The espresso that this machine can produce is the closest, if not, even better than commercial café espresso. As a former barista, the Picopresso provides a full barista experience like no other portable machines can do. Requiring a bit of care with dosage, grind size and tamping, the Pico will reward you with that creamy golden espresso that even your local café would envy!
Attain total consciousness
Let me start by saying I used an AeroPress exclusively for the better part of 3 years, then graduated to the Wacaco NanoPresso some 4 years ago and never looked back. Until now. I roast my own and am on the never ending quest for the perfect cup of joe. Have I found it yet? Of course not...probably because I never want the quest to end. That said, the Picopresso has upped my game by a magnitude of...well, pick a number above 10! Seriously, the box alone is a masterpiece. That matters because it underscores the company's dedication to detail. Nothing was overlooked in the precision design and manufacture of the Picopresso. Just holding it in your hand, you'll appreciate the fact it is a solid piece of kit. But it really starts to shine when you realize how perfectly everything is machined. It goes together like a Russian Doll set and fits perfectly in the provided leather(ette) zipper case. I truly cannot overemphasize the beautiful design and craftsmanship. Much higher quality than even it's predecessor (Nanopresso) which is impressive. The Picopresso even comes with a funnel ring, distribution tool, small brush and rubber cap for travel. It's going to look suspicious in your carryon to those TSA folks running airport scanners, so you may want to put it in check on if you're in a hurry and don't want to take a chance of being delayed. So how about the coffee it produces? First, you need a really good grinder -- or you'll need to resign yourself to acquiring ultra fine grind off the shelf (like LavAzza). And you must have an accurate gram scale. You can buy those here on Amazon for $15 - $20 bucks, so add that to the bottom line cost. The biggest challenge for me was finding the proper grind size. The Picopresso requires an ultra-fine grind. Think almost powder. I just kept going finer and finer and finer until I finally hit it. How do you know when it's right? Ultimately taste -- not bitter or sour, but a helpful clue is to hit the point where it's just about too hard to squeeze out a shot, and back off the grind size a little. When you find that spot, you'll know it. The taste? Well, honestly it's as good as any commercial espresso I've ever had and frankly, better because as mentioned I roast my own beans and have them dialed in to my own personal taste. The Picopresso would be worth the price just to keep on the shelf as a majestic work of art, but the fact that it serves such an important utilitarian purpose (starting my day) with style, grace and perfection, is over the top. Most of the time I make an Americano in the morning, and hit a nice double espresso later in the morning or early afternoon. Square this up with a Ferrero Rocher and you won't need to caddy for the Dalai Lama like Bill Murray to attain total consciousness. In other words, just get it and "you'll have that going for you, which is nice".
An Absolute Joy to Make Coffee
This is my third Wacaco machine and it takes my coffee to a whole new level of taste and enjoyment. From selecting and grinding the beans to making the coffee you really feel involved in the process and allows to to slow down and just enjoy the moment.
