Top 5 Single-Serve Manual Espresso Coffee Makers
Tried and tested espresso best coffee makers in the market right now:
- Aerobie Aeropress Coffee Maker
- MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker
- The Handpresso Wild Hybrid
- ROK Espresso Coffee Maker
- Staresso Coffee Maker
Let’s check them out.
Apart from the obvious caffetiere options, the Aeropress Coffee Maker is another option to consider if you’re in for a more hands-on approach to coffee. It is also the most affordable manual espresso maker in our range.
The Aeropress Coffee Maker is effectively a filter with a ‘press’ that you can depress in order to ‘press’ the coffee out. It is meant to sit on top of a cup or mug and then depress the coffee through the paper filter.
Non-electrical, relying only on hot water and the pressure of a push, the only downside to the Aeropress is the requirement of the filter paper.
The MiniPresso GR uses a bicycle pump action to put hot water through the coffee ground, extracting delicious espresso great for home and when you are out. The single serve, single shot espresso maker is compact and easy to take with you. The pump however is situated on the middle section horizontally to the main barrel instead of the bottom or top vertically. Still it has a sleek modern feel and is easy to operate. When not in use, the pump can be compressed and locked in place and the cover which doubles as a drinking cup, screwed on giving it a small ballistic missile look.

The Staresso takes a vertical approach similar to a french cafetiere for priming and pumping out espresso with the manual pump lever located on top. The pressure barrel is no bigger than a mug and is capable of producing 15 to 20 bar of pressure. It sits on top of a stainless steel cup with see through window. Between the pressure barrel and cup is an accessory holder. You can use a coffee ground filter or milk form maker or both to make your favourite beverage; strong espresso, frothy milk, latte, quick cold brew or french press coffee.
