    I don't use my Espro anymore. It wastes a decent amount of coffee because of the plunger/filter design. The double micro filter gives a clean, no sludge cup but it doesn't go all the way down so there is retained liquid at the bottom.

    Frieling is another company that offers dual walled stainless steel french presses with a traditional plunger/filter.

    If you don't mind single cup press devices then have a look at Aeropress, Delter and American Press.

    I have an aeropress, but like the frenchpress to get both my wife and I a cup in the morning without having the extra work

    I bought a Toddy cold brew system after reading that cold brews have 66% less acid. First cup will be tomorrow morning!

    My Espro produces 2 full to the brim 16 oz mugs, yes there is a bit of leftover coffee at the bottom but it might be just a smidgeon more which isn't the end of the world to me. If you wanted you can pull the plunger up and angle the press and push down to try and get the remaining but it's not really worth the tiny amount imo.

    I also find it depends on the beans/roast itself, when I go to clean it some beans won't produce anything to pour/strain out while others have a considerable amount of liquid leftover. And this isn't just the leftover grind soaking up the remaining liquid fully, can clean it within an hour and find this.

    It's just the downfall/nature of the filter setup in the espro's, there's lots of other stainless steel french presses which have the standard filter and you'll get all liquid out but more oil/sediment. But I would recommend going stainless steel just for the sake of no more breaking glass carafes.

    What I've been drinking lately, bought these off Amazon for something to try, def not fresh roasted which is fine but overall all 3 were meh to me. Tasted over roasted pretty badly for a supposed medium and the taste of each was also meh. The columbian and guat are fine with milk but didn't care for either black. The ethiopian was very fruity and smelled/tasted pretty decent but comparing it to some ethiopian beans I have from Monogram as the same time, they didn't hold a candle to the monogram beans

    Other than these bags I've been rolling through some beans from Monogram

    The grey bag which is a blend was actually surprising how much I enjoyed it, just a nice clean cup of coffee that tastes what I like a standard coffee to taste like. The purple Ardent bag was also great, all the Monogram I've tried so far tastes light and bright, pretty impressed with what I've had.

    Coop has some of my favourite cheap coffee. Sale on right now. I grabbed two bags of the Ethiopia, and the cashier told me she was from Ethiopia too! Fun stuff.

    ^ siiiiiick! I'm jelly haha, let me know what you think of everything. I'm going to Kauai in Feb and going to get them to send me over 10-20 lbs to bring back as their shipping costs are pricey with the exchange rate.

    It’s pretty good (trying the peaberry today)... but yeah, the shipping sucks along with the exchange, making it over $1/100ml!

    I really like Eclipse Coffee out in Canmore. Loads of flavours of beans.

    Formally known as Rave Coffee. Why they rebranded I have no idea but when all they do is put a sticker over their old label on the cups, it's pretty funny!

    Can't go wrong with Monogram.

    +1 for Eclipse! I always stop by after a day out in the mountains. I'm really enjoying their Kenyan and Rwandan.

    Rave Coffee Canmore was either a franchise or expansion of Rave Coffee in Cirencester, UK. I'm guessing no more royalties

    Rave Coffee UK was on my list of coffee shops to visit while I was living in the UK. I was happy to hear about Rave opening in Canmore upon my move back to Calgary. It was one of the first local shops to serve flat whites.
