The History of the AeroPress
The Aeropress was created by Stanford University engineering instructor, Alan Adler. The inception of AeroPress can be put down to one specific conversation between Adler and the wife of his company sales manager, they were griping about the fact that when you tried to make a single cup of coffee in a drip machine, it came out watery. From then on, Adler's mission was set and since the official release in 2005, the AeroPress remains one of Adler's most famous to date.

My wife thinks it takes a little too long to make a cup now, so she still uses her k-cup refillable pod and my good beans... but that's fine.
Honestly, I have no patience -- and making a regular french press in the past was a pain - I think mostly because of the cleanup time. With the aeropress, cleanup is the simplest thing ever!
I will mention - the instructions are stupid -- keep the aeropress inverted while you let the grinds / water stoop for a minute... .THEN invert on your cup and press. If you invert and let it stoop (as instructions mention) -- it all drips out through the filter and there isn't much left to press after 60 seconds.
I'm a huge fan of Black Rifle Coffee Company (BRCC) and these guys have a great short video demonstrating the best use of the aeropress.... I've found it to make the smoothest, nicest cup of coffee with virtually any bean now - 4 months of super, duper happy coffee drinking!
The AeroPress is an unassuming little kit consisting of a plastic tube, plunger, and filter chamber, along with a few tools to assist in the prep and brewing process. The whole package seems rather strange when compared to the conventional drip machines that mass produce cups for the multitudes, and the AeroPress certainly lacks the visual finesse of the glass and stainless steel French Press. But you’ll quickly overlook its deficiencies after using it a few times.
Here are a few places where the AeroPress excels:
The AeroPress consistently brews some of most delicious coffee you’ll ever taste. It works by fully immersing coffee grinds in hot water and creating a seal with the plunger to press the coffee through a filter using gentle air pressure. The resulting cup is flavorful, clean, and low in acidity and bitterness. This method provides so much control over the brewing process that you can make whatever adjustments fit your tastes.
Easy setup and clean up
Using the AeroPress is simple. Add coffee grounds and hot water. Stir. Press the plunger down gently. That’s it.
The entire brewing process takes about a minute for one to three cups.
Clean up is easy as well. Twist off the filter chamber, aim at a garbage can, and press the plunger. The used grounds and filter will fall into your garbage with a satisfying “plop.” Rinse the kit. You’re done.
In comparison, drip machines are messier, cleaning a French Press is a nightmare, and coffee pods are filling landfills because they aren’t recyclable.
The AeroPress retails for around $30. This is significantly cheaper than some other coffee makers that produce a similar quality cup. Two weeks of daily use will pay for itself if it replaces your Starbucks addiction.
It might not win any awards for visual design but the AeroPress’s plastic body is lightweight and compact. This is great for home storage and ideal for traveling.
Coffee geeks love the AeroPress so much that several different brew methods are available all over the web. It’s fun to see what kind of techniques and preferences people have developed. An entire coffee culture is developing around the AeroPress and it continues to grow.
I was introduced to the AeroPress only a few months ago but it has quickly become my daily driver. So if you’re looking to step up your coffee game I can’t recommend it enough.
This review was originally published by Geekskills at WordPress.
I got a few good years use out this replacement before the seal failed again, for no obvious reason as the plastic tube looks fine and I always empty and clean the apparatus immediately after use. This time when I called customer service, I was treated brusquely and told to just buy the rubber seal, even after I told her that I think the tube might be a problem since the rubber seal still looks perfect. She clearly wasn't interested in my feedback and seemed eager to end the conversation.
So I realize this company is no longer interested in quality control, because if you can make money selling replacement parts, where is the incentive to make a product that will stand the test of time? And by test of time, I don't mean a coffee maker that I can pass on to my grandchildren, but maybe something that would last, I don't know, even five years?
At this price point for the initial purchase coupled with the parts replacement rate, not to mention the ridiculous price of the filters, I just now feel that there are less expensive ways to make a good cup of coffee and with equipment that doesn't fall apart on a regular basis.
