Leverpresso is fully hand-operated and encompasses an adjustable pressure range of one to nine bars, which allows users to have full control over the brewing process and the taste of their coffee. Inspired by the classic lever machine, Leverpresso is able to exert maximum pressure with minimum force to produce consistently flavorful espressos.

Unlike other hand-held coffee makers, Leverpresso can maintain steadily high pressure without the use of pumps, screws, or electricity. The lever is simple and effective. Leverpresso can also produce double shot espressos, although most similar products only make single shot espressos.

With Leverpresso, coffee enthusiasts will have the ability to make various types of coffee, such as lattes, cappuccinos and americanos. Instructions on how to formulate these drinks will be made available exclusively on their Kickstarter page.

Leverpresso is made of premium materials and is offered in four elegant colors: white, dark grey, baby blue, and baby pink. The small and sleek design values simplicity and convenience.

Pre-order of Leverpresso is now available through the product’s Kickstarter page ( It is a consumer-ready product, and those who have tested the device report positive experiences, many of which can be seen on their Kickstarter page. During the campaign, Leverpresso can be purchased for $59 as the Early Bird Special price. When the campaign funding goal is achieved, the company anticipates manufacturing and delivery to be complete in January of 2018.
