French Press Vs. Pour Over

Lots of customers ask us why press coffee tastes different than pour over coffee. We love that you notice the difference and share our curiosity about coffee.

Pour Over

Pour over is a brew method regarded as a ritual that offers a clean cup of coffee. This manual drip style relies on a paper filter, and you brew by slowly pouring hot water over coffee grounds. The paper effectively absorbs any oils present, leaving little aftertaste on your palate.

French press is a full-emersion brew method that’s user-friendly. Add hot water to the coffee grounds, and let it brew for 4 minutes. It utilizes a metal filter, meaning any oils present in the coffee are retained, giving a full-bodied flavor and syrupy mouthfeel.


To experience the best of both worlds, ESPRO created paper filters as an accessory to any ESPRO press. This combined filtration offers the cleanest cup of coffee.
