Mypressi Booth Visit and Photos
Posted by Jon Rosenthal, 2:45pm Permalink to this blog entry

I dropped in on the Mypressi booth, which was right around the corner from Hario. I got a chance to speak to Stephen O'Brian, owner of Mypressi and he told me that they have some truly exciting developments coming out very soon.

Perhaps the biggest news and something not many people know is that a new version of the Mypressi is coming soon that includes a charging station to electrically charge the handle for a couple of shots at a time so you won't need cartridges. It is going to be called the Airo System. Still portable, but as portable as your phone or iPod is - it needs a charge every once in a while (I guess every few shots!).

Mypressi also two other new products coming soon: a nifty little brewing station that holds the unit for convenience. Some people in the past have made these (most notably some competitors in previous Barista competitions), but Mypressi plans to make a more official version that matches the style of the Mypressi espresso brewer. They were also showing off a travel kit / container called the Mypressi Travello.

They were also announcing a fully new version of the Mypressi, a V2 version that uses a rubberized coating to surround the brew chamber that will hold in heat much better than the older models (which have thermoplastic surrounding the brew chamber). They've also addressed the o-ring issue some people have had, and the cartridge leak (on some V1 models).  For kicks, the V2 will also be available in red.

Last, but not least, Mypressi also had some new cups and saucers designed in the Mypressi look. I'm not sure if they will be for sale, but I hope so - they looked very cool!

These are great products by great people, and that seems to be a theme running through this show!
