A Better Coffee Press
The AeroPress coffee maker is a new kind of coffee press that brews coffee under ideal conditions: proper temperature, total immersion, and rapid filtering. This results in amazingly delicious coffee with a wide range of beautiful flavors but without bitterness and with very low acidity. Since its introduction the AeroPress has become a much beloved brewer for serious coffee lovers and coffee professionals around the world.
The AeroPress coffee maker is most commonly used in the home kitchen but it is lightweight, compact, and durable, making it ideal for use when camping, backpacking, boating, or just traveling. The AeroPress is available with a zippered nylon tote bag (see photo at left) that makes it easy to travel with the coffee maker and a bag of coffee. Packs of 350 replacement filters (see photo at left) can be purchased from many retailers that carry the AeroPress.
The AeroPress Coffee Maker Compared to Other Methods
Automatic drip coffee makers:
Most automatic drip machines produce uneven extraction from the bed of coffee grounds: over extracting where the hot water lands at the center of the bed and under extracting at the edges*. 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:
Home espresso machines only brew espresso. The AeroPress can produce regular American 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:
Single serve pod brewers are undeniably convenient, but unfortunately they brew a stale cup of coffee.
French presses use coarsely ground coffee because of the size of the holes in their filters. The coarsely ground coffee particles have less surface area than finely ground coffee. The lower surface area necessitates a long steeping time to extract full coffee flavor. Unfortunately, this results in bitterness and acidity in the cup. The AeroPress uses espresso or fine-drip grind coffee with a big surface area to quickly extract rich, full flavor without bitterness.
The aeropress is a completely new kind of coffee press that brews absolutely delicious, rich coffee without bitterness. In one minute, the aeropress will make 1 to 4 cups of american or espresso style coffee. Coffee brewed in an aeropress is rich but smooth for good technical reasons. The first and most important reason is brewing speed. Coffee yields its rich flavors quickly. From when you add hot water to when you are ready to drink, the aeropress takes about 30 seconds, just like a fine espresso machine. The time required to fill a drip coffee maker pot or the steeping time required for a traditional coffee press is measured in minutes, not seconds, and because of that, they brew bitter, acidic coffee. When brewing coffee with an aeropress, you use very hot but not boiling water, you use finely ground coffee, and the filter prevents any grit from getting into your cup, all of which are additional important reasons aeropress brewed coffee is so remarkably delicious. Fast and convenient, the aeropress coffee and espresso maker makes one of the best cups of coffee you'll ever taste. This innovative uses the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure brewing to produce coffee and espresso that has rich flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness. It makes 1 to 4 cups of coffee or espresso, enough for 1 or 2 mugs, features a micro filtered for grit free coffee, and takes just 1 minute to make coffee, actual press time takes only 20 seconds.

With total immersion brewing, the AeroPress produces uniform extraction for the ultimate in full coffee flavor.
- Place a microfilter in the bottom cap of the AeroPress chamber and twist the cap tightly closed.
- Place two scoops of ground coffee from the included AeroPress scoop into the chamber.
- Stand the chamber on a sturdy mug, then proceed to pour hot water into the top of the chamber (175 degrees F is optimal).
- Stir the water and coffee with the included paddle for about 10 seconds.
- Insert the plunger into the chamber and gently press down about a quarter of an inch and continue to maintain that pressure for 20 to 30 seconds (gentle pressure is the key to easy AeroPressing).
You can also make a full carafe of coffee using the AeroPress in less time than it takes to brew a pot of drip coffee. Two 3-scoop or 4-scoop pressing, topped off with hot water, will fill most vacuum carafes.
The AeroPress is the result of several years of applied research by inventor/engineer Alan Adler, who conducted numerous brewing experiments, measuring the brew with laboratory instruments. The experiments demonstrated that proper temperature, total immersion and rapid filtering were key to flavor excellence. He then designed and tested dozens of brewers before settling on the AeroPress design. Adler's best-known invention is the Aerobie flying ring which set the Guinness World record for the world's farthest throw (1,333 feet).
Comparison of Brewing MethodsDrip Brewing
Traditional drip brewing passes water through a bed of grounds. When the water first drips into the bed, it is too hot and bitterness is extracted. As the water filters downward through the bed, it becomes too cool and extraction is weak. The water doesn't contact all of the grounds uniformly. Grounds at the edge of the bed are under-extracted, while grounds at the center are over- extracted and contribute bitterness.
Total immersion of the grounds in the AeroPress completely solves these problems. All of the grounds contact the same water temperature, and the brewing process is short and sweet. The gentle air pressure of the AeroPress also extracts extra flavor from the coffee. Ordinary drip brewers leave a lot of flavor in their soggy grounds.
