What do I need to brew with Flair?

Aside from the Flair itself, you'll need a few key tools on your bar.

The basic – but absolutely required – kit for making delicious espresso at home is relatively simple. You need:

  • Freshly roasted beans – used within their peak freshness window
  • A high-quality burr grinder that can handle espresso (not all burr grinders are created equal)
  • A kettle for boiling water, and
  • An espresso maker, like our Flair Classic

*But, with our Flair NEO, you can use almost any burr grinder you have – as its Flow-Control portafilter works to ensure proper pressure is achieved even with a too-coarse or inconsistent grind. The NEO is perfect for those just getting started – but as always, for the best results, you’ll want to use the best ingredients. – So let’s talk about each one of these components separately.
