MyPressi Twist is taking pre-orders for a unique, hand-held, espresso machine that promises an outstanding cup without the need to plug in a bulky machine. The Twist uses pneumatic pressure, via re-chargeable Co2 cartridges, throughout the extraction cycle. The CEO of MyPressi promises that his little caffeine stick provides tons of crema and real espresso goodness all for under $129.00. The Twist requires the user to boil water and either use pre-ground espresso beans or espresso pods. I’ve yet to try MyPressi Twist, but the technology and end product look impressive! If you don’t want to spend $129.00, however, there’s always stovetop espresso!
A competing product which I have experience using is the Handpresso Wild ESE, see my review and photos here.
