Flair 58x is a fully-manual, non-electric version of the Flair 58. The Flair 58x is a professional grade lever espresso press that is focused on maximizing the workflow and the espresso from at-home extractions. The Flair 58x features Flair’s first industry standard 58mm portafilter as well as a more robust frame and lever for ease of extractions at higher pressures. As this version is completely non-electric, customers can preheat and engage in thermal management using the open preheat cap for the Flair 58x.
The Flair 58x is the gold standard in manual espresso from Flair – just in a completely non-electric version. Unlock the potential of your espresso with the Flair 58x.
The Flair 58x comes available in two variations that customers can choose between:
- Our base model with a chamfered, low-flow 18 gram basket for ease of dialing-in
- Our additional basket model that includes an additional straight-walled, high-flow 18-gram basket
The low-flow 18 gram basket is perfect to any home brewer’s kit, and allows for a dose range between 16-22 grams. This low-flow basket, when compared to the standard straight-walled basket of the Flair 58x, allows for an easier dial-in process by allowing a grind that is coarser for proper extractions, thereby increasing the overall compatibility with a range of grinders. The high-flow basket will require a grind that more closely mimic’s a commercial machine.
The Flair 58x will be upgradable to the electric version of the Flair 58. However, these upgrade kits will include electronics as well as all-new brewing head.
