Flair Espresso’s journey started when Sergio Landau, a mechanical engineer and espresso lover who made his own machine to enjoy espressos at home. The Classic Flair Espresso arrived on the market in late 2016 in California. From there, the Flair Espresso became one of the best lever manual espresso machines.
The Flair Espresso Classic is the first version of the famous manual espresso maker that transformed the craft coffee industry in 2016. The machine is capable of brewing between 6-9 BAR pressure. It is exactly what you need to brew cafe-quality espresso wherever you are.

The maintenance of an espresso machine is sometimes complicated, but not with Flair: all the parts can be dismantled and therefore be cleaned easily. Indeed, with the Classic Flair Espresso, you get the brew chamber (Bottomless 2-in-1 Portafilter), the lever itself, the base and few plastic accessories including a plastic drip tray. This ability to break everything down makes the Flair a real nomad machine. Because the brand took care of all the details, a hybrid part can be used as a tamper and a special carrying case is provided.
The Flair Espresso is great to experiment with. It is a modular machine that can be adjusted as you use it thanks to its various upgrades available. For example, we would advice on getting the Flair Pressure Gauge Kit to be placed on top of the brew chamber. It will allow you to be more precise to reach the perfect extraction (6-9 BAR pressure).
Finally, we’ll recommend Flair’s tiny tamper, because it’s cute and handy!

Discover the Flair Espresso PRO 2 for a more precise and comfy way to make slow espresso. It’s got some cool improvements:
- Better flow with a new bottomless portafilter.
- The metal spout comes off easily.
- The handle has a squishy silicone grip.

The PRO 2 Brew Head makes manual espresso even better. It’s got a bigger tank and a wider stainless steel portafilter (46mm across). This means you can easily control how your espresso comes out.
You can use the PRO 2 Brew Head with the Classic and Signature Flair machines too.
And they added a special silicone guard for the pressure gauge, so it lasts even longer. Get ready to enjoy making espresso with the Flair Espresso PRO 2 – it mixes new ideas with the old ones!
