  • Espro Press - The Cleanest French Press

    Posted on November 3, 2011 by Venia Coffee Roasters | Keith

    Espro is a newer company in the specialty coffee world, but they have some truly remarkable barista products.  With the same innovation, quality and uniqueness that have won them notoriety in the espresso realm, they have brought into the home with the Espro Press.

    What makes the double walled insulated stainless steel Espro Press different than every other french press is its double stage micro-filter. This unique patented filter makes one of the cleanest cups of coffee from a press pot I have ever had, while still retaining the abundant body and mouth-feel that has made french press fans happy for eons.  I was sold at first sip and knew I needed to offer these little beauties.

    Brewing is straight forward and easy, add 18-22 grams of fresh coarsely ground coffee, fill with water that has just reached boil and start your timer for 3-4 minutes (I prefer 4).  About 30 second before the timer goes off, gently stir and knock down the coffee bloom on top.  Then slowly plunge, pour and enjoy.

  • A Good Thing Remains Unchanged

    Posted on November 2, 2011 by Venia Coffee Roasters | Keith

    I was reading through an article on this morning that highlighted a New York Tribune article from 1918, titled "How to Make Coffee, Circa 1918."  Now from my understanding, the preferred brew method of the day was the percolator and this article from nearly 100 years ago points out the poor results from this method.  The fun part was its recommendation of the coffee siphon and freshly ground coffee beans...good advice then, and good advice now.

    Silex, the first to bring the coffee siphon to the U.S. market, patented the coffee siphon from a early French design around 1914.

    Today, the Yama Coffee Siphon is one of our go to favorites for brewing more expensive single origin coffees.  They produce a clean cup, and allow the subtler notes often lost in other brewing methods to shine through.

    Take a look at the CoffeeGeek article HERE.

    We carry a full line of Yama Coffee Siphons, a good thing then, and a good thing now. Continue Reading
