The first single dose, no retention grinder was shown in 2005 at the Seattle SCAA show. This was the Versalab M3. The M3 series remains the first in quality of flavor and continues to bring delight in homes and cafes around the world. Our careful treatment of the coffee throughout grinding preserves and reveals the essence of the beans and roast.
Versalab has been developing espresso equipment [and for all coffees] since 2002, always holding fast to "first principles". Over this time, we have created considerable innovations, many now widely embraced by the specialty coffee industry.
The PRESS was developed in order to accurately and repeatably compress espresso grounds. A necessity for consistent espresso.
