The little gadget, called the A Modo Mio Espressego, is designed to sit upright in a car's cupholder and should take just under two minutes to deliver an espresso into a 50ml cup, once it's been connected to the vehicle's 12-volt socket and water has been added.
And to make sure that the car's cabin doesn't become littered with coffee grinds, the gadget is designed to work exclusively with the company's coffee capsules -- 10 flavors of which are currently available.
The A Modo Mio Espressego weighs less than 1kg (880g) and as it comes with its own carrying bag, taking it with you on your travels, whether in the car, a camper van or even a boat, isn't a problem. Nor is using it at home as long as you have a 12-volt socket adapter.
It is available to order now in select European territories as a 'starter kit' for $129.99 in the UK and $149 in Italy, Spain and Portugal. The price includes the device, a carrying bag and 16 A Modo Mio coffee capsules.
