Aerobie Aeropress Plunger Coffee Press
The Aerobie® AeroPress™ coffee maker utilizes a breakthrough in the coffee brewing process to yield the smoothest, richest coffee available. The best invention since the French Press and the Bodum!
Proper brewing temperature, total immersion brewing and rapid micro-filtering are the keys to coffee flavor excellence. The revolutionary Aerobie® AeroPress™ coffee maker is designed to optimize these factors. The result is the smoothest, richest coffee you have ever tasted. It makes American style coffee or an espresso-style shot perfect for use in lattés or cappuccinos.
The AeroPress really works great - many staff at Espressotec have used it and verify its performance. One of the best features is the zero cleanup - you can actually eject the dried, compressed puck into a office waste basket. Since there is no cleanup it is ideal for the office desk, traveling, and camping.
Use it in a hotel room (use the Mr. Coffee for hot water or pick up an immersion heater); use it at the office ( use the hot water from the coffee room and your own great beans); use it camping ( just boil some water, since no cleaning is required you can make numerous coffees in a row and leave no footprint).
Why AeroPress Coffee tastes so good: Total immersion of the grounds in the water results in rapid yet robust extraction of flavour. Total immersion permits extraction at a moderate temperature, resulting in a smoother brew. Air pressure shortens filtering time to 20 seconds. This avoids the bitterness of long processes such as drip brewing. The air pressure also gently squeezes the last goodness from the grounds, further enriching the flavour. Because of the lower temperature and short brew time, the acid level of the brew is much lower than conventional brewers.
Laboratory pH testing measured AeroPress brew's acid as less than one fifth that of regular drip brew. The low acid is confirmed by coffee lovers who report that AeroPress brew is friendlier to their stomachs.
Some praise and testimonials of AeroPress:
"It makes the absolute best cup of coffee I've tasted in my entire life." Lewis Singer - Cooks Junction
"When used properly, AeroPress produces a remarkably good straight espresso and an excellent Americano-style taller cup. In fact, it produces a better espresso shot than many home machines that cost twenty or thirty times as much." Kenneth Davids – Author of: Coffee: A Guide to Buying Brewing and Enjoying Espresso: Ultimate Coffee Coffee Roasting: Romance and Revival editor of www.coffeereview.com
"Thank you for leaving us an Aeropress. I'm sipping a delicious Americano as I go through my emails--you have saved me from servitude to the office brew cup and I will be forever grateful! The funny thing is, I made it with the same pre-ground coffee the drip stuff is made of (just to do a more direct comparison) and, well, there is no comparison--one has flavor, the other has bitterness." Molly Watson - Sunset Magazine
"I didn't know the same coffee could taste so good." Peter Whitely - Sunset Magazine
"This is the first cup of coffee I've ever enjoyed without cream and sugar." Margie Gray – Professional Engineer and coffee lover
"Thus, the result with hardly any tinkering: Two very, very good mugs of coffee. I was able to taste qualities that I had mainly read about before, particularly on the floral, fruity, and sweet end of the spectrum. You've obviously made a fine discovery." Jeffrey Steingarten - Vogue Food Editor
"You must try it to understand why this device is the only coffee maker I will ever own again. Making an AeroPress coffee takes only 30 seconds (start to finish) and best of all, only takes a few seconds to clean! The only negative aspect about the AeroPress is that I cannot drink the burnt espresso anymore at our favorite bakery." Ellen Jorgenson - Seattle
"It's hard to believe that something so simple can give me a cup of coffee that's as good as what I get at my local coffee shop using equipment many times the Aeropress's price. I love being able to experiment with different amounts and types of coffee to get everything from a rich espresso to the traditional cup of American coffee."
