Nanospresso

Has anyone tried this coffee maker? I have heard good things about it and about to buy but would like any opinions if possible.

Nope. Have a Nespresso at home.

Looks too much like work to me. At least the same amount of work as a $29 Moka espresso maker ( which I carry in the trailer, but never get around to using ).

Interesting device … I'd like to hear from someone who has one …. I don't know what the dilution amount is to convert the espresso to coffee but the description says that the 'water' tank holds 80 ml of water .... that converts to 2.7 oz if you can get all the water out of the grounds …. not even a 1/2 cup. With the amount of half/half that I like in my coffee, its amount may be fine.

At home I like my French press but on the trailer, I really like my Aeropress. Favorite thing is that you 'eject' the grounds in a plug the size (sort of) of a hockey puck. I like that as I can keep the grounds out of my gray water tank.

I agree. Love my Aeropress in the camper. Good coffee and easy to use.

I agree with those who prefer the Aeropress. I’ve gone the route of various sizes of Melita, also French presses and a coffee filter similar to a Melita that held the coffee grounds until it was released to go through the filter. I’ve never had an electric coffee maker as they all basically heat water then pour it through a filter. The Aeropress is the only coffee maker I use now - at home, in the trailer or in my luggage when traveling by air. I would recommend the “S filter” and a good hand grinder. Great coffee, no disposable filters that filter out the coffee oils and easy to pack and clean.

I use the Aeropress also but my wife has difficulty applying pressure. She uses a pour-over. That is why I was considering the Nanospress.

From what I read on the site linked, you have to pump the Nanopress, like a bicycle pump to get the required pressure, which is why is suggested it sounds like work.
"[SUPER PUMPING SYSTEM] Built around a newly patented pumping system and no battery/electric need, the Nanopresso is powerful. With the help of your hands, a maximum of 18 bars (261 PSI) of stable pressure is created during extraction for unparalleled coffee".

Yes-looks like you can do it with one finger. Mountain Equipment Coop carries them and I am waiting for an opportunity to pay them a visit.

I'm surprised MEC would sell them, given the issue of disposing of Nespresso pods ( which is what it appears to use ).
Have to ask, what's wrong with pour over? No electricity, easy to use, easy to clean and dispose of grounds, makes a full cup ( or two ) or thermos full ( we use a Melita filter holder and Melita thermos ).

It uses NS pods and loose ground coffee. You can get an "extension" to make a double dose so that would be good for 2 cups I would think. Besides Dian not liking to push the Aeropress down, I am concerned about tipping the AP over one morning when I am half asleep and getting scalded. The same with the pour over in a cramped trailer. Probably just minor concerns and I need some excuse to try something different I have watched a few videos and it appears one can pump it with your thumb. I would like to find out just how much pressure is required by the finger to get up to max pressure though. That would be one of the questions I would have if anyone on this forum has used one.
