Hot Shot

Good things come in small packages, as the clever folks at Wacaco surely knew when they released a smaller version of the brand’s portable espresso machine. At 13 centimetres long and weighing only 290 grams, the Minipresso NS2 is compatible with original Nespresso capsules. Several pumps of the pop-out piston will produce a rich shot of espresso topped with golden crema. $89.90,

Light Relief

Combining rugged construction and clever design, Samsonites C-Lite suitcase provides a smoother and lighter travel experience. Made in Europe, the innovative Curv® technology hardshell is both impact resistant and feather light. The double wheels and elongated pull handle make navigating a crowded airport a breeze, while the integrated USB port allows for charging on the go. C-Lite bags also come with a 10-year limited warranty. From $489,
