Love the smooth bore coffee! 20g is perfect for the espro, just be sure to poor the hot water very slowly ;)
I was in need of some new fresh coffee and all of a sudden in a puff of coffee scented steam like the genie from Aladdin, Cannonball Coffee appeared. I took notice of the Espro travel press and was instantly struck with curiosity. I thought to myself “I like fresh pressed coffee, I would like to have that fresh brewed loveliness mid way through the day” and so I jumped in with both feet and added that to my basket with the Maximum Charge coarse ground coffee (grind as recommended) My attention was then drawn to the small batch barrel aged beans and my mind went “oooooooooooooooooooh” so I dropped those in my basket too. A few days later my package arrived and I could not wait to get brewing, so I ripped open the packaging with my teeth like a feral child raised by squirrels and stared into the depths of the box where my gaze was met by pure beauty. I pulled out my gear and instantly arranged them in a perfect fashion for that oh so necessary Instagram picture (after all that’s where I found this glorious company) once I had put my photography skills to work, I clicked the kettle on. I tore open the Maximum charge coffee and threw some grind in my cafetière, and prepared my phone with a 4 minute timer. “CLICK” the sound of the kettle and readiness grabbed me and I paused briefly, staring at the kettle, waiting, letting it cool a bit, then I pounced and poured that water over my grind, gave it a mix and smashed the cafetière lid into place and proceeded to hit the timer start button. I painfully wait for what seems like an age, staring at the grind dancing away in the little glass chamber of brewing excellency Like a clutch of fairies flittering through the sky. “Bibbedy beep bibbedy beep” the timer has gone off, finally I can pour the deliciousness out into a perfectly round mug with some hilarious wording emblazoned across the front, and I begin to sip at the beautiful nectar that rests inside. “Aaaaaaaahhh!”
In summary: the maximum charge coffee smells good and tastes better, I make up two brews in the morning, one to get me going and one for my espro travel press so that I can get that boost into the afternoon. The espro press I say is best upto 6 hours and not the 8 that it states. I also had the small batch barrel aged coffee beans and I have to say that on first trial the flavour was very strong and a bit of a shock to the system but after that the flavour was enjoyable and you get a nice little buzz off of it too.
I am almost out of maximum charge and will definitely be reordering in the near future.
Amazing blend. Great mug! Used every single day :)
A must for all coffeeholics, push and go.
This is the view from my home; your coffee heightens all joy that this gives me. Well done!
Excellent piece of kit for making quality coffee on the go.
Definitely way better than I expected, I was expecting a strong caffeinated bitter taste but it was actual the greatest coffee I have ever had all the way around will definitely be buying more
Loving the coffee and the travel filter is superb! Keeps coffee lovely and hot.
Love the cannonball blend, have ordered more and some smoothbore also
The travel press is a great piece of kit for every coffee lover!
Keeps the coffee hot for hours and not only built great but also easy to clean!
The coffee is out of this world too!
Without a doubt the tastiest and strongest coffee I've ever had!
Made for a good Xmas present. Appreciate all the hard work Duncan put in to get it to me by Xmas.
Highly recommended product ,easy to use and leaves you with a brew avoid of any bits like you get with a cafetiere. The Cannonball logo adds a unique touch to a stylish product . The price is good compared with the competition,without the bonus of the free coffee . Just go for it ,you will not be disappointed .
Bought for my son in law who loves it.
Coffee dont come out potent when you brew it this way. Cup dont hold enough coffee to carry out.
Love the flask and the coffee is just as amazing!
A fanatic travel coffee brewing leak proof mug, it arrived quickly and well packaged with the bonus of a big bag of free cannonball coffee. What more can I say, the cannonball coffee is immense and the mug has made all of my other portable brewing methods ie. aeropress obsolete. Fantastic coffee on the go and at work.
I bought this as a present for my Dad, it is much admired and he is spreading the Cannonball Coffee love in Yorkshire! Excellent coffee that stays very hot, which is perfect for when you are on the go.