The drip method cannot make a robust single cup because the small amount of water doesn't heat the bed enough for rich extraction. It is also slow. AeroPress makes one to four servings with a single pressing in less than a minute. The flavor is equally rich for any number of cups.
Most coffee lovers agree that espresso is less bitter than drip brew because of the shorter brewing time. However when we ran comparison taste-tests in the homes of espresso lovers, they all agreed that AeroPress espresso tasted better than the brew from their high-priced European espresso machines--why? The reason is that the total immersion brewing of the AeroPress yields a robust flavor at lower temperature--and lower temperature brew is far less bitter. Home espresso machines don’t allow adjustment of temperature. But even if they did, their lack of total immersion would not yield robust flavor at reduced temperature. In addition to smoother taste, the AeroPress has several other advantages over conventional espresso machines.
- Grind is not critical in the AeroPress. Grind is so critical in espresso machines that most grinders cannot produce a grind fine enough to make a good tasting shot! Special espresso grinders cost hundreds of dollars and require frequent cleaning.
- Espresso experts always adjust the grind when there are changes in humidity or batches of coffee. They throw away two or three shots while adjusting the grind in to achieve the desired 25-second shot.
- There is no tamping in the AeroPress. Books on espresso teach the art of just the right amount of tamping. They instruct the home barista to practice on the bathroom scale to learn exactly thirty pounds of pressure.
- There is no pre-warming of the portafilter head. In fact the AeroPress has no portafilter head!
- There is no maintenance. Espresso machines require regular cleaning and descaling with caustic chemicals. They also require disassembly and cleaning of the showerhead.
- There is no need to judge when to stop the pull. This is the most critical skill in using an espresso machine. As espresso lovers well know, most would-be baristas in coffee shops, hotels and restaurants run the pump too long--extracting sour bitterness from the grounds.
- With the AeroPress, the amount of water is predetermined by the user, who can brew any strength from weak to super-intense just by choosing the desired amount of water prior to pressing.
Many single-cup pod brewers have come to market recently. Some of these machines make American coffee. Others make espresso. They range in price from about $60 to several hundred dollars. A highly respected product review magazine tested the three most popular pod brewers and reported the flavor as "mediocre at best."
People see some similarities between the AeroPress and a French Press. Both use total immersion and pressure. But the similarities end there.
The filter in the French Press is at the top of the mixture. Because coffee floats, the floating grounds clog the filter and makes pressing and cleaning very difficult. Users are instructed to use only coarse ground coffee. But this reduces the amount of flavor that can be extracted from the coffee and necessitates long steeping times which extract bitterness.
Furthermore, even coarse ground coffee includes many fine particles. These small particles pass through and around the filter resulting in a bitter, gritty brew. The particles in the brew continue to leach out bitterness. Consequently French press users are advised to drink or decant the brew immediately. Also, some particles clog the filter screen making pressing and cleaning very difficult.
AeroPress coffee is micro-filtered. It so pure and particle-free that it can be stored for days as a concentrate. The concentrate can be drunk as espresso, mixed with milk for lattes, or diluted to make American coffee. French presses cannot make espresso or lattes. Finally, cleaning the French press is quite a chore. The AeroPress chamber is self-cleaning. A ten-second rinse of the plunger is all that's required.

Also, if you get this AeroPress maker, I highly recommend getting a ceramic hand-crank burr grinder, too. It really does make a difference in cutting back the sharpness and extracting a smoother, deeper flavor from the beans.
The process my girlfriend has settled on is:
1) Boil about 500ml of water (roughly a pint).
2) Insert the plunger into the chamber and turn the whole thing upside down.
3) Add 2 tsp coffee to the chamber.
4) Add water until you reach the "4" fill line.
5) Stir coffee and water.
6) Wet a paper filter, place it into the screen, then lock the screen into the bottom of the chamber.
7) Hum a happy tune for 30 seconds to 2 minutes (a longer wait means a stronger brew).
8) Turn the whole thing upright on top of your mug.
9) Press the plunger down slowly (thanks to physics, it's not possible to do it quickly) until it reaches the bottom.
10) Add a little more water to your brew, along with whatever else you like in your coffee.
If this seems somewhat complex, that's because it is (at least the first few times you do it), but it doesn't take long. Cleanup is even faster: you pop the filter out, slide the plunger out of the chamber, and give both a quick rinse with hot water.
