Product Description

While the first edition of MyPressi's Portable Espresso Maker was sturdy, the company has raised the bar a bit higher with its updated MyPressi TWIST Portable Espresso Maker 2.0. How? With this iteration, MyPressi has done everything from tightening the fit between the lower bowl and frame to increasing the trigger strength, thus giving us more confidence in this travel-ready machine's durability. Still containing the flexibility found in the 1.0 version, the MyPressi TWIST 2.0 continues to impress with many of the features we found useful in the original model, including the ability to use the regular basket for espresso fine-grind and the pressurized basket for course-grind or to produce ideal shots on the go or at home using the ESE pod baskets. With this portable machine, the key to the best shot is to make sure all of its components are warmed properly, which enables you to pull a shot rivaling that of a home espresso machine.

How the MyPressi TWIST Portable Espresso Maker Works

Utilizing a compressed gas cartridge (nitrous oxide), the TWIST 2.0 extracts using either regular espresso grind, pods or a coarse/variable grind with a pressurized basket.

  • Insert one N2O cartridge into the handle and seal shut
  • Pre-heat all the components -- soak your chosen basket, fill the water reservoir and your glass(es) with boiling water
  • Dry the basket and put in the coffee of your choice -- tamp if necessary
  • If necessary, bring water to a hard boil again
  • Empty all pre-heated components and twist reservoir into place
  • Fill reservoir with hot water and seal lid
  • Pull trigger in handle and watch your extraction begin!

Features & Functionality of the MyPressi TWIST Portable Espresso Maker

The TWIST 2.0 comes with an excellent selection of accessories, including:

  • Pressurized Double Shot Basket: Pressurized basket can hold 14 - 21 grams and is for use with either coarser coffee or coffee that has a variable grind (inconsistent particle size).
  • Standard Double Shot Basket: Regular double shot holds 14 - 21 grams of coffee and is for use with a more traditional, finer and even espresso-style ground coffee.
  • ESE Pod/Single Basket: This basket holds either a standard ESE pod or 7 grams of traditional, finer and more even espresso-style ground coffee.
  • 53mm Tamper: You'll need to tamp your coffee when using both the non-pressurized and pressurized baskets for ideal results.
  • N2O Pressure Cartridges: Includes a starter set of (4) 8g nitrous oxide cartridges.
  • Travel Pouch: Keep all your gear in an easy-to-transport, branded bag.
  • Rubber Coaster: Protect your counter top during tamping or catch drips with this little rubber disk.
  • Gasket Kit: All the required O-rings you'll need for future replacements.
  • Flexible - You have the option with the TWIST 2.0 to use grounds, pods or pressurized or non-pressurized cartridges.
  • Metal Design - Since you don't have a big machine to back you up, consistent temperature is difficult to achieve with some portable espresso makers. This one incorporates a lot of metal that helps you to effectively pre-heat the components to maintain even temperature throughout the extraction.
  • Metal Design - The TWIST Portable Espresso Maker's metal-heavy construction can also be a drawback, too, as you will need to get it all up the appropriate temperature.
