The Flair is not the ultimate beginner’s espresso machine.

Flair

I’m definitely not saying that it’s not an accessible espresso machine for beginner’s, because that it is: both because of its price point (relatively lower than other espresso machines) and its unintimidating user interface (no scary boilers or digital displays — just a big lever, some coffee and a cup).

I would go as far as to say that it’s the ultimate master’s espresso machine.

This is why:

The Flair gives you incredible control. So much that, if you don’t really know what you’re doing, you might not know what to do with all this control (if you’re even aware of it in the first place). Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, the Flair might still give you amazing espresso (I know it does for me).