But it's precisely the amateur-scientist complexity and potential for nerdy experimentation that makes the AeroPress such a cult sensation—there's even a World AeroPress Championship, which features try-it-home "recipes" like this one:
17 grams of coffee (light roasted fresh crop washed Sidamo from Heart roasters)
fine filter grind on a Mahlkönig Tanzania
paper filter rinsed with hot water
water from Maridalsvannet (brought in glass bottles from my flat in Oslo, Norway)
inverted brewing method
preheat aeropress for 10 sec
96 Celsius pour temp (gives a 90 C actual brew temp)
260 grams of water
50 sec steep time
20 sec press time – slow enough to get a clean brew but also some fines (yuck) and oils (yum)
stop pressing before air comes out
wait for the fines to sink and temp to cool, then pour but hold back the last part with the fines (taste sample for yourself!)
The cup: a clean brew with floral notes and taste of sweet lemons.
As the diversity of winning recipes makes clear, there seems to be no definitive best way to brew coffee with an AeroPress, only what's best for you. Give it a shot—you may just find your own holy grail brewing method!

Nothing particularly wrong with the other device, different niche, it can make espresso, this one can't. It's just down to the ease of use and cleaning.
You can make an AeroPress coffee and clean up in literally a minute, two tops, and after the first few times pretty much do it on autopilot: scoop coffee, hot water, stir, filter in the lid, close, turn over, press, open, hold it over the bin, eject the puck (with a quite satisfying kind of ker-chonk), vaguely wave it under the tap, done. Whereas the other device has fiddly little metal cups and things that you'll be trying to scoop the used grounds out of after making the coffee.
So yeah, if you're wondering if it'll be ok to use at work - this is the one to get.
I finally bit the bullet and got one on a whim and can't believe how quick and easy it is and how fast it is to clean. I've never really read reviews about people using them in busy offices but this is ideal for it!
It takes seconds to brew the coffee and condenses the grounds into a puck that you can drop straight into the bin and it good to go with a quick wipe. I wish I'd brought one years ago.
I went on to YouTube and discovered that this particular coffeemaker, which is hugely cheaper than the price I was originally expecting to pay, had garnered a big following, almost a cult-like following, and there were lots of reviews and methodology for the AeroPress. Okay, I was hooked and I thought I'd would want to see what it was like. When it arrived, with tote bag, 350 filters and various bits and bobs I was impressed. Very professional package I thought. I'd also ordered some metal filters as various reviews of these have been pretty favourable.
On to making the coffee. There are two major methods - the inverted method and the normal method and both are pretty easy to master with one viewing of a YouTube video. It's also possible to use either the metal filters or the paper filters and both produce different results in the tastes of the coffee. The paper filter seems to clean out virtually all the of the coffee leaving a very pure coffee drink. My previous cafetiere coffee always seem to leave a certain amount of mud at the bottom of the cup - not so with the AeroPress. The metal filter did leave residue but not very much and results in a stronger blend.
But the main reason for the purchase was cleanup. I have to say that the AeroPress scores very highly here. It's way easier to dispose of the grounds in my normal rubbish bin and it is even possible to retrieve the paper filter to use again. Apparently, the company recommends that you do reuse the paper filter. Given that you've already got 350 of them, one reuse takes this up to 700 cups, and they're pretty cheap to reorder anyway. If you're really lazy, cleanup takes approximately 5 seconds - after pressing the coffee into the cup, screw off the end and press the grounds into the bin. Genius!
All in all, I am a very happy coffee drinker now. I can use any coffee I like, I can use the frother that I purchased at the same time to make superb cappuccinos, and cleanup takes me next to no time. Not only this, I can use a variety of methods to produce exactly the coffee I want at any particular time. This has to be one of the best things I've ever bought off Amazon! And just a word of praise here, I even had it delivered a day earlier than originally scheduled.
It's really fast, you pour the water in, stir, and can push the plunger down pretty much straight away. I'm yet to have any grains leak into the mug either.
It's also really easy to clean, especially compared to a cafetière or coffee machine, you just eject a compressed coffee disc, and give the rubber plunger a quick rinse under the tap.
I can also confirm it does make less acidic coffee somehow than other methods I've used. I like my coffee really strong, and normally by my 3rd cup I start to get indigestion, whereas with this it's not until cup 6 or 7, which isn't healthy but is impressive
In terms of quickly making a single cup of proper coffee, I don't know of anything that can do it better.
It's rated on the basis of my own Aeropress, as I won't be using this one. My Aeropress makes excellent coffee, more quickly and more easily than a French press or a filter setup, and is easier to clean than either. It is as good coffee as I've drunk outside the large (and expensive!) commercial machines - and in fact stands comparison with them unless you need to make a significant number of cups at a time.
