            How does it work?

            Years of research have resulted in a technological breakthrough in coffee making, air-pressure brewing. Air-pressure brewing shortens filtering time to 20 seconds, avoiding the bitterness of long processes like drip brewing. Find best price
            Air pressure also gently squeezes the last goodness from grounds, further enriching flavor. In addition, the AeroPress espresso maker uses total immersion of grounds in water, resulting in rapid, yet robust extraction of flavor. Makes one to four cups of coffee or espresso in less than one minute.

            Total Immersion

            aerobie aeropress coffee makerTotal immersion of the grounds in the water results in rapid yet robust extraction of flavor at a moderate temperature, resulting in a smoother brew.

            More flavour, less acid

            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.

            How does the Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker taste

            Using the ideal water temperature and gentle air-pressure brewing yields rich flavor with lower acidity and potential bitterness.  Total immersion brewing results in uniform extraction of the ultimate in full coffee flavor. Other coffee makers drip hot water on a bed of grounds—the AeroPress method inspires an even, full saturation of hot water and coffee.  The Aeropress is micro filtered for grit-free coffee—unlike other press-type coffee makers that may allow some of the ground coffee to escape from the brewing chamber and seep into your cup.

            Speed

            One minute from start to enjoy. The actual press time takes only 20 seconds.

            Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker FAQ’s

            What size cup does it fit to?

            It comes with a funnel which has a smaller diameter than the press itself – just under 5cm. It will fit any regular tea cup or mug, but it’s too big for a demitasse or espresso cup.

            Is the Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker dishwasher safe?

            Yes. According to the instructions, you should use the top shelf to give it the longest life.
            It has been reported that you can get 3 or 4 years of use, despite putting it in the dishwasher. Though he did report some slight crazing/surface cracks, the press itself and the rubber were still working fine.

            Does the rubber gasket taint the taste of the coffee?

            Not that I have ever noticed, I have been using them now for a couple of years and I now own two and use them both for espresso and regular coffee. It is one of the best coffee makers I have come across.

            How many mugs of coffee does the Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker make in one go?

            In my experience the Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker makes up to two mugs of coffee at a time.

            Do I need to buy the actual filter separately? Im a bit confused about whether or not it comes with one?

            It comes with 350 paper filters you don’t need a metal one and you can buy replacement paper ones. For me I like the paper ones because they pop out neatly with all the coffee grounds and go in the bin which you can’t do with a metal one.

            Are the filter papers biodegradable?

            Yes they are.

            How much espresso strength coffee does one ‘press’ give you, one ‘shot’ or enough for two?

            As many as 4 or 5 if you fill it with enough coffee and water, it has markings on the side that correspond to the number expresso shots it makes.  Obviously, if you put less water in and the same amount of coffee you will get a stronger shot.
