I've never used this specific travel press but the Espro french presses are extremely well made and produce significantly smoother/cleaner coffee than a cheap/normal french press, such as the bodum (It still gives you the full body characteristic of french presses). They are regarded as one of (if not) the best press you can buy.

The filter material is significantly finer, and there are two of them instead of one. Even better is that it seals inside the press as you plunge - so you can drink a cup and leave some in the press for later without worrying about it over-brewing. Make sure you are grinding correctly and this press (brew for ~ 4 minutes) combined with well roasted fresh coffee can give you an outstanding cup of coffee.

Thanks OP! Ordered 2 via Ebates. We got the regular French press Espro and my partner has finally stopped complaining about grit in his coffee ><

I was looking at these presses but a bunch of reviews indicate it leaves room in bottom so you have 1/2 cup coffee just stuck in the bottom. Which model do you have and maybe it's something they are doing? I have a cheap french press but looking to upgrade mine at some point. Also with espro do you grind the coffee to same coarse ground consistency?

I have the P7. It's built like a tank. There is a little left because the filter is larger, but it's definitely not a full cup. You can get it out if you want though: http://espro.ca/esproblog/2015/10/27/ge ... spro-press

Yeah you would use a normal french press grind. Medium-course to course generally speaking, but use whatever suits the coffee you are using. Using fresh, good quality coffee (not grocery store coffee) and a proper grinder (anything from baratza or equivalent) will make the world of difference too.

I have the Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Grinder. Right now I use the very last notch for the most coarse grind for my french press. I am unsure if I am able to use a more fine grind and if so what difference might be. I guess I can test it out tomorrow.
