Making espresso manually with the Flair

TheFlaircoffee maker has one goal. To make espresso. It has no electronic gadgets that control the coffee preparation. He simply prepares it in the simplest form.

That's why its operation is simple. In essence, it consists of a few basic steps.

Pour in the ground coffee, tamp, pour in the water and now comes the beauty part, pressing the lever. At this point, the coffee starts flowing into the cup. Themagic of extraction is literally in our hands.

"We believe that happiness comes from enjoying the best things in life, like a hug, a sunset or the perfect cup of espresso."

This idea is the mantra of Flair coffee makers. They refer to theimportance of not just the result, but theprocess itself. A coffee maker doesn't make a multitude of different coffee drinks at the push of a button, it simply makes espresso. Thefun and experience is just the way of making coffee, where you create this espresso by your own power.

THE PLEASURE OF MAKING ESPRESSO

Flair is designed for home baristas who approach the business as a craft. This coffee machine is also a favourite with professionals. Although Flair is not a coffee machine suitable for café use, professionals find the slower and slightly longer preparation time an enjoyable experience.

It is a contrast to the hustle and bustle behind the bar in a busy café, where speed of service with constant high quality is the main priority. When the barista of such a café is free to prepare his coffee, he does it for his own pleasure. Making espresso in a Flair coffee machine is just such a pastime.

WHAT IS A FLAIR ESPRESSO MACHINE

Amachine for making manual espresso. It is without electronics, so everything has to be done by you - manually. But the result is real espresso. The basis for the extraction of each espresso is the right finely ground coffee and hot water in a certain ratio according to your recipe. And pressure.

A proper espresso is made at 9 bar. The design of the flair is based on the need tocreate and maintain this pressure when extracting . Its lever is designed so that the force exerted on its end is multiplied by nine in the head of the machine. Thanks to this ingenious technical solution, it is possible to prepare coffee by hand that meets the requirements of a proper espresso.

HOW FLAIR WORKS

Flair is a gadget thatextracts coffee into hot water using manually created pressure. To make espresso in Flair, in addition to this machine, you will need roasted coffee, hot water and your favorite mug.

Grindyour coffee finely and weigh the amount you need according to your chosen recipe . Pour this amount of coffee into the portafilter. For this step, Flair has a special tool in the equipment to pour the coffee evenly. Tamp the coffee and insert the portafilter into the machine. Put on the brewing head, which you have pre-heated in hot water for temperature stability. Pour hot water into the brew head . A temperature ofaround 92°C is used when making espresso .

Now all you have to do is use your own hand and push the lever of the machine to create the desired pressure and "squeeze" the perfect espresso into your cup. We recommend heating your coffee cups with hot water so that the coffee retains its heat and therefore its taste a little longer.
