Need to Know

What is it? 

The Flair Classic is a fully manual espresso maker capable of brewing between 6 and 9 bar pressure, hitting the standard expected for cafè quality espresso. You handcraft the espresso you make from the Flair every step of the way, lending itself to a tactile and intentional espresso-making experience. With the Flair's bottomless 2-in-1 portafilter, you can brew with either a bottomless or a double-spouted portafilter. Endlessly portable, pack the Flair in its carrying case and bring it with you to your next party or on your next camping trip to make great espresso wherever you are.

Who is it for?

The Flair Classic is 100% human-powered. No pumps, no electricity—just traditional design and engineering. Perfect for beginners, espresso purists, and tinkerers—the Flair has a slight learning curve, but anyone who wants to learn how to make espresso can cut their teeth on the Flair and make amazing espresso for a lifetime. 

Adding the Pressure Kit gives you a stainless steel tamper and a custom pressure gauge to ensure repeatable extractions and adds a layer of experimentation to the process. 

Why do we carry it?

The Flair is unique because it breaks espresso-making down to its fundamentals and reminds us why we love espresso. Espresso is all about the journey. The end product is undoubtedly delicious, but it's what leads us to that perfectly extracted espresso that keeps us awake at night. Even better is its ease of use, portability, affordability, and how easy it is to clean. The Flair is the only espresso maker with a fully detachable group head, allowing you to separate the parts easily for cleaning.
