Burgess Enterprises Debuts the New Teapresso Machine

Burgess Enterprises manufacturer of espresso machines, accessories, carts, kiosks, as well as a consultation and training firm recently announced the debut of the Teapresso Machine. According to the company, the machine can easily and consistently deliver a gourmet quality brewed cup of tea in record time, which is sure to revolutionize the tea industry like the espresso machine revolutionized the coffee industry.

The Teapresso machine, manufactured by Klub, combines German engineering and machinery with expert technology to quickly and easily brew the perfect cup of tea. This technology enables tea to be brewed in record time by applying the same concept of pressure brewing to tea that espresso machines apply to coffee. Some tea brewers presently use their espresso machines to attempt to speed up the brewing process with mediocre results. The Teapresso delivers the correct combination of time, temperature, and pressure to extract the essence out of tea as well as an espresso machine draws it out of ground coffee. The Teapresso is available as both a stand alone tea machine and as combination tea and espresso machine. The combination tea and espresso machine will allow tea and espresso retailers to conveniently sell both espresso and tea drinks all from one machine.
