When we first heard about the Mypressi Twist , we were honestly a bit skeptical. How could you possibly make good espresso with a handheld device? After it was named best product of 2009 by the Specialty Coffee Association of America, we decided to give it a shot (no pun intended), and we were definitely impressed.
The Mypressi Twist uses a N20 canister to pressurize the portafilter to the recommended 9 bars of pressure. It doesn’t require a pump or electricity, just hot water, freshly ground espresso, and the canisters. To use it, just load the portafilter basket, screw the chamber together, and pour hot water into the top chamber. Put one of the included N20 canisters in the handle and pull the trigger.
If you’re the sort of person who likes to camp out but doesn’t want to live without your morning shot, the Mypressi is the perfect device for you! Check out Mypressi’s demonstration video on YouTube.
