It all began in 2002 when Bruce Constantine and Chris McLean met for a coffee, and sketched the Calibrated Tamper on the back of a napkin as a way to improve the ease of making good espresso. By April 2004, ESPRO had emerged dedicated to helping serve the best possible cup of coffee.
Along the way they have learned that improving coffee and tea requires action from everyone – farmers, roasters, blenders, equipment innovators, shops, restaurants and passionate consumers.
They craft tools that help people make better coffee, tea, and espresso. They love to combine time-tested brewing techniques with technology and innovation. Espro have since developed a patented double micro-filter that is used in their Espro Travel Press Range and The EsproToroid Pitcher.
