way and Minipresso was finally close to expectations.
Today, time has come to put Minipresso in your hands. Crafted with reinforced materials to withstand shocks, Wacaco is proud to offer you an unique portable espresso machine. An innovative creation, durable, built to prepare authentic coffee drinks.
