As a passionate espresso drinker and innate problem solver, Steven Monti decided to unite his obsessions with the formation of Artpresso Design. A company dedicated to advancing the artistry of espresso making through the creation of innovative coffee making tools & products for the coffee industry.
Artpresso Design leverages over 20 years of product creation experience in coffee making tools to produce our distinctive line of innovation products. Additionally, we partner with other passionate creators to realize their product ambitions.
We value relationships and believe great things can come from people working together. So if you are seeking to create entire new coffee making tools or product or desire to distribute Artpresso products, we welcome the opportunity chat.
We consult world barista champions, highly regarded cafe’ owners, and respected espresso machine manufacturers to research opportunities to develop and create products that will enhance and grow the specialty coffee industry. This process provides insight and an empathetic understanding of the problems that can be solved with innovative product design.
Observation and discussion encourages possible solutions and further defines the core problems. This process helps to keep efforts human-centered and human-centered design focuses on users and their needs.
Once we define the problems and have a better understanding of consumer needs, we begin the process of ideation. During the ideation process, we brainstorm on a range of creative ideas and solutions to address the needs and problems. “Out of the box” thinking and leading with innovation are what Artpresso thrives on the most.
After sketching out possible solutions, ideas are shared for feedback and then prototypes are made. Thereafter, 3D models are created to test the product variations and see how they work and what additional function and design changes need to be made.
