4200+ reviews can't be wrong, right? The Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker - Wow.


Anyone reading my past reviews about all the many different ways I make coffee knows I love the French Press options (I even blogged about the 'camping' option for French Press with my GSI mug!  LOL)  but I've never actually bought the Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker yet which is 'similar'.

WHY haven't I bought this yet?

I really don't have an answer for you.  I've 'looked' it numerous times.
It's not expensive.
But yet I've never placed an order for it.

But I thought I'd tell my readers about it anyway life is just insanely busy right now that I'll never get around to blogging about it if I don't just DO IT.

And besides, with almost 4300 other customers giving it outstanding ratings and reviews on Amazon I think it's safe to say it must be a decent product.

  • PUREST - Micro filtered for grit free coffee – unlike other press-type coffee makers.
  • FASTEST - One minute from start to enjoy. The actual press time takes only 20 seconds.
  • MADE IN THE US - Patented

HOW TO USE THE AEROPRESS COFFEE AND ESPRESSO MAKER:


To brew a double espresso or 10-ounce cup of coffee:
  • Place a microfilter in the bottom cap of the AeroPress chamber and twist the cap tightly closed.
  • Place two scoops of ground coffee from the included AeroPress scoop into the chamber.
  • Stand the chamber on a sturdy mug, then proceed to pour hot water into the top of the chamber (175 degrees F is optimal).
  • Stir the water and coffee with the included paddle for about 10 seconds.
  • Insert the plunger into the chamber and gently press down about a quarter of an inch and continue to maintain that pressure for 20 to 30 seconds (gentle pressure is the key to easy AeroPressing).
This will result in a double espresso. To make an Americano, simply top off the mug with hot water, or add hot milk for a creamy latte. The AeroPress can press from 1 to 4 scoops, and each scoop from the included AeroPress scoop makes the equivalent of a single espresso or 5 ounces of American coffee. Fill the chamber with hot water to the number corresponding to the number of scoops. You can also make a full carafe of coffee using the AeroPress in less time than it takes to brew a pot of drip coffee. Two 3-scoop or 4-scoop pressing, topped off with hot water, will fill most vacuum carafes.

The AeroPress is the result of several years of applied research by inventor/engineer Alan Adler, who conducted numerous brewing experiments, measuring the brew with laboratory instruments. The experiments demonstrated that proper temperature, total immersion and rapid filtering were key to flavor excellence. He then designed and tested dozens of brewers before settling on the AeroPress design.





The Aeropress can be found on Amazon if you can't find one locally - but I also was happy to see they offer REPLACEMENT PARTS AND EXTRA FILTERS FOR THE AEROPRESS.
