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, alternativebrewing.com.au.
