The AeroPress is a device for brewing coffee. It was invented in 2005 by Aerobie president Alan Adler. Coffee is steeped for 10–50 seconds and then forced through a filter by pressing the plunger through the tube. Brewing time with an Aeropress is shorter than brewing with a French press and can last as little as one minute and 30 seconds. There’s no grit, which is common with with French press coffee. Coffee made with an Aeropress has a more mellow taste, but it’s still strong. Makes 1 to 4 cups of coffee or espresso. Includes a pack of 350 micro-filters with purchase.
