Excellent Portable Espresso Machine

Customer Experience: Great customer and sales service from 8oz coffee, as always. 5/5
With respect to learning how to use the product, there are dozens of informative Youtube videos, both made by Flair and other users. 5/5

Backstory: I started drinking espresso when in university nearly 50-years ago, and started making it at home 20+ years ago when I bought my first prosumer machine. Coffee and water are the only two things I consume everyday, so I want both to be of the highest quality,,, but especially coffee. If espresso experts are 10 out of 10, and the best baristas in Calgary are 8.5 out of 10, then I rate my knowledge of espresso at 6.5-7 out of 10.

User Experience: I bought the Flair for its portability, mainly to take camping. There is a steep learning curve to using this "machine", and the Flair demonstrator recommends using inexpensive coffee while you learn to dial in your espresso with this device. Good advice as it took almost a pound of Nabob before I started getting all the parameters working together. The three critical variables are the group head temperature, the grind quality, and maintaining consistent pressure.

First, Espresso made in accordance with the instructions turned out sour. I recommend immersing the group head in boiling water and using tongs and an ovglove to handle it after a few minutes. The method of pouring boiling water into the group head and using the plastic bottom seal does not work. Second, do not fine grind this as you would for an espresso - it needs to be somewhat coarser, nearly the same grind level as used for an aeropress or pour over coffee, i.e., medium fine. Finally, pressure ... what's really cool about the Flair is the ability to do some pressure profiling. I start pulling it at 3.5 bars for about 5 seconds, and then take it to 7 bars. The trick here is to maintain the pressure, you don't want to ease off and have the pressure drop, or apply to much - pressure stability is the key here.

Once all these variables are properly dialed in the Flair makes a very good to excellent espresso - not as good as a prosumer machine, but damn close - and at 1/10th the price! Hence, I rate the Flair Pro2 as 5/5.
