HOW DOES PICOPRESSO 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
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.
