GSI Outdoors 4 Cup Stainless Mini Espresso Review

Find The GSI Outdoors 4 Cup Stainless Mini Espresso 

Camping GearEspresso is a great way to wake up in the morning, but when you are looking at all the camping gear on the market not a lot of it is going to be directed towards the espresso making gear. I know this may seem like it is a challenge to find the right way to make the coffee, but this is often overcome by going to the store and buying a piece of gear that you will make work for your needs. While this is a good method, it may not provide you with the complete fulfillment you would like to have the espresso you would like to drink each morning. Since this is the case, GSI Outdoors has decided to address this issue by providing the GSI Outdoors 4 Cup Stainless Mini Espresso maker that is easy for you to use on the go and make sure you are going to have a great cup of espresso to start your morning off. We decided, to see if this was a good product or not and have provided a complete review of the product to see if it lives up to the hype or not.

Features Of The GSI Outdoors 4 Cup Stainless Mini Espresso Maker

  • This is a product that obviously is going to have a 4 cup capacity in the amount of water that it is going to be able to hold. This will make it easier for you to have a good measure for the amount of coffee you will need to make the drinks the strength you want to have. So this is going to be a great product that you are going to love because it does have the proper amount of water to make it easier for you to get the drink strength you want to have.
  • With the construction of this product, you will notice it is made out of the Glacier Stainless Steel. This may not seem like it is going to be that important, but this is a high-quality grade of stainless steel that is going to make it easier for you to have a great product that is going to last you for a long period of time. This means that even if you think the price is a little bit on the higher side, you will see the amount of time it is going to last you before you need to replace it is going to be well worth the cost.
  • The speed at which the machine is going to brew the coffee is something that you are really going to like. You may have never thought about this before, but when you are looking at some of the machines you will think they are going to brew quickly, but end up shocked when they are not brewing nearly as fast as what you would expect them to. With this machine, if you have the proper heating on your stove you have a chance for it to get all the brewing done within a time frame of 2 minutes or so.
  • When you look at this you will find that it is meant for the smaller stoves. This is going to allow you to have the product on the camping stove and know that it is going to work for your camping trip. The difference is you will notice this is going to work on larger stoves as well if you need to have them working for this needs as well. Which greatly improves the versatility of the product and means you do not have to use this for only camping.


What I Like About This Mini Espresso Maker

Well, I have to admit that I love the fact this is a great product that is going to fit on almost all of the cooking surfaces I have in my home. While I typically get the cast iron cookware for the same reason of the versatility of the product working for all the needs that I have, I like the fact this is one that is going to work for everything that I cook on as well. This is going to make it easier for me to get the product and know that I am not going to be stuck using it just for camping.

The shots this espresso maker makes is going to be among some of the strongest you can get. I know that I like my coffee a little bit on the strong side and this is going to be one of the stronger cups that I really like to have and know that it is going to work for what I want to have. However, what you will find is this is a great way for you to get good quality coffee you are going to love and may even have to get some water added into it for it to be tolerable to drink if you are not used to drinking the stronger coffee like I am.

 

Finally, I really like the fact this is a product that is going to be working for a long period of time. I know that I never really thought about this before, but this is a product that is going to be rather long lasting and this makes it easier for me to have a product that I can use without having to worry about it breaking on me like I do with the electric coffee makers that I buy that end up wearing out after just a short time period.

What I Did Not Like With The Mini Espresso Maker

Okay, I have to admit one of the things that I did not really care for with this is the tube that sticks up to get broken off while packing it for camping. Now, this has not happened to me, but I can see where it can happen to someone if they are not really paying attention because to be honest, the tube is easy to overlook if you are not really looking for it and considering it does stick up can be broken or bent when you are getting the camping gear packed.

My Final Thoughts On The GSI Outdoors 4 Cup Stainless Mini Espresso Maker

Okay, I have to say that I like the fact this can be used on several different types of cooktops. This is going to make it easier for me to use this in several different locations. However, I did not care for the fact that it is smaller for home use, but for camping use this is perfect. Since this is the case, I would have to say the GSI Outdoors 4 Cup Stainless Mini Espresso Maker is a decent one to use and definitely something you can enjoy to make yourself a great cup of espresso while camping.
