This fantastic, innovative press pot first came out two years ago. It is a one of a kind, dual filtration press pot method that leads to better tasting, less sediment coffee.
Developed in Vancouver by Espro, this press has so many innovations. It is fully vacuum insulated (most presses, including the Freiling models, are not vacuum insulated), meaning it retains heat better and it is much lighter. This also leads to a slower, better controlled cool down during the brewing process.
But the real magic is inside with the two stage filtration system. The first filter to hit the coffee and brewing water is basket shaped; the coffee slurry will form around this and be pushed down by it. As the brew passes through this filter, it comes against a flat disc filter that has a finer mesh and further filters the coffee, delivering a cleaner cup.
This press is small - it will brew about 240ml of coffee (8oz). Espro also has developed an even larger version of this press pot with a different (but similar process) filtration system, which you can see on their website.
