If you're a big coffee lover, one cup in the morning is probably not enough to get you through the day. But rather than dropping tons of money on coffee while you're out and about, why not invest in a portable espresso maker you can bring anywhere? Over 2,000 Amazon shoppers recommend the Wacaco Minispresso GR Portable Espresso Machine for making your favorite coffee drinks anytime, anywhere.

The mini espresso machine doesn't require batteries or electricity, and you can use any type of coffee grounds. It includes a built-in cup and scoop for the grounds and a 2.35-ounce water tank. As long as you have access to hot water, you can use this coffee maker everywhere from the office to a hotel room to a camping trip.

To use the portable espresso maker, first remove the cup from the top of the gadget and unscrew the portafilter underneath. Next, use the included scoop to add 8 grams of coffee grounds to the filter basket and screw all the pieces back into the top. Now you can remove the water tank from the bottom and add in boiling water up to the line. Once you reattach the water tank, twist the piston in the middle of the gadget counterclockwise to unlock it and pump it over the cup to produce the espresso.
