With the introduction of their PRO models, all Flairs were updated to be cross-compatible with the same portafilter base.
On new production of Classic and Signature models from 2019 onward, these portafilter bases contain a black Adaptor Ring insert to accommodate the narrower Standard portafilters. By removing this ring, these models may equally accommodate the PRO portafilter and brew head.
Conversely, PRO models require the addition of this Adaptor Ring in order to be compatible with the Standard portafilter and brew head.
Black adaptor ring insert: included with new production of Classic & Signature models; required for PRO models to accept Standard portafilters; to be removed from Standard models to accept PRO brew head.
NOTE: Earlier production Standard portafilter base, which contains a narrower interior and exterior diameter (and does not include black adaptor ring), cannot accept PRO portafilters.

Born from a desire to make espresso without any unnecessary gadgetry or the complexity of high-end machines, Flair set out with one mission: to make espresso in the comfort of one's home or anywhere you go.
Combining thirty years of engineering experience and a love for pure, delicious espresso, Flair created a simple, elegant, and affordable solution that speaks to their mantra of enjoying the process as much as the destination and slowing down to savour the best things in life—like espresso made right.
Made of high-grade aluminum and stainless steel, the Flair Espresso Maker comes with a 5-Year limited warranty on Press Stand & Brewing Cylinder. Parts that are more subject to normal wear and tear, such as O-rings, Silicone Sleeve, Piston, and Portafilter are warranted against defects in material, design or workmanship for 6-months, although these items are expected to last beyond the warranty.
The Signature PRO's integrated pressure gauge—now with a protective silicone wrap—empowers precise control of your brew pressure throughout the entire extraction, with an easy-to-read gauge face that shows when you're brewing in the recommended range for espresso.
Hone your craft and dial in your shots with confidence—from pre-infusion to slow ramps, it's all in your hands.
With a larger reservoir and portafilter, the Signature PRO brings greater recipe control and variability to your brew.
Featuring a new all-stainless steel portafilter basket that accommodates doses from 14-24g, the Signature PRO's redesigned cylinder with integrated plunger and pour-through filling allows you set the plunger height to brew with between 50-75ml of water.
Craft your brew strength and yield to exacting specifications and enjoy replicating the recipes from your favourite specialty cafés.
Beyond its visual appeal, the view of espresso flowing from the Signature PRO's enhanced flow naked portafilter offers immediate feedback and insight on the quality of your extraction—now with an optional spout for those who prefer to cover up.
Put simply, the new bottomless portafilter is a powerful diagnostic tool that will give you the information you need to make your next shot better than the last.
More than just cosmetic, the enhanced stainless steel experience of the Signature PRO brings improved robustness and thermal mass to the easiest to clean Flair yet.
From the new two-piece drip-tray to the improved tamper and the Signature PRO's re-imagined brew head—which not only features an integrated stainless steel plunger, but also incorporates an all stainless steel portafilter and screen—the Signature PRO signals the quality, durability and refinement expected from a premium espresso maker.
