BRCC Flying Elk Roast Goes Inverted With the Espro P7 French Press

When trying out a new coffee brewing system, setting aside an adequate amount of time to channel your inner barista makes all the difference. And the BRCC x Espro French Press P7 Matte Black is designed to efficiently deliver a consistent, clean cup of coffee with ease.

The Espro P7 features a patented double microfilter and is constructed of double-walled stainless steel that can keep your coffee hot for hours. The outer filter of this French press is slightly coarser, which separates the majority of the grinds from the brewed coffee. The inner filter completes the job with a much finer mesh.

While many familiar with the French press recommend pouring all your desired cups immediately after your brew session to prevent over-extraction, this coffee maker allows for two stages of filtering.

The result is clean, grit-free coffee, and it allows the user to keep a second or even third cup of coffee at the ready in the kettle for extended periods.

We started with a 1-to-15 ratio of coffee to water for our first batch: for every gram of coffee, 15 grams of water. After that, it was all about making a few adjustments to our brewing technique, and we were off and running.

Our coffee of choice was the Black Rifle Coffee Company Flying Elk Roast. Flying Elk was the first-ever coffee released through the Exclusive Coffee Subscription back in 2019. This coffee was so popular with Coffee Club subscribers that BRCC made the call to bring it back.

Flying Elk is a washed Arabica grown in the Tarrazu canton of Costa Rica, a region that has produced high-quality coffee since the late 1920s. This light roast comes with a nutty aroma and tasting notes of chocolate, almond, brown sugar, and a hint of nostalgia for those who were able to score a bag of the original Flying Elk.

While the coffee inside isn't the same microlot roast found in the first ECS drop, BRCC was able to find a similar coffee from the same region with high enough yields to make this icon available for everyone to enjoy.

We used the larger 32-ounce P7, intending to make approximately two cups of coffee with each brew session. The P7 comes standard with convenient minimum- and maximum-fill lines inside the kettle, eliminating the need to measure your desired amount of water. Because we were only making two cups, we filled the kettle to the recommended minimum line each time.

BREWING WITH THE ESPRO P7 FRENCH PRESS

 

  1. Fill the bottom of the 32-ounce Espro P7 with hot water to preheat the vessel.
  2. Twist to lock both microfilters together and screw them onto the plunger rod.
  3. Grind coffee just before use. A coarse grind gives the best results.
  4. Grind 24-36 grams of coffee. (We found 35 grams ideal.)
  5. Pour the water out of the kettle.
  6. Pour the ground coffee into the bottom of the vessel.
  7. Boil your water. Let it cool for a minute or two. The ideal temperature is 197-207 degrees Fahrenheit.
  8. Fill the P7 with hot water until the water and coffee meet the minimum-fill line.
  9. Give it a quick stir to ensure all the grounds are wet.
  10. Put the lid on gently, without pressing down on the plunger.
  11. Wait four minutes.
  12. Slowly press the filter plunger down to the bottom. Aim for the full press to take about 15 seconds.
  13. Pour the coffee and enjoy it in your favorite BRCC mug.

 

The BRCC x Espro P7 French Press is available now on the official Black Rifle Coffee Company website. It is available in the 18-ounce and 32-ounce brewing configurations and comes in a brushed aluminum (smaller version only) or matte black finish with the iconic BRCC logo.
