THE SPECIALTY COFFEE SHOT

We took the heart of the commercial espresso machines, the wide portafilter, and re-imagined it for the palm of your hand. Tweak your grind, add hot water, and pull a deliciously creamy, barista-level, double espresso.

SMALL BREWER,
BIG FLAVOR

Take command of your espresso, at home and beyond, with a ground-breaking espresso maker that doesn’t sacrifice shot quality for portability.

TRULY COMPACT

Far from the traditional espresso machine format, the Picopresso fits in the palm of your hand. But don't let its tiny size fool you. It's a real concentration of power, able to outperform many of its big brothers.

Dimensions
4.15 IN / 10.5 CM

PRO-LEVEL ESPRESSO

The Picopresso produces emblematic creamy shots with dense flavors and stunning aromas. A signature extraction once reserved to bulky, heavy countertop espresso makers.

Weight
0.77 LB / 350 GRAMS

BREW LIKE A PRO

With the Picopresso there are no shortcuts. Each home brewer must master the art of manual espresso making by dialing in the correct grind size, tamping, and perfecting pulling technique – their reward; an authentic cafe-quality espresso that will rival any high-end machine.

DELICIOUS DOUBLE SHOT

Don’t settle for mediocre coffee when you need a serious kick. Brew a full double shot of espresso with the wide 52mm stainless steel basket.

Basket Capacity
4 TSP / 18 GRAMS

NAKED PORTAFILTER

Ever wondered what your favorite coffee would taste like as a barista espresso? Now you don’t have to.

Water Tank Capacity
2.7 FL OZ / 80 ML

30 SECONDS TO CREMA

Add espresso ultra-fine coffee to the basket, tamp, preinfuse for 8 seconds and reach a pressure of 9-12 bars during extraction. Watch your espresso fall from the naked portafilter into your cup, breath in the aroma of a well balanced Picopresso shot. That's all it takes to reach perfection.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

In 2014, the Minipresso was the first portable espresso machine to use single hand powered piston. This ground breaking achievement has redefined the category of handheld portable espresso makers. Over the time, we have redesigned and improved every aspect of the core technology that power our machines. The newly engineered pumping system of the Picopresso is more reliable and capable than ever, giving you the possibility to extract professional grade espressos.

Maximum Pressure
261 PSI / 18 BARS

BUILT LIKE A TANK

Designed for reliability, the Picopresso is the ultimate portable espresso machine. Made from metals and robust materials its crafting quality is second to none.

Warranty
2 years

“Takes me back to being a barista.”

“Like behind the bar of the café, I’ve been able to run a wide range of coffees through the Picopresso: different origins, roast profiles, processes, and grind sizes to get a really balanced espresso with nice texture and a complexity that I’ve honestly only tasted in some of my favourite coffee shops.”

- Brodie Vissers, coffee professional -

FAQs

How is the extraction and flavor?

The Picopresso, thanks to the wide commercial coffee basket and super-fine coffee grounds, produces an extraction akin to a lever espresso machine: rich, syrupy, and balanced.

Does the portafilter use a pressurized head?

No, the Picopresso does not use a pressurized head. To achieve the best results, fine-tune the coffee grind size according to your shot’s flavor.

Does the pumping require a lot of force?

At the max 18 bar pressure (261 psi) you will need to press the knob with a force equal to 13 kg (28.66 lbs). To easily apply that force, we recommend to hold Picopresso with two hands as instructed in our user guide.

Does the Picopresso heat up the water?

No. In order to make your coffee, you will have to fill the chamber with boiling water.

Is the Picopresso dishwasher safe?

No, but cleaning the espresso maker is fast and simple. Just carefully rinse the coffee basket and the shower head with running warm water and wipe with a humid cloth. After cleaning, let all the Picopresso parts dry separately.

Is the Picopresso microwave safe?

No. The Picopresso is designed with stainless steel parts that are not microwave safe.

Does the Picopresso meet safety standards?

Picopresso complies with major international safety approvals (FDA, EU, RoHS, LFGB, GB) regarding food contact materials. Plastic materials, in contact with food, used in the manufacturing of the Picopresso are listed BPA free.

Does Picopresso have a warranty?

We warrant the Picopresso against defects that are due to faulty materials or workmanship for a period of 24 months from the date of purchase.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes of course. Please note, we are not responsible for any taxes and/or duties accumulated during the shipping process (see our shipping policy).
