A couple minor quibbles aside, the build quality on this thing is phenomenal. Heavy chrome plated copper makes up the majority of the construction, just like on a nice espresso machine. All of the pieces exude quality and fit together very well, except for the cap that hold the nitrous cartridge in (the metal parts don't quite line up when screwed all the way on) and the lower hemisphere (it's made entirely of plastic, except for the spout, and fits a bit loosely). I don't ever use the lower part anyway, so it's not that big a deal. Mypressi includes a spare set of o rings, a few baskets to choose from, and 4 nitrous cartridges to get your espresso on right away.
I use it primarily in class, with a hot pot to boil the water, and Lavazza Gran Crema espresso pods (as per suggestions in other reviews). I can make a very decent shot of espresso in about 3 minutes, start to finish. It seriously makes some of the best short americanos I've ever had (equal parts hot water and espresso).
One thing I noted, it definitely benefits from using water as hot as you can get it. Just today I used my microwave to heat the water past the boiling point, and I got a little better results than I usually get with the hot pot. This dorm rat is now happy, caffeinated, and not paying the coffee shop for mediocre coffee :)
I soak the unit in boiling water while I am grinding and dosing and I have no temperature issues (that I can taste in the shot anyway). It would be nice to make the o-ring a little more secure and it would also be nice to have some kind of way to tell how much pressure is left in a cartridge. Those are the only drawbacks I have experienced with the mypressi.
After a short introduction period I can now pull shots that are better
then the shots I pull with my $2K home unit.
Yes it takes some work, yes you will need a good burr grinder, yes you will need
to dial it in,yes you need fresh good coffee, yes you need to preheat the water bowl and the cup.... but
if you are willing to do all that it will give you amazing results every time.
Unit is built very well.
I can see it being used day after day for years. (simplicity rules!)
Easy to clean up.
For those who only get 1 or 2 cups per charge contact the manufacturer
they will send you an upgraded end cap that will take care of the problem.
The unit will do 4 double shots on one charge within 48 hours.... at minimum.
Yes, the O rings fall out sometimes when I wash the unit but I just worked it into my
routine to place my thumb on the O ring while washing it.
Top quality espresso from a $150 device?
As unbelievable as it may sound the answer is a definitive YES!
The Mypressi is very well made and feels solid. It's evident that care was taken during design- all pieces fit together nicely and seams line up providing a nice presentation. The instructions provided are clear and simple.
From the time it took to unpack the Mypressi to my first double espresso being pulled was about 2 minutes including the 25 second pull time. Disassembly was equally quick and easy. The clean up was minimal and the Mypressi could easily be used during a hectic morning or on the go.
Three baskets were provided, I learned that the "pressurized basket" works best with espresso ground using the machine at the grocery store. The grounds didn't quite get fine enough to use the "standard basket." Luckily the instructions have a well laid out FAQ for situations like this. The water bowl has a very good marking inside of it so there's no guess work involved when adding water for a single or double shot.
The espresso produced was very impressive. To put it simply, my local coffee shop just lost a customer.
Every aspect of this product makes sense and its really clear that the inventors thought it through. Overall, the Mypressi far exceeded my expectations. It's well made, simple to use, and makes really good espresso!
