Our video review of the Espro Press – elegant design, great engineering and wonderful coffee.

First off, a big thank-you to Chris McLean of Espro for sending us an 8-ounce Espro Press.

I really wanted to get my hands on one, for a few reasons.

First, I’m a big fan of simple, elegant design. 

Secondly, I love French press coffee, but have some issues with the traditional French press.

Anyway, I’m getting a little ahead of myself.

The Espro Press is essentially a French press, otherwise known as a press pot.



But there are improvements here. And it’s rare that a simple design like the French Press can be improved in any meaningful way. Usually companies “improve” on existing designs simply by adding a bunch of bells and whistles to make things more “convenient”.

But in this case, everything that is different about the Espro is different for a good reason.

Let’s look at some of those differences.

It’s made from stainless steel, so I won’t have to worry about breaking any more glass French presses.

It has a dual wall, with a vacuum in between, so it keeps the coffee hotter for longer.

It has a unique double micro-filter, so you get all the oils and flavor in your coffee, but with few particles and sludge.

And, just like a regular French press, it is really easy to use and clean up.

There are three Espro Press sizes – 8 ounces, 18 ounces and 32 ounces. They also offer a light-weight travel mug.

Thanks again guys. I’ll be using my new Espro Press a lot!
