What Our Customers Say

"Clean as paper but with the full body and rich flavors of a press pot."

"The quality of the coffee it makes is fantastic and being able to keep the temperature of the coffee hot unlike other presses is a definite plus."

The Espro™ Press Story 

As I struggled with existing brewers to fully express each distinct coffee, I discovered a paradox.

A French press filter is above the grounds. The floating aromatic oils flow through, but so do the fine particles, which make coffee gritty and muddy. A vacuum brewer filter is below the grounds. It makes a very clean cup, but loses the aromatic oils.

The paradox: how to filter consistently from both above and below?

It took us a few years and many tries to solve (see the "how it works" section on this page). And now it’s time to let you try the espro™ press - we look forward to hearing about your pursuit of the perfect cup.

The Espro™ Press

The Espro™ Press helps you make a clean cup, with all of the delicate flavours and aromas that fully express your coffee. You will taste the coffee, and not the grounds. And the cup you drink tomorrow is as good as the cup you drink today.

It is robust enough for home, coffee shop and restaurant use.

How it Works

The Espro™ Press is a precision coffee brewer. It preserves all of the freshly brewed flavours and aromas by micro-filtering twice with a unique metal filter. This micro-filter keeps grounds out of your cup, and lets the aromatic oils in.

Check out our pictorial instruction manual for the large press!

Step 1: Designed for Optimal Brewing

  • Extracts pure flavours by fully mixing grounds and water
  • Keeps temperature constant and hot with vacuum insulation

Step 2: Designed for Optimal Filtering

  • The first micro-filter (a) is vertical and reaches below the layer of grounds to the clean coffee - it also lets the aromatic oils seep through at the top
  • The second micro-filter (b) makes sure your coffee is very clean, so extraction doesn’t continue in your cup

Step 3: Designed for Optimal Enjoyment

  • Precision brewing preserves all of the freshly brewed flavours and aromas, so you can enjoy them again and again
  • The vacuum insulated double walls keep your coffee hot after brewing
  • The buffer between the two filters greatly reduces extraction after brewing
