The French press has long been lauded as the perfect method for making coffee, allowing coffee to be immersed in water then strained with a plunger filter. The Espro press represents the first significant upgrade to the press brewing method in decades. It uses a unique metal micro-filter to filter coffee twice, preserving the flavor by letting coffee oils in and keeping coffee grit and fines out.
DESIGNED FOR EXCELLENCE IN BREWING
The Espro press uses the immersion method that extracts the fullest, purest flavors from coffee by fully mixing the water and coffee grounds. The vacuum-insulated double-wall brewer maintains the precise brewing temperature for optimal extraction.
INNOVATIVE FILTERING FOR A CLEAN, FULL-BODIED CUP
Espro’s unique filter design uses two-stage filtration to trap grinds and filter out even the finest coffee sediment to produce a clean cup. Because the filter screens are metal rather than paper, they allow the flavorful coffee oils into your cup, delivering both full body and flavor.
QUALITY STAINLESS STEEL CONSTRUCTION
Tall, slim and gleaming, the stainless steel Espro press looks as good on the table as the coffee tastes in your cup. The double-walled vacuum press pot keeps your coffee hot after brewing, so you can take your time enjoying your first cup and have a second cup waiting and ready.
It started with a tamper. In 2002, Bruce Constantine and Chris McLean met over coffee to try to resolve a common barista problem: designing a tamper that ""clicked"" at the ideal 30 pounds of force. The solution seemed simple enough. The pair sketched out the basics of the Calibrated Tamper on the back of a napkin. The sketch touched off a 2-year-long journey that culminated in the Calibrated Tamper, Espro's first product, introduced in 2004. The journey also raised many more problems in search of solutions, as well as the will and the creativity to seek out those solutions and make them happen. Espro's goal is summed up in the fourth point of the company's 5-point manifesto: Our coffee equipment should work and be easy to learn, teach and use. Creating perfect coffee drinks requires both art and science. To that end, Espro's founders have made it their mission to create equipment that handles the science so that you can focus on the art. Their coffee-making tools are designed with scientific questions in mind--how to keep coffee at the right temperature, what it takes to remove the mud from press coffee, how to let a barista know when they've tamped the espresso perfectly--and deliver the answers through meticulously designed and exquisitely crafted equipment that ensure brewing coffee will be the true pleasure it was always meant to be. Today, Espro's product line includes a foaming pitcher designed specifically for foaming milk and pouring latte art, the Calibrated Tamper that tells you when you've hit the sweet spot, and the Espro Press, the first major design makeover of the French press in 30 years, which was funded through Kickstarter and may be one of the most eagerly awaited coffee brewers in history.
