The Mypressi Twist V2 portable espresso machine was a great innovation when it was introduced a few years ago. It won a best product award from the SCAA, and has proven to be popular amongst many of the world's top baristas.
The Mypressi lets you brew a true double shot without the need for any electricity (if you heat your water with flame and hand grind your espresso). You can get as much as 16g or more coffee into the basket. It also uses those little NO2 cartridges you normally use for making whipped cream, and one cartridge gives you up to 4 doubles of espresso. The Mypressi comes complete with a pressurized filter basket, a non pressurized basket and an ESE pod adapter. This makes the Mypressi much more versatile in how it can be used.
This is a continually developing product; Mypressi has recently done some major upgrades to the valve systems and overall machine to make it work even better than in the past. Look for new upgrades in the future, many that should be compatible with the Mypressi you buy today.
