"The excitement at the annual SCAA Expo to sample the TWIST simply blew us away. The 'Best Product' award win underscores our belief that the TWIST pours some of the best espresso in the market today. We're honored that the SCAA has recognized our hard work and achievement," states Stephen O'Brien, Espressi, Inc. CEO and creator of the mypressi TWIST.
The SCAA is the world's largest coffee trade association. Its annual SCAA Expo represents the largest gathering of coffee professionals in the world. Each year, the "Best New Product" is awarded to companies based upon the overall value of their preparation and serving equipment in enhancing the quality of specialty coffee and tea beverages for the consumer. Judges look for companies introducing new products that showcase industry innovation, as well as superior quality and design. The award was given to Espressi, Inc. on Sunday on the conference show floor in Atlanta.
The only handheld espresso maker to receive the SCAA "Best New Product" Award, the mypressi TWIST has transformed the handheld espresso market with a pneumatically enhanced system that delivers the perfect 135 PSI (pounds per square inch) or nine bars of pressure throughout the entire 24-second duration of the espresso extraction. The small, stylish machine is powered by pressurized air cartridges--typically used for whipped cream and soda water--and creates espresso at its peak, rich with color and superior crema.
The mypressi TWIST is compatible with fresh ground coffee or standard ESE pods. At just cents per shot, the mypressi TWIST offers an anytime, anyplace solution to the common where-will-I-get-my-coffee dilemma.
