what materials is this made out of? I'm trying to avoid plastic food containers. Does anyone know if this is made out of glass or plastic?

Beginning on August 1, 2009, Aerobie, Inc. switched to making the AeroPress coffee maker out of copolyester along with polypropylene and thermoplastic rubber. All three materials are BPA free. Coffee brewed in the earlier version tested to be free of BPA but with the new availability of copolyester, we were able to switch to using all BPA free materials and eliminated even a perception of risk. Since our inventory was at zero on August 1st, we also began shipping BPA free AeroPress coffee makers on August 1, 2009.

More info that might help you make a decision (bottom line up front: NDE Laboratories of Pleasanton California analyzed AeroPress concentrated brew and reported that no BPA (Bisphenol-A) was detected).

Amazon's stock of AeroPress coffee makers has been BPA free for many months.

It seems like everyone feels so safe if something is BPA free, but it is still plastic, and it is exposed to hot liquids, and even if there's no BPA Im not convinced there aren't other chemicals leeching out of plastic that we have yet to discover. Just a thought.

We did a blind taste testing and found that people preferred coffee brewed in the AeroPress using water at the temperature of 175 degrees F (80 degrees C) so that is the temperature we recommend. Taste is of course personal so if you find that you prefer the taste of coffee brewed using hotter water, use hotter water. It will not damage the AeroPress.

By the way, for people who are think "but I like my coffee really hot", we humans can only drink hot liquids up to about 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Alex

We manufacture only one version of the AeroPress coffee and espresso maker. The chamber and plunger are made of copolyester (BPA free)and we add a light smokey tint. We started adding the tint about 9 months ago because people preferred the look. "80R08" is our stock number for a case of 8 AeroPress coffee and espresso makers. I do not know why sometimes the stock number is included as part of the product name. Alex Tennant, General Manager, Aerobie, Inc.
