If you love a perfect cup of coffee, you need to hydrate throughout the day, and you hate things that weigh you down, the ESPRO Ultralight is for you. 

 As Featured In...

 

Why Is The Ultralight The Best Travel Press?

The ESPRO Ultralight is the lightest stainless steel insulated brewer in the world at just 9.5 oz (269 g). Our globally patented double-filter creates the distinct, rich flavor of a French Press without any grit. Our coffee has been validated for 5 years by hundreds of thousands of the world's most fanatical coffee lovers.

Is The Ultralight The Lightest Hydration Bottle In The World?

Yes! The Ultralight is also the lightest 16 oz vacuum-insulated hydration bottle of its kind at just 7.4 oz (210 g). As a double wall stainless insulated 16oz hydration bottle, it is the lightest in the world. 

 

We guarantee the Ultralight will deliver a better cup of coffee! We call our customers Friends for Life, and our guarantee backs it up.

 

Measure your desired amount of coffee into your brewer (1). Add water to the fill line (2) and cover without pressing (3). After 4 minutes, press (4). You can drink your coffee immediately, or seal it up (5) and enjoy later (6). 

For international shipping, please note that you may be responsible for duties, fees and taxes applicable to your region.

 

Add-ons are items that you can add to any reward. To include an add-on, simply select your reward and add the amount for each add-on to your pledge amount.

 

 

In 2002, Bruce Constantine and Chris McLean met for a coffee and sketched the Calibrated Tamper on the back of a napkin as a way to improve the ease of making good espresso. By April 2004, ESPRO® had emerged dedicated to serving the best possible cup of coffee.

Along the way, we’ve learned that improving coffee and tea requires action from everyone - Farmers, Roasters, Blenders, Equipment Innovators, Shops, Restaurants, and Coffee and Tea Fanatics.

We craft tools that help people make better coffee, tea, and espresso. We’re obsessed with combining time-tested brewing techniques with technology and innovation. We are dedicated to flavor and process and craft and creativity.

Everything we do supports coffee and tea lovers to make their best cup – simply, every day, all over the world.

Risks and challenges

Each design has been tested using full-scale prototypes. The product passes our high standards for a travel press that’s optimized to be ultralight without compromising strength or style. We have selected our manufacturing partners. Every product you see on our page is factory-produced and ready.

As with any early-stage product, there is always the possibility that we will encounter unexpected hold-ups. If we do need encounter delays, we will communicate with our backers immediately. You’re a backer because you believe in us, and we’re committed to maintaining transparency throughout the process of bringing the ESPRO Ultralight from idea to reality.
