Wacaco has introduced the Pipamoka, a travel-sized filtered coffee maker that uses vacuum pressure. Wacaco is the Hong Kong-based manufacturer of the Minipresso and Nanopresso travel espresso makers.
According to the company, the Pipamoka features a twisting mechanism that ignites vacuum pressure to enable consumers to make a full cup of coffee in two minutes.
Consumers can insert ground coffee into the Pipamoka’s dedicated filter basket, add hot water, and drop the filter basket to the bottom of the vessel. Once the twisting mechanism is activated, vacuum pressure is created inside the travel mug. This negative pressure generates a suction force that draws hot water downwards through the coffee grounds, said the company. The coffee is then brewed directly into the insulated thermal cup where it will stay hot for hours.
“We’ve spent over two years developing this patented coffee maker, and we’re thrilled to finally share it with our fans all over the world who have asked us for a travel-friendly way to make filter-style coffee on their adventures,” said Hugo Cailleton, co-founder of Wacaco. “Between the all-in-one design, the vacuum pressure features and the ability to extract long coffee, cold brew or espresso-style coffee, the Pipamoka is a truly unique brewer that will help all kinds of coffee lovers enjoy their preferred coffee drinks anytime, anywhere.”
The Pipamoka is available for a suggested retail price of $46.90.
