  • The Large Espro Press | Venia Pays a Visit to Vancouver, BC

    Posted on June 18, 2012 by Venia Coffee Roasters | Keith

    A few weeks back I had the opportunity to head north on I-5 to visit our wonderful neighbors across the border in Vancouver, BC. Vancouver is the home to the creators of one of the most coveted coffee makers in the Venia lab, the Espro Press.

    If you are not familiar with Espro yet, they have brought several innovative products to the specialty coffee market in the past few years.  The first Espro product to make waves was the Espro Calibrated Tamper, an idea birthed to standardize one of the major variables in making espresso.  Designed to click when 30lbs of force is applied while tamping, this one product simply and easily improved the pull-to-pull consistency of even the best baristas on the bar.

    The calibrated tamper was soon followed by the Toroid frothing pitchers designed to facilitate better milk circulation while frothing and texturing milk. Their next major project was to improve upon one of the most tried and true coffee brewing devices available, the french press.  But how does how do you improve on a classic?

  • 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.

    The double wall construction keeps the brew temperature steady for great extraction, but be careful as it may be be hotter that what you are Continue Reading
