The french press brewer doesn’t use any filter paper, which makes the end product extremely rich and fatty. The french press also leaves some more grind residue into the cup. To minimize the residue, one should use a high-quality french press with a thorough filter. We believe in the Espro press brewers, which are a modern version of the classic french press. The Espro presses have a patented double-layered filter that filters the residue but lets all the delicious flavour through giving you a rich cup of coffee.
