The Calibrated Tamper Story

In 2002 I bought a really expensive espresso machine and I still made really bad coffee. The engineer in me got mad (and curious).

Research, trials, tests, prototypes and inventions ensued, and Espro was born of the idea that if you can’t make a great cup every time, something is wrong! It seems to me that we owe it to ourselves, and to the farmers and artisan-roasters that labored to put the perfect beans in your hands, to always try to make the best possible cup.

Drink up!
