Buyers Guide

Flairs come in four different models
 To understand the differences, we must first start with the brew heads
 
PRO_2_brew_head_website_differences_gray

The PRO 2 Brew Head comes standard on all PRO 2 Flairs.

 

It is larger in terms of water capacity, larger in terms of dose range, and more capable in terms of managing different brew ratios. The PRO 2 comes standard with our custom pressure gauge, and features a removable spout for naked or bottomless brewing. The portafilter basket is 46mm in diameter, is constructed of stainless steel, and the basket replicates the design of cafe-style portafilters. 

Most Classic and Signature Flairs can be upgraded to the PRO 2 Brew Head. To upgrade, models must have a black adaptor ring on their portafilter base.

The Standard Brew Head comes with The NEO, Classic and Signature models and can accept the Flow-Control Portafilter, as on the NEO or the Bottomless 2-in-1 Portafilter, as on the Classic and Signature. (The Flow-Control Portafilter is easy to recognize with its red color.)

This brew head is smaller, and has less stainless steel than the PRO 2 Brew Head, with a 60ml reservoir and a dose range of 12-18 grams. The yield from the Standard Brew Head is roughly 45ml, or less than a volumetric double shot. However, the Standard Brew Head still has the capability to produce cafe-quality shots, just like the PRO 2.

Parts of the Standard and PRO 2 Brew Heads are not interchangeable.
