Tech that: Espresso Display: the world’s thinnest portable monitor

The thinnest portable monitor for creatives and professionals, according to its manufacturer.

Available from

RRP: From £299

What is it? Espresso Display claims to be the world’s thinnest portable monitor for creatives and professionals.

Plus points

  • The design of this is excellent. It’s so thin and made of brushed metal. It wouldn’t be out of place in any Apple promotional material.
  • This has to be one of the easiest set-ups ever. One cable does it all. Just plug the screen into your existing laptop or desktop.
  • You have the option to buy a touch-screen variant with a stylus. Perfect for users of graphic design software.
  • An optional stand and stylus for the screen are mounted using magnets.
  • The monitor comes with its own software called Espresso Flow, where you can manage your workspaces, snap apps to different parts of the screen and adjust colour settings.

Nil points

  • Since this monitor is geared towards creatives, I think a less glossy screen would have been better.
  • I found that the screen wasn’t as bright as the Mac it was plugged into.
  • Using Espresso isn’t ideal with a desktop computer as they’re generally larger than the screen itself, which looks strange.
  • The optional accessories are great, but I wish at the very least that a stand was included in the box.


Rating: ✡✡✡

Verdict: For people working on the go, in airport lounges, coffee shops or hybrid spaces, the Espresso display can be a game changer in terms of portability and ease of use.
