Espro presses are like no other French press we have seen. The extreme attention to detail, quality, and features are superior to any other French press choices out there. What makes Espro different? It all boils down to two simple yet gamechanging features: its double-filtration system and its vacuum-sealed vessel.
French press coffee is popular because it is a simple and easy method of making coffee that perfectly extracts the full flavor and aromatic oils from freshly ground coffee beans. However, it is common to have a bit of sludge or grit from coffee grounds make its way into your cup. This is because the filter in most models performs its basic function but does not perfectly filter to completely separate all of the coffee grounds from the hot water during brewing and plunging. Not only is the filter used in Espro presses 9 to 12 times finer than any other French press filter currently on the market, but the medium and large size presses feature two of these extra-fine filters. After your hot water passes through these filters, there is no way for any remnants of the beans to sneak through the filter into your freshly brewed coffee. And once you have pressed down to plunge the coffee beans toward the bottom, the filters keep the coffee grounds completely separated from the brewed coffee, so that the flavor profile remains totally pure and constant no matter how long you let the coffee sit. That would be great, you say, but who wants to drink coffee that has been sitting around, and therefore cooling down, for hours? Well, keep reading.
The mirrorlike stainless steel vessel is not only gorgeous on the eyes, it is painstakingly vacuum sealed with special technology to remove any air between the inner chamber and outside wall. The coffee inside the press stays hot for hours, maintaining a consistent temperature as well as flavor due to the workhorse filter inside! However, the outside wall stays cool to the touch.
This means that if you wanted to, you could truly boil your water and brew your coffee as guests arrive for a dinner party, then serve it straight from the Espro press hours later at dessert time. Or simply leisurely sip your way through a pot over the course of a lazy Sunday, with the last cup being just as enjoyable as the first. The design of the press is fit for the finest tabletop, making this a great piece to leave out to admire even when not in use. However, with its durable yet lightweight stainless steel construction, the Espro press is just as comfortable tossed in your backpack for a camping adventure as it is gleaming in candlelight on your dining room table. No more broken carafes— the Espro will be the last French press you buy!
