The ESPRO® Travel Press is Named Best New Product - Coffee and Tea Preparation - for 2015 by the Specialty Coffee Association of America

New Travel Product Let's Users Brew 3rd-Wave Coffee-Shop Quality Beverages, Anytime, Anywhere, in Their Favorite Style - Grit-Free French Press Coffee, Pour Over Style Coffee and Loose Leaf Tea

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 23, 2015) - ESPRO® announced today that the ESPRO Travel Press (from USD $35, available late June) has won the Best New Product - Coffee, Tea Preparation & Serving (Consumers) at the recent Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) event held last April 9 - 12, 2015 in Seattle, Washington. The industry judged award recognizes new products that represent quality and add value to the specialty coffee and tea industry.

"We are honored and excited to win this award that proves our commitment to providing quality and innovative products. Our coffee and tea obsessed community requires our products to be definitive. This travel product packs the most advanced brewing technology ever seen outside a coffee or tea shop environment." says Bruce Constantine, President of ESPRO.

The ESPRO Travel Press delivers grit-free French Press coffee to the travel market using the ESPRO Press filtration technology, and also introduces two new brewing styles. First, paper-filtered pressed coffee delivers pour-over style coffee on the go for the first time, the dominant style of coffee preferred by third-wave coffee lovers such as Blue Bottle, Equator, Verve and Intelligentsia (watch the video here). Second, a first-ever extraction-stopping tea press delivers precision microfiltration and automatically stops extraction without the bulk, weight or brew limitations of a removable steeper common in other compact tea vessels (view the video).

Regardless of which of the three brew methods is used, the ESPRO Travel Press stays hot for hours, stops extraction in the vessel so your beverage tastes the same in 4 minutes or 4 hours, and seals completely in your bag in any orientation without leaking.

About ESPRO®

ESPRO® exists to bring the best cup of coffee and tea to every table. In 2002 Bruce Constantine and Chris McLean met for coffee, and sketched their first product concept on the back of a napkin- a calibrated tamper to make more consistent espresso. By April 2004, ESPRO had emerged. The first years were characterized by a string of products aimed at improving the consistency of espresso and milk foam. In 2012, ESPRO introduced the groundbreaking ESPRO Press, the first grit free French Press coffee and tea maker. It has garnered global accolades.

Today ESPRO is the epicenter of a grassroots movement that is shaking and reshaping the coffee and tea equipment industry and re-defining the way we perceive the perfect cup. With its range of innovative products designed to achieve consistently great results, ESPRO is destined to carve an important niche among coffee and tea aficionados.
