Product Description

    Details

    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 (depending on grind and preferred strength) and then forced through a filter by pressing the plunger through the tube. The filters used are either the AeroPress paper filters or disc shaped thin metal filters. The maker describes the result as an espresso strength concentration of coffee, but its most frequent use is more in the filter brew strength.

    The device consists of two nesting cylinders. One cylinder has a flexible airtight seal and fits inside the larger cylinder, similar to a syringe.

    The cylinders are moulded of polypropolene, tinted a grey colour. The first Aeropress were moulded of clear polycarbonate, then later of copolyester copolyester, clear and later tinted. The materials change away from polycarbonate was driven by the market fashion for BPA-free materials, even though no leaching of this material had occurred. Later changes were for aesthetic and strength reasons.

    Preferred Preperation
    1. Inverted

      Baristas and coffee drinkers have also developed methods of brewing using an inverted (upside-down) AeroPress.

    2. In inverted brewing, the plunger is placed into the column from the beginning, close to the “top” of the column, and the entire AeroPress stands upside-down, resting on the top of the plunger. One or two scoops of ground coffee are added, followed by water, and the entire mixture then stirred. While that brews, a filter is placed into the filter cap and moistened to help it stick in place then the AeroPress cap is placed on top of the column and screwed into place. Lastly, once the desired brewing time is complete the AeroPress is either turned right-side-up and plunged normally or held at an angle and plunged horizontally.

      This method is more similar to the French press, particularly the extended brewing time in which the grounds and water sit together. This makes it useful for using grinds that wouldn't be optimal in the official method such as coarse grinds that might be used in a French press.
