Product Review: Espro Press



Espro Press
5+ (translates to "great")

It might just be me, but there seems like there are thousands of different french press-type apparatuses on the market. Personally, I've reviewed traditional glass ones and disposable ones, not to mention a few bodums I've gone through over the years. All operate off the basic concept of a metal mesh plunger trapping the coffee grounds at the bottom of the vessel, letting only the coffee escape into the mug, yet most french press designs never seem to trap the finer, silty grinds which make the final sips of coffee more akin to the reverse of a whale sieving plankton through baleen.

Fortunately, the folks at Espro seem to have found an end to filter failure. The Espro Press, a french press at first glance, sets to improve on the design by changing the metal filter to a super fine double micro-filter with a plastic seal that altogether is supposed to keep all sediment out of the final pour.

The kind folks at Espro sent me out one to field test and after a few infusions, I found their claims to be true. Each cup, brewed 3 minutes (with a brief stirring in the middle) and then gently pressed, produced a remarkably clean cup with no noticeable sediment in consumption or left in the cup at the conclusion (even when I let the press drain extensively). The metal design also kept the coffee insulated while brewing and all of the pieces proved very easy to clean. My only criticism was that it only produced an 8 oz cup of coffee, which works for only one person but would prove inconvenient with guests.

Therefore, if you are on the hunt for a new french press, I would give the Espro Press strong consideration, especially if you're tired of sediment in your cup.

This really is a great french press, my only gripe is that it is small. Kickstarter did a campaign with Espro on a 10 cup version, which I missed. They just started selling them in the US at . currently on back order, but placed an order to get in on the next shipment. Can't Wait.

My one negative is that is cost, but when I compare it to my larger stainless steel frieling french press, it really isn't that big of a con. If the new coffee maker is like its smaller sibling in making a clean cup of french press, the price is certainly worth it.

I will try to remember to post back here when it arrives and I get a week or two of use out of it.
