The Cafflano Kompresso -- a combination of the two words 'compress' and 'espresso' -- is the world's most compact and lightest portable espresso maker. It uses a hydraulic compression system to boost the force of extraction, which creates a delicious, smooth espresso!
Most portable espresso makers on the market use a manual pneumatic compression design, an air-pump type compression. In many cases, this type of system is unable to retain the necessary high pressure throughout the entire extraction process. The hydraulic compression system used for the Cafflano Kompresso uses hot water instead of air, which can consistently amplify force to achieve over 9 bars of pressure, and a full-bodied espresso.
