- About Us
"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.
A cup of coffee is practically a religious experience for us. We revere it, we crave it and we anticipate brewing and drinking it every day. Every coffee has a story, a history of soil, people and culture that make each one special. And it’s that combination that keeps us curious to learn about and eager to experience the next cup.
Even here in Northern California’s wine country, we believe that coffee has no culinary peer. Over 400 flavor compounds make up the unique aroma and taste that we experience when we smell and drink it. It’s that moment of astonishment at the cupping table when we crack the crust of a coffee with the right combination of those 400 compounds that drives us to find the best and highest quality lots available anywhere.
At Black Oak Coffee Roasters, we seek to express the true origin character of our coffees. Origin character is what tells the coffee’s story most vividly. We look for ripe, voluptuous sweetness and body to carry the coffee’s personality over the palate. And we want our coffee to linger in your head after you’ve tasted it, like a passage from your favorite novel.
