About The Brand

Launched in 2013, Shishapresso® changes the way you smoke your shisha, by introducing a first of its kind, patent pending application. The shisha industry has remained mostly unchanged for centuries but Shishapresso® brings modern convenience to this timeless tradition. You can now set up your shisha in seconds with ease and no mess! With Shishapresso®’s innovative capsule you can set up your shisha in three easy steps: shake the capsule, peel off the top and bottom stickers, and then place the capsule on top of your shisha. It’s that simple.

The unique capsule design reduces heat absorption, making it easier to handle during and after smoking your shisha. It even traps the flavors in the tobacco, meaning you can use the same shisha for multiple flavors and cleaning is much easier. The capsule is also shaped in a way that makes it easy to grip, handle and remove and has a hollow inner shape that creates an effortless smoke.

Shishapresso®’s edge doesn’t stop here. Quality is at the heart of Shishapresso®. We never settle for anything less than the best tobacco. The high quality tobacco we use is what makes Shishapresso® so satisfying and pleasing to the senses. We source only the finest European grade Virginia leaves. Even our blends only use the finest natural ingredients to perfectly complement the hand selected natural Virginia tobacco leaves. The result is a well-balanced experience that seamlessly combines the richness of sweet Virginia notes with the natural flavors of your choice.

With Shishapresso® you will enjoy an unforgettable, convenient and consistent smoking experience. This is ensured by packing the right amount of tobacco, the right texture, and our unique foil hole pattern.
