Beyond being chosen as one of WIRED Magazine’s ‘Editor’s Top Pick’, the TWIST has earned top honours from The New York Times, Martha Stewart and Gizmodo, to name a few. The Editor of Boing Boing wrote, “Currently in production, the mypressi TWIST has been generating enough buzz to get a trucker from Nashville to Reno (and back). Forget press and blog attention. The portable espresso maker won the best new product award from the Specialty Coffee Association of America (its sorta like the Oscars for coffee”).
The TWIST is an innovation that has revolutionised how and where we enjoy espresso, and as a fellow SCAA award winner, global partner and invention that has changed perceptions of espresso red espresso® brings it to SA; enabling coffee and red espresso lovers to enjoy exceptional (red or black) espresso anytime, anyplace whether at home, on holiday, at the office, even on a hike.
(red or black) Espresso Anytime, AnyplaceThe stylish, smart and award-winning mypressi TWIST is a lightweight, hand-held espresso maker that, perfectly portable, is small enough to fit snug into a backpack, briefcase or desk drawer and ensures that wherever you are in the world and whatever you are doing you will never have to find yourself in a situation where you cant get a decent cuppa, whenever you want one!
And, despite its size, portability and exceptionally reasonable price tag, it delivers exceptionally too giving even the most premium and sought-after home espresso machines a real run for their money.
Using all commercial parts and operating at 9 bars of pressure, the nifty TWIST requires no external power: no plug point, no electricity. Instead, it obtains its 9 bars of pressure from recyclable, affordable and easily-accessible gas cartridges (the same ones used in whipped cream canisters for years). Locked in the TWIST, one cartridge has sufficient pressure to produce four double (or eight single) shots of (red or black) espresso. A patent-pending pneumatic engine regulates the cartridge to extract a shot at perfect pressure; resulting in the ideal (red or black) espresso extraction, time after time.
Requiring only hot water, ground coffee, red espresso® or an ESE pod, all you need to do is pull the trigger and, voila, within seconds, it expresses a perfect (red or black) espresso shot which you can enjoy straight up or use it to make a range of delicious coffee and or red espresso-based drinks; from red cappuccinos and coffee mochas to iced lattes and red shakes, espressotinis, macchiatos and more. Whats more is that you dont necessarily need to use water Unlike other espresso machines, you can use the TWIST to extract or infuse (red or black) espresso using alcohol, liqueurs or other liquids to produce amazing, never-before-thought-of concoctions. For this reason, chefs love it!
Clean-up is just as easy as pulling a shot: give the TWIST a quick rinse and youre done.
So, whether its starting your morning with a kickstart of caffeine (black) or boost of antioxidants (red); looking to perk up during the day with a (black) americano at your desk or wind down with a (red) latte at night, the TWIST ensures that wherever you are and whatever your preference youll never have to be without exceptional espresso; even on the go.
With international fame and acclaim ranging from World Barista Championship judges to the media and winning a multitude of awards, the TWIST is the must-have portable espresso maker for those seeking truly delicious espresso, anytime, anyplace, anywhere and whether you want it red or black.
