Mypressi Twist

April 30, 2009

“The mypressi TWIST is a portable espresso machine. It produces quality espresso while giving espresso lovers convenience and portability. The TWIST’s unique pneumatic engine also ensures you can enjoy incredible coffee even where there is no external power. Just add hot water… ”

The portable espresso maker is powered by using a pressurize cylinder to power the shot with constant pressure all the way through the extraction cycle. It uses fresh espresso or an ESE pod in the holder, add water, and pull the shot. The CO2 cartridge does the rest, offering a 9-bar pressure across the entire shot. Each cartridge lasts for about 8 shots of espresso.
For something more manual try Handpresso. So which is better?

Spin kitchen appliance

A series of kitchen appliances (juicer, blender and coffee grinder), all using a two speed motor that is embedded in the countertop. All appliances are easily connected to the base unit. Not really out of this world innovative but I like the simple form and graphic detail.

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto

November 3, 2006

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, a stylish, multi-coffee capsule system that can make frothy cappuccino, shot of espresso, multilayered latte macchiato or rich caffè lungo. Nice design, look like fat mama.

Using a unique thermoblock system, it heats just the right amount of water every time, meaning you get a freshly made cup of coffee in seconds. It also use a 14 bar integrated pressure system normally found in professional coffee shop machines, forcing water through the ground coffee to make a good cup of wake-me-up.

For me, I like my coffee just black.
