Aeropress® Coffee & Espresso Maker
"For the world's smoothest, richest brew"
We're not inclined to argue with Aerobie's (the company that makes the Aeropress®) claims. In fact, we would start a slow clap. All of us coffee lovers slowly joining in unison until a wave of applause roiled over this magnificent and clever coffee maker.
The Aeropress® essentially acts like an expensive espresso machine does, except instead of a huge device like the one we have in our cafe in Ukiah, you simply press down and let the steam and pressure work its magic. The whole process is really fast, quicker than making a cup of tea.
We can also vouch for this little buddy as a camping companion. Small, lightweight, easy to clean, there's nothing like a really REALLY good cup of Black Oak Coffee when you are out and about. Or if the office 20 cup drip machine doesn't inspire you to go to work, stash one of these away and be caffeine fulfilled.
The bottom line is: you never thought you could make coffee this gourmet without dropping some serious coinage on a fancypants machine. Well you can. And you deserve to treat yourself.
Also makes THE go-to gift for any coffee snobs in your life.
Here's more verbage from the maker that really, we can't argue with:
Using the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure brewing yields rich flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness.
Total immersion brewing results in uniform extraction of the ultimate in full coffee flavor. Other coffee makers drip hot water on bed of grounds, over extracting at the center and under extracting at the edge.
Micro filtered for grit free coffee – unlike other press-type coffee makers.
One minute from start to enjoy. The actual press time takes only 20 seconds.
