A portable espresso machine

The Mypressi Twist fits in your briefcase and lets you take espresso wherever you go.

The Mypressi Twist Espressi

If you need an espresso to start your day, Espressi had you in mind when the company designed the Mypressi Twist. The Mypressi Twist is a portable espresso maker that ensures you have a fresh espresso any time you want one, without having to lug around a full-size espresso machine. To use it, you place fresh espresso or an ESE pod in the holder, add water, and pull your shot. The Mypressi Twist uses a pressurized cylinder, rather than pumping, to power a shot through the extraction cycle with constant pressure. The CO2 cartridge used to create that pressure will last for approximately eight shots of espresso. After that, you'll need to swap in a new cartridge. The Mypressi Twist does not need any external power.

The Mypressi Twist isn't quite pocket-size, but it will fit in a briefcase or purse easily. While a brief rinse is generally enough to clean off the Mypressi Twist before you put it back in your bag, the whole thing is dishwasher safe, making it easy to keep clean. Leftover residue won't be spoiling your next shot of espresso. The Mypressi Twist is priced at $129, but with the minimal cost of making your own espresso, that price is worth it.