I'm typing this with Guns n Roses -It's So Easy! playing full blast, it's the unofficial theme tune for this product now, I'm having no argument. Once the kettle's boiled it's less than 60 seconds to an individual cup of coffee I can fine tune to my own perfect brew, dump the grounds in the bin and rinse under the tap, done.
My new biggest regret in life is not buying one of these as soon as they were invented. Don't let yourself make the same or a worse mistake. Buy one now.
Le pack est conforme à la photo et contient :
- l'entonnoir qui sert d'adaptateur sur les tasses étroites
- un portoir pour filtres avec 350 filtres papier
- une cuillère doseuse
- une spatule
- une trousse qui suffit tout juste à tout ranger malgré ses 35x18 cm : même si l'ensemble est léger, on est loin du compact !!!
Acheté pour éviter les cafés de station service en déplacement, je n'emmène que l'indispensable : l'AeroPress, quelques filtres et la cuillère doseuse + une tasse en verre (mini 7 cm d'ouverture) + du café moulu + thermos d'eau chaude.
Pour couper court à toute polémique autour des bisphénols A et autres : l'Aeropress est fabriqué en polypropylène, un plastique qui ne nécessite pas de bisphénol ou autre agent de polymérisation dans sa composition. Pour information, le polypropylène est le matériau de choix dans la fabrication des tubes de laboratoire et est particulièrement utilisé en biologie moléculaire, ou pour transporter des échantillons à analyser en recherche de polluants. Le patin du poussoir est en silicone, et les filtres en papier sont rinçables et réutilisables de nombreuses fois - jusqu'à 80 dixit l'inventeur.
18/03/2018 : Après 3 mois d'utilisation, je n'ai pas rencontré les problèmes signalés par d'autres utilisateurs de dégradation du cylindre ou du piston. Peut-être parce que je n'utilise pas d'eau au delà de 90°C (de toute façon, l'eau trop chaude brûle les arômes), et que je le rince juste à l'eau après utilisation...
De plus, depuis un mois, je l'utilise avec le filtre métal ULTRA d'Altura, qui remplace très bien le papier niveau filtration et plus pratique en déplacement.
Après plus de 2 ans d'utilisation, toujours aussi contente de mon Aeropress qui me sert désormais une à deux fois par jour au bureau, ou plus à la demande des collègues, et me permet de faire jusqu'à 4 cafés : il suffit de mettre plus de mouture et de rallonger après pression. Malgré cette utilisation très régulière, aucune usure notable n'est à déplorer (voir photos), pas même au niveau du poussoir en silicone. Je précise que je respecte toujours la consigne de température, puisque ma fontaine à eau chaude délivre de l'eau entre 80 et 85°C.
En revanche niveau filtre, je suis revenue assez rapidement aux filtres en papier fournis, et j'utilise l'astuce de l'inventeur qui rince ses filtres après utilisation et les utilise ainsi jusqu'à 80 fois ! Je n'en ai donc pas racheté et il m'en reste plus de la moitié depuis mon achat fin 2017 !!!
Par rapport à l'aspect compact, Aeropress a enfin sorti début 2020 une version de voyage tout-en-un incluant l'Aeropress dans une version redessinée, une cuillère doseuse compacte, un agitateur pliant, une boîte à filtres, le tout dans un mug avec couvercle. Elle est déjà sur ma liste de cadeaux... ;-)
Si mon commentaire vous est utile, un petit clic à gauche svp : j'achète mes produits et je ne suis pas sponsorisée. ;-)
My research put me in good stead when the package arrived from Amazon so as soon as it arrived I rinsed it out and started making my coffee. I bought Illy coffee from Amazon too and both arrived together the next day. The coffee the Aeropress produces is magnificent, smooth and strong just how I like it. If you wanted it stronger or weaker you can adjust how much coffee you use and I'm sure as time goes on I will tweak how I use it. I use the Inverted Method which you can search online for and this apparently produces a better coffee.
I am now into the swing of things and by the time I'm ready to drink my coffee the parts are already rinsed out and ready for my next drink.
I would highly recommend this item if you like nice coffee but don't want an expensive coffee machine, you will not be disappointed.

This thing produces a really great cup of coffee with little effort. It takes me <5 mins to prepare my coffee and clean it on each visit to the office kitchen. It definitely turns heads and makes colleagues quiz you about it.
Special Agent Dale Cooper would approve
I can’t say this is amazing or a revelation. It’s relatively easy but fiddly compared to some other brewing methods and (just my opinion) gives similar results to a plunger. If you don’t like bitter coffee then this is for you as the results are very sweet and smooth. It’s just not the holy grail of coffee everyone has talked it up to be.
That said the kit is of high quality, easy to wash and the travel bag is great for travel when you worry you won’t have access to good coffee!
