Flair 58 Plus - A True Barista Espresso Experience
The Flair 58 Plus is the new flagship from Flair Espresso. Including everything from the base model Flair 58, the Flair 58+ shines with walnut accents on the portafilter, t-grip and palm tamper. The included articulating shot mirror attaches to the post magnetically and the Flair 58+ features custom branding you won’t find anywhere else.
The preheat system on the Flair 58+ includes three different levels: low, medium and high, which roughly correlate to brewing temperatures needed for dark, medium and light roasts respectively. Turn on your preheat setting and feel confident that your thermal management is taken care of. And, if you’re feeling the travel itch, the 58+ features an easily detachable preheat controller, meaning that you can go off-grid and brew espresso anywhere.
The Flair 58+ also features dark motif screws and includes both of Flair’s portafilter baskets, the high and low-flow, to ensure home baristas have all the control they need.
Finally, with the featured valve plunger the workflow on the Flair 58 Plus is unrivaled, ensuring that if you’re brewing for yourself or your friends and family, one shot or multiple, the Flair 58 Plus will delight with the ease and simplicity of creating delicious espresso.
Lower the lever, raise your expectations for home espresso, with the Flair 58+.
The Flair 58 Plus is a barista level espresso machine, capable of creating and re-creating your favorite recipes from any coffee you own. As such, the 58 Plus requires a full brewing kit of accessories to ensure top performance.
At a minimum, brewers with the Flair 58 Plus must have:
- Espresso capable, high-quality burr grinder – Brewing espresso on the Flair 58 Plus is a work of art and science. It’s impossible to dial-in your espresso extraction with inconsistent grounds. As such, it’s required to have an espresso-capable burr grinder to use with your 58 Plus. Expect to spend at least $150 and look for a unit with stepless grind sizing.
- High-quality kettle – While a temperature controlled kettle is not required for brewing with the Flair 58 Plus, it will definitely make your workflow and experience more enjoyable. At a minimum, target a kettle with a thermometer so you can be precise with your thermal inputs.
- Digital Scale – Any scale will do, but for repeatable results, both your inputs and outputs should be measured. This includes for dosing your beans, measuring the output in your cup as well as flow rate.
