Mypressi Twist - Espresso on the Go - Powerful Espresso Maker


MyPressi announced the Twist portable espresso maker that is not powered by pumping but by using a pressurize cylinder to power the shot with constant pressure all the way through the extraction cycle. It uses fresh espresso or an ESE pod in the holder, add water, and pull the shot. The CO2 cartridge does the rest, offering a 9-bar pressure across the entire shot. Each cartridge lasts for about 8 shots of espresso. Clearly, a nice design aesthetic with the Twist, and I am looking forward to trying one out. I have one on the way as an early review unit, while the Twist should be available later this year - list price $129.

Full Press release after the jump.....

Espressi, Inc. Tells Espresso Drinkers, "Take It To Go." Literally.

The mypressi TWIST™, the world's first state-of-the-art handheld espresso machine, debuts at the

21st Annual Specialty Coffee Association of America Conference & Exhibition

ATLANTA (April 16, 2009) - Today Espressi, Inc. unveiled the mypressi TWIST™, a revolutionary new espresso maker that will change the way America drinks coffee. Using a unique pneumatic engine, the sleek perfectly-portable mypressi TWIST eliminates the coffee-line wait, the high price tag for quality machinery and the on-the-road "where am I going to get my coffee" quandary. Debuting this week at the 21st Annual Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) Conference & Exhibition, the mypressi TWIST is expected to hit store shelves this fall and sell for approximately $129 MSRP.

"The mypressi TWIST is the first portable, personal espresso maker to deliver superior espresso quality - anytime, anyplace. Our revolutionary patent-pending pneumatic delivery system provides the ideal espresso extraction pressure without manual pumping," states Stephen O'Brien, Espressi, Inc. CEO and creator of the mypressi TWIST. "The TWIST has exceeded expectations by consistently delivering espresso with ideal aroma, flavor, color and crema; all from a small one-pound machine. This really is the first quality espresso machine that allows you to say, 'I'll take it to go'. I invite any coffee connoisseur or barista to put the mypressi TWIST to the test."

Stylish, lightweight and effortless to use, the TWIST has no need for external power, making it an ideal portable companion for the creation of delicious espresso or espresso-based drinks. Delivering superior power in a machine that is small and light enough to fit easily into a briefcase, backpack or handbag, the mypressi TWIST is notably different from other handheld machines on the market. The TWIST delivers a precise - and consistent - 135 psi (pounds per square inch), or just more than nine bars of pressure throughout the entire shot. This is the ideal pressure for perfect espresso extraction, ensuring the shot is at its peak in flavor, aroma and color.

Working equally well with fresh coffee grounds or ESE coffee pods (with optional adaptor) the mypressi TWIST uses small standardized gas cartridges--commonly used for whipped cream or soda water--and hot water to create its signature shot. A single cartridge produces approximately four double shots of espresso for just cents per shot, making the TWIST as cost effective as it is convenient.

To operate the mypressi TWIST, simply insert a cartridge into the pressure chamber, fill the basket with fresh ground coffee or a coffee pod, and fill the upper compartment with hot water. With a simple pull of the trigger the TWIST produces one or two shots of espresso perfection ready to be enjoyed alone, or as the base for any coffee beverage. The TWIST has an easy-to-clean design that is also dishwasher safe, ensuring even after months of use that there are no left over oils to oxidize or spoil subsequent shots.

I am from Puerto Rico and got my Mypressi Twist through Coffee World Puerto Rico: http://www.coffeeworldpuertorico.ecrater.com I received my Mypressi Twist about a week ago. The first impression is that this Mypressi Twist is just nicely built. Making espresso is very easy, and it takes a minute or so to make a cup. I was also impressed with the coffee. Believe me for a portable machine, coffee was great. Now my Mypressi Twist substituted my Krups machine. I use Island Joe’s ESE pods and Lavazza Grand Crema. A good hint is: to make sure the espresso has an ok temperature, I heat up my cup as well as the water container adding the boiling water and then adding the water to make the coffee. I always fill a bit more water (a few drops more) so the ESE pods gets soaked before extraction. And it really takes a click on the trigger, no big deal. With this I get a great espresso and crema too. I recommend buying ESE pods buy bulks of 100 or 150, it gets cheaper. The unit works best with the standard 14g E.S.E pod also works great with ground coffee. The gas cartridge should be purchased through them too.Enjoy!!!
