The AEROPRESS Coffee Maker is a simple and effective way to make coffee:
- Water and grounds are mixed together for ten seconds.
- Then gentle air pressure pushes the mix through a micro-filter in 20 seconds.
- The total brewing time of only 30 seconds results in exceptionally smooth flavor.
Here is a short video demonstration.
The coffee tastes better than with other methods because the total immersion of the grounds in water results in rapid yet robust extraction of flavours. The air pressure shortens filtering time to 20 seconds avoiding the potential bitterness of long processes such as drip brewing. 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.
