  Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker & 500g of Spiller & Tait Signature Blend Ground Coffee Gift Box
The Aerobie AeroPress is a revolutionary new way to make perfect coffee every time and one of the best coffee makers available on the market. It really is so simple to use that once you own an AeroPress you won’t want to go back to instant or using high end machines.

The AeroPress produces a smooth rich flavoured brew with low acidity and no bitterness, thanks to the way it harnesses air pressure.

Find best priceOther machines drip hot water on to a bed of ground beans which results in over extracting the flavour at the centre and under extracting from the edges, so you waste your beans and do not get a true flavour, but the AeroPress brewing system extracts flavour from the whole of the ground beans providing the ultimate full flavour.  – Click here for the full review