I won't be buying that seal now. I will be moving on to cold brew or back to pour overs. Goodbye, AeroPress.

I first notices the AeroPress on a BBC film on their website, where it was pitted against some expensive and middle of the road coffee machines, in the blind test, the AeroPress won. It looked interesting, partly because I like manual devices (I've spent a fortune fitting solar panels to my house, so don't like to waste energy), partly because it prefers water at 80 degrees or so, a few times during the year, the British summer supplies enough solar energy to get my hot water tank to that temperature, via thermal solar panels (in the winter, a wood burning stove provides ample hot water) and perhaps mostly out of fascination to try an unusual product.
I've owned this for just over 4 months, it has been used daily to make anything from 3-9 mugs of coffee and every single cup has been great. I use a hand burr grinder which produces consistent results to grind the coffee quite finely. I find for the best coffee (for my taste) the water needs to be in the 80 degree level - I measured my kettle through the cycle and now know when the steam levels indicate this is the rough temperature. Hotter water seems to make it more bitter, cooler water more smooth but less interesting, but even then I've never had a really bad cup from this device.
I religiously rinse the bits after making the coffee, and every couple of days it gets washed in detergent. I reuse the paper filters by rinsing under fresh warm water, which if left to dry before re-using gives them a considerable lifespan. I reckon to get 1 month out of each filter making one cup of coffee a day, I only dispose of a filter when it gets too difficult to push the coffee through, or it's inconvenient to rinse them. If anything by cup 5 or 6 there's a noticeable reduction in coffee flowing through with plunging, at this point every cup is at it's best. Damp filters have a tendency to tear, I found that it's best to make sure you always use the reused filter the same way up, which the indentations show and eventually one side is darker than the other.
If you buy this you may find the best results come from being a scientist, you've got many variables to play with, each will affect the coffee in some way, beans, quantity, grind, water temperature, age of filter, stir or not, brewing time and probably many others all impact the coffee.
Perhaps the best thing is when I'm away from home staying in a Travelodge, the choice is no longer between a sachet of Nescafe instant or £2 at the nearest Costa. This is light, easy to pack and well worth the effort of taking away.
All in all I'm more than pleased, it's easily lived up to the hype (in my opinion) and after well over 100 cups of coffee, it's already paid for itself. Now all I need is someone to come up with a drying rack for the filter papers and I'll have the perfect coffee 'machine'.
It's easy to operate and any ground coffee can be used with it. It's also small enough to travel with as I do regularly.
This is my second aero press after the rubber on last one failed after a year of constant use. I think they had a stint with a different manufacturer as my brother bought one year's ago and it's still going strong, I'm happy to say the lettering on this one resembles his perfectly so maybe they are back to the good factory.
Tip: I don't take much notice of the numbers just one scoop of coffee then fill with water for a big mug of strong coffee. Also I prefer the upside down method which is a little risky but YouTube will guide you on that.
I will always have an aero press In my kitchen!
It's easy to use, easy to clean and is super-consistent. I haven't tried any of the recipes such as late or cappuccino yet as I drink coffee black, but the instructions make it look pretty easy.
Anyhoo - 100% recommend this to anyone who loves coffee. Brilliant gadget.
It is fiddly to get used to and I needed to be shown how to use it properly as it kept leaking. To use, I turn it upside down, resting on the plunger. Put a scoop of coffee in, pour in water. Put a filter in the cap and pour hot water through the filter. Then place the cap & filter on top and (this is the important bit) push the plunger slightly to expel any air inside. When I didn't do this step, I would turn the whole thing over and the coffee would just drip through the filter before I even had a chance to press the plunger. If you leave the coffee too long, or push the plunger down too far (crushing the coffee), it gives quite a bitter taste, but otherwise it works like a charm - just needs a little getting used to.
I got this about 6 months ago and it still seems to be working well. However, like I read in another review, it doesn't seem to hold as much water any more as the rubber seal doesn't seem to stay in place until it gets to about the 2 or 3 cup mark. I'm not sure what the cause of this is.
