Simpresso generates pressure from 15 to 19 bars (217 to 275 PSI). The hand operated piston has consistently maintained at least a minimum 15 bar pressure on each extraction. The more you lift the piston, the more pressure is generated.

A prototype with a pressure gauge attached, you can see Simpresso generated a very stable pressure in between 15-20 Bars on each press. This is no doubt the extracted espresso quality from Simpresso is great!

STRETCH GOALS REWARDS   

We believe all pledgers here will help us to spread out our nice concept/idea and share with their friends or social media. All these efforts from pledgers will be rewarded when we meet our stretch goals.

 PROJECT SCHEDULE  

Simpresso is 100% ready for mold making if the campaign is successfully funded. The prototype had been checked and tested hundred times already. 3D computer modeling had been checked and planned for mold making. Materials of each part had been selected and confirmed by our team.    Lead time of the mold making is 45 days, we may need 2-3 weeks for parts fitting and mold polishing afterward. We will start mass production after the pre-production samples are tested and approved by our team.

Thank you so much for your support, and we're excited you're along for the journey!

Risks and challenges

Unlike most Kickstarter projects, we've been working on Simpresso for years prior to this campaign launch. Our R&D team has solved all problems and challenges we found on more than 10 designs we had made, and we trust the final design of the Simpresso is the best portable espresso maker in the market.
With our experience in manufacturing and shipping, we are confident to say the Simpresso project will go smooth and deliver to all pledgers with a high quality standard.
We will keep all pledgers updated on the project from 1st shot testing samples to final mass production, and food contact safe test (FDA for US and LFGB for EU) result, BPA free test result and all information about the project.
