VICTOR, N.Y.–Importika has become the exclusive distributor for the Handpresso brand in the United States.
The company, which distributes Gaggia espresso makers and the Teaposy line of tea-related products, is launching the arrangement with the introduction of the Handpresso Wild. This product is a handheld espresso machine and produces cups of espresso using Easy Serving Espresso pods, which contain coffee brands such as Illy and Lavazza, to produce single espresso cups. The machine measures slightly larger than a Swiss army knife, according to a statement from Importika, meaning that it can be used at home or taken by the user on business or personal trips.
Handpresso is based in France. Importika will feature the Handpresso Wild at the tabletop market in New York, where it will be in the temporary exhibit area.
