Your very own pocket sized Espresso Machine

Ever get the urge for an espresso but unable due to a long meeting? Look no further as this quest has been fulfilled: pocket sized espresso machine. An Instructables.com contributor, Urant, also fascinated by miniaturized objects, posted a design for those caffeine espresso lovers.

Urant’s main requirement, of course, was the espresso machine needing to fit in the pocket of his jeans and keep material costs down to a minimal. Suffice it to say, he accomplished that, and more. (let’s hope Apple has not filed a patent . . .)

I’ve always been fascinated by small things. I remember going to the mall as a kid and seeing all the Hello Kitty mini stuff at Spencers, and being really disappointed that they only made girl stuff (it was years later before they came out with boy stuff) So, when the Pocket Size contest was announced, it really inspired me to design and build something new.

“Mmmmm Ok, now what?” I said to myself.

So I started browsing Instructables, trying to find some inspiration when I remembered that the year before, my Espresso machine had died, and I had played a..round with the idea of building one.

I looked at all the Instructables relating to coffee at the time, but no one had built a machine. The quest ended that Christmas with the gift from my wife – a new espresso machine (I know, she’s really great :D ).

This year, a quick search showed that there were still no Instructables on how to build an Espresso machine….and inspiration came: I would build a pocket sized Espresso Machine.
