Thought this could be a good thread for some discusion on the new Large Espro Press.
I received mine in the mail today and it will be making the trek with me to work tomorrow to find out what it can do. I have been using a traditional Bodum french press at work but wanted something that offered aeropress (with the disc) type grit levels with the ability to make a larger volume.
My first impression of the unit however has not been very good. The travel action pushing the piston down is not very smooth, it is a bare metal rod sliding on the bare metal lid, it would not of been very difficult in my opinion to add a small plastic sleeve to the lid. The lid itself does not actually sit flush on the top of the unit, it rocks back and forth and does not rest stably on the base. I will try to take a quick video tomorrow to show what I am talking about tomorrow.
I don't think I am being to picky with this product as I do own their clicking tamper and frothing pitcher and found both to be excellent products with very high fit and finish tolerances. Can anyone else comment on their unit that they have received so far?
I am not trying to be negative, just was not the quality level I was expecting when I pre-ordered and for $85 ($99 without the kickstarter deal) I was expecting some better QC.
Anyway let get some brewing results posted in here as well!
