The AeroPress® Coffee and espresso maker utilizes a breakthrough in coffee press technology to brew the smoothest, richest coffee you will ever taste. Because it uses finely ground coffee and pressure, the brewing process takes about 30 seconds and produces remarkably rich but smooth coffee without bitterness and with very low acidity. In contrast, slow gravity powered and long steep time brewing methods over extract and produce bitter, acidic coffee. One pressing with the AeroPress brews a mug of American style coffee or 1 to 3 shots of espresso style coffee which can then be used to make delicious lattes or other espresso based drinks. The AeroPress micro-filter removes all grit from the coffee, resulting in an enjoyable grit free cup. And the only thing easier than brewing coffee with an AeroPress is cleaning up after a pressing. It takes seconds. The AeroPress is a great addition to any kitchen but since it is durable, lightweight, and compact, it also makes the perfect companion when traveling, camping, boating, or just going to work.
