ZPM Espresso has created the first and only home espresso machine that offers high-end features at a consumer-friendly price. While in pre-sale, the machine brought in over $500K in revenue and established an initial customer base of over 2000 people. The ingenious device has been featured in Forbes, Wired, and Gizmodo and received a glowing endorsement from Jason Dominy, former chair of the Barista Guild.
ZPM is further developing their mobile app and recently hired a VP of Engineering to oversee further hardware and software integration and development. The team has raised $680,000 in funding from private investors and angel groups. Currently 91% funded, the team is raising additional funds to expand their product line.
