Flavored coffees, single-origin and estate coffees, organics and house-blend roasts introduced with XPress Lid by SmartCup
Auburn, CA – Beansmith Artisan Coffee Roasters of La Vista, NE, utilizes XPress lid by SmartCup, a portable, disposable and recyclable French press, to introduce their flavored coffees, single-origin and estate coffees, and their organics and house-blend roasts to their coffee shop patrons. XPress is the ideal product for roasters to use to showcase their inventory of beans.
The XPress lid places the coffee grounds in direct contact with the brewing water, thus retaining more of the coffee’s flavor and essential oils. These flavors and oils are not available in a traditional cup of coffee as they are trapped in the drip-brew machine’s paper filters. French pressed coffee is noticeably stronger and richer than drip-brewed.
“We have received great feedback from our wholesale clients,” said Chris Smith, President of Beansmith Artisan Coffee Roasters. “Our resellers use XPress to introduce our roasts. This allows their clients to experience the entire flavor profile of our beans, and that means more people are enjoying our premium roasts.”
“We are excited to be working with Beansmith Artisan Coffee Roasters,” said Kent Rhodes, CEO of SmartCup. “They understand the value of using a French press to derive the greatest flavor from their coffees.”

French Press 101
A French press, also known as a press pot, is a simple coffee-brewing device first patented by Italian designer Attilio Calimani in 1929. A French press requires coffee of a coarser grind than does a drip coffee. Coffee is brewed by placing the coffee and water together, stirring it and leaving to brew for a few minutes, then pressing the plunger to trap the coffee grounds at the bottom of the beaker.
SmartCup, Inc., manufactures and sells the award-winning XPress lid, the industry’s first disposable French press lid system, to specialty coffee retailers, independent shops, roasters and distributors.
