If your looking for a simple, cost effetcive way to brew delicous coffee simply and quickly then the Aeropress is for you.
Like a French Press but not...
The Aeropress works in a similar way to cafetiere or French Press. Made of food safe plastic the Aeropress acts as a big syringe. Water and coffee go into the lower chamber. A paper filter is placed in the cap. Then after 30-45 seconds of brewing time, the plunger is pushed down and this forces the water through the coffee and the paper filter resulting in a very smooth, full flavoured brew.
Benefits and Feautres:
Quick and Easy
Easy to clean after use. Just throw away paper filter and start again
Comes with 350 paper filters, stirrer, scoop, paper filter holder and funnel.
We sell paper filters seperatly, see to left of this page.
We found the best way to prepare coffee in the AeroPress as follows:
Add 1 scoop of freshly ground coffee. You need it ground finer than French Press but courser than Espresso somewhere in-inbetween would be perfect.
Use the "inverted" method! - We will show you how or just Google "AeroPress inverted method"
Boil fresh water and wait 120 seconds before putting water onto coffee 85C is ideal.
Add water just enough to cover ground coffee.
Add hot water to the top then plunge the Aeropress slowly!
