A True Coffee Shop Experience in Your Home Kitchen
Be your own barista! Use AeroPress to brew different styles of coffee, including drip, espresso, and cold brew style coffee. Use espresso to make lattes, cappuccinos, and other coffee shop favorites right in your own kitchen.
Why Is AeroPress the Better Coffee Press?
Cold Brew Coffee in Just Two Minutes
Using the AeroPress, you can cut your cold brewing time down to about two minutes with full flavored results! Optimizing the contact between the surface of the coffee grounds and the water with a brisk one minute stir quickly enables delicious flavor extraction from the grounds.
New Materials for a Better AeroPress
Considering an upgrade? All of the AeroPress parts except the silicone seal and the paper filters have been made of polypropylene since July of 2014. We switched to using polypropylene because tests indicated the polypropylene is more durable than other materials we had previously used. Silicone is also extremely tough meaning the AeroPress is the now the most durable it has ever been. Materials used in the AeroPress are free of BPA and phthalates, are made in the USA, and are FDA and EU approved for use in contact with food.
|French Press||Automatic Drip||Pourover||Espresso Machine||Single Serve Pod Brewer|
|How does it differ from AeroPress coffee makers?||The coarsely ground coffee required for French press needs a long steeping time to extract flavor, resulting in bitterness and acidity. AeroPress uses a finer grind of coffee with a big surface area to quickly extract rich flavor without bitterness.||Most automatic drip machines produce uneven extraction from the bed of coffee grounds. The AeroPress totally immerses the coffee grounds in hot water, resulting in even extraction for rich, full flavor.||Pourover brewers depend on meticulous pouring and timing to produce a good-tasting cup. The AeroPress’s full immersion method means that a quick ten-second stir leads to great extraction for full flavored coffee.||Home espresso machines only brew espresso. The AeroPress can produce regular American style coffee, cold brew style coffee, or an espresso style concentrate which can be used like espresso in espresso based drinks such as lattes and cappuccinos.||Single serve pod brewers are undeniably convenient, but unfortunately they brew a stale cup of coffee.|

Make sure to wet the gasket before you move it through the outer tube. I wasn't doing that at first and started seeing wear quickly. Ever since I started getting the seal wet, I haven't seen any further degradation at all.
This was recommended by friends at a party recently. They raved, and I was skeptical, but the price was decent so I bought it and used it for a week. The directions are specific, but I took several attempts to work out exactly what I liked the best. The coffee tasted fine and I was happy.
However, today I finally ran a side-by-side blind test with my Mr. Coffee controlling for everything in my power to make identical cups.
Absolutely amazing difference. Today I am Crazy Happy. The drip coffee is bitter compared to the Aero. I am stunned that I have been drinking stuff this bitter my whole life. I am going to have to order a backup press because I am now spoiled with smooth tasting coffee.
I usually read dozens of Amazon reviews before making even simple purchases. But I have not read anything on this; even now as I type I could be an outlier, or perhaps repeating what everyone else is saying. If you like regular coffee try this thing out and taste test it for yourself.
Cons: This press is not well suited for making large amounts even though the instructions describe it. I feel like there will be a jumbo version of the press someday and I will be watching for it.
Making coffee in this press is a series of tasks, rather than set-it and forget-it. It takes me exactly 4 mins to make my morning travel mug. The instructions are clear, but I feel they could organize the actual steps for you better to work in the real world.
For anyone who cares, this is my 'streamlined' system.
Fill Pyrex to my line. Place in microwave 2:30 to get temp to 175 degrees
Grind beans; empty yesterday's grounds; rinse press; new filter
Add sweetener to travel mug; Press on top of mug; add grind
Add hot water to line; stir; press slowly; add remaining hot water to fill the mug.
Put press in sink and leave

If you are also making a transition from drip coffee to this, there is something to be said for the importance of blooming the coffee. This is the act of soaking the grounds with (hot) water and letting the built up gases in the coffee be released. This is why freshly ground coffee bubbles when you pour water on it. It should take about 20-30 seconds (depending on how fresh the coffee is) of stirring the slurry of soaked coffee to do the trick. If this is not done, you run the risk of gases being released while the water is passing through the filter, which may limit the amount of coffee that is extracted from the grounds. Also if you don't bloom, then after flipping over the press (using the reverse method), the gases will actually push water through the filter without any force on the plunger. If this happens, I find the best thing to do would be to let it drip through and only apply the force once the dripping slows down or stops altogether (because that is a rough indication that the gases have escaped). You can also try tapping on the press, though I'm not sure how effective this is.
There is also something to be said of grind size. Finer the grind the stronger the coffee will be, all else equal. So you will need less time to brew strong coffee. I also find smaller the grind size means the press requires more force to filter the water through the grounds, and that the force increases as the plunger goes down (this may have to do with more of the coffee grounds trapped on the filter). However, it’s never too hard to push down.
I don't recommend trying to press too hard on the plunger. This isn't supposed to be an espresso maker, and the device just doesn't have the capability to generate the pressure that most espresso makers can generate. Whenever I do try to press too hard, the liquid will actually bypass the filter through the openings on the side and end up getting grounds in the cup.
How much coffee grounds to put in the press is an entirely personal decision and will require some experimentation to find the right balance. There are plenty of articles on the web discussing the "golden ratio" of grounds to water, and there is no right answer to this. Many factors will go into this including type of bean, grind size, and how strong you like your coffee. If you need a good place to start, try it with 2-3 (heaping) teaspoons and go up or down from there.
Also, if you use paper filters don’t forget to wet them before using or you might get a papery taste.
Good product, you will learn the ins and outs of aero-pressing fairly quickly after your first few times.
