About Us

It all started with a simple mission: build the world's best handheld espresso machine. Forget the wires, the pumps, the electrical tethers to the wall. Funnily enough, there weren't any handled espresso machines at the time so innovation was the only option. Extreme innovation. A team of incredibly talented designers and engineers in California pulled it together. Powered by tiny bulbs of gas powered at 600 psi, the TWIST reaches the operational pressures of professional Italian espresso machines (9 bars, 145 psi) in absolute silence with the squeeze of a trigger.

Three prototypes were shown at the SCAA Annual Exposition in 2009. The crowd around the booth was five levels deep. And then came the award: Product of the Year (Consumer Products).

Today the TWIST is used by tens of thousands of happily caffeinated customers around the world. It's gone through several rounds of refinement from v1 to v1.9 (also known as "the TWIST, refreshed"), to a v2 that has also gone through continuous internal refinement. (If the improvement isn't outwardly obvious, we don't typically announce it.)

We didn't set out to make the easiest to use espresso machine in the world. There are plenty of options there involving pre-ground coffee capsules, or machines that sell for a lot less but don't make real espresso. We built a product that would deliver the best possible result with no compromises allowed.

So who are we? The home of the mypressi TWIST. The developers of a product that makes people happy.

If you don't yet have a TWIST, we hope you become another happy customer. We work tirelessly to provide the best possible customer service, we can help you with any questions you have (just email support@mypressi.zendesk.com), and we love what we do. We're fairly sure you will too.
