AeroPress™, an entirely new way to brew coffee. Make great regular coffee, espresso or lattes right in camp. Life's too short to drink bad coffee. If you like coffee, you'll love your AeroPress!
  • Outdoor Gear Lab gave the AeroPress a Top Pick Award for 2012. Of the coffee makers in its testing, "The AeroPress came out as the distinct taste winner..."
  • Hot, not boiling, water is mixed with the grounds for only 10 seconds, extracting the richest flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness.
  • Then, gentle air pressure pushes the brew through a micro-filter in about 20 seconds.
  • Brew up to four shots of super-smooth espresso at a time. Dilute with hot water for a great cup of regular coffee or with milk for an excellent latte.
  • Cleanup is a snap. Eject the "puck" of spent grounds and rinse or wipe the plunger to remove the coffee oils.
  • Lightweight, indestructible and totally portable, the AeroPress is great for the outdoors person who wants to enjoy the same great coffee out in the wilds that they get at their favorite coffee shop.
  • Comes with 350 micro-filter papers (that can be rinsed and reused), a coffee measuring scoop, stirrer and funnel for adding coffee ground to the AeroPress.
  • The AeroPress isn't just for camp coffee. You'll find that it's the only way you want to make coffee at home too.
  • And why pay $3.00 or more for a coffee drink when you can now quickly and easily make as good a cup, or better, at home for mere pennies! Use the money you save to buy more boating gear!
  • Made in the U.S., by the same people who brought you the amazing Aerobie® Flying Ring!

    Q:

    What type of coffee grinds do you recommend using? I was using Peets French Roast and that worked very well but I recently switched to a brand from Trader Joes that was ground very fine. Its impossible to push the press all the way down.

      We've noticed this problem at times, but didn't think it was related to the grind, just the powerful seal. I usually just release pressure a bit, then push again, even putting the press on the ground and using weight. Impossible? interesting…. and this is THE BEST coffee we've ever made. We take it everywhere. And we use a fine ground coffee, always. Katie

      in the middle of drip and espresso grind. I also find that wetting the rubber makes it easier to depress.

      A:

      I highly suggest you grind your beans just prior to brewing.  Get a portable grinder and bring beans.  I own several types and all are adjustable on the grind.  the best for travel is the Hario slim grinder.  The finer the grind , the stronger the brew.  Finer grinds will also act to clog the Aero press filter.  I suggest trying a coarse grind then a fine grind and adjust between the two until you're happy.

      Hmm, I've used an electric grinder and a hand grinder, both of which grind pretty fine, and never had a problem. And I often reuse filters. Guess you'll have to back up a level or two. I do love my AeroPress(es). I discovered the AP for NRS, one of my proudest contributions!

      Hi,
      I grind my own, slightly coarser than espresso, and finer than for drip coffee. Some small roasters will even do an "Aeropress" grind for you, as this press seems to be quite well known among some of the coffee cognoscenti. For an example, here's the web site of my favorite roasters: http://www.adventurecoffeeroasting.com. If you can't get an Aeropress grind and you don't grind your own, go with a drip grind, though the results aren't completely satisfactory - but - there is the option of using a stainless steel filter, you can find one at http://kaffeologie.com. For that filter use the drip grind. A finer grind gives a bit too much mud and (I think) not as good a crema extraction. Your press needs to be worn in a bit before the filter fits, or at least that's my experience.
      For whole bean outback grinding, I use a Porlex Mini. (You can find it on Amazon, among other places). An added bonus is that it's narrow enough to fit inside the Aeropress for packing. There are other small hand grinders that should also be fine to use.

      We use a little coarser than expresso, roughly 1/2 way between that and fine.

    Q:

    does the filter need replacing? If so, how often and how much do they cost?
    What size mug does it take?

    Thanks

      A:

      Bernadette, the AeroPress uses a disposable paper filter and the unit comes with 350 of the filters. The filter can be reused several times but they're inexpensive enough ($5.00 for another 350) that you don't have to. The base can fit over a mug with a top opening of 2 3/4"-4 1/4". Makes great coffee; I've been using it daily for years!

      Comments about AeroPress Coffee & Espresso Maker:

      I keep my Aeropress in a small cooler and take it with me everywhere. Along with a pound of ground beans and my candy thermometer (in case I want to geek-out about temperature) I have all I need to make a good cup of coffee.

      But it's more than a good cup of coffee. It provides a very smooth cup of coffee. The gentle handling of the beans with the 175-ish degree water coddles even cheap beans. I was able to blow away a co-worker with the quality of coffee I can make from a old tin of Yuban that we found in a cupboard at the office.

      I really appreciate the simple clean-up. After pressing, simply unscrew the filter holder and pop the "puck" of coffee grounds out of the bottom into your compost bin. If you're camping and conserving water you can just wipe off the end of the plunger and call it good until next time.

      I'm out on patrol now and it's waiting in the back of my car for the next gas-station with an instant-hot. I don't leave home without it.

      Oh, and it pays for itself every two weeks with the money I save on buying lattes and tipping baristas.

        Comments about AeroPress Coffee & Espresso Maker:

        I bought the AeroPress mainly for the incomparable flavor it achieves. I had been drinking AeroPress brew from my local espresso bar and was amazed at how it didn't need to be "doctored up" to taste good. I now drink my coffee black because I'm not having to try and hide any weird flavors with sugar or cream. Another big plus to the Aeropress is that it only takes 2 minutes from the time you boil your water, to the time you can drink your cup of excellent coffee. There aren't any grounds in the cup either, not like with a french-press. Good job, Aerobie!

          Comments about AeroPress Coffee & Espresso Maker:

          We enjoy great coffee (Seattleites)! Most places we travel to have mediocre (drip) coffee and non-existent espresso, or none at all. This small gadget makes extraordinarily good coffee. It is light, easy to pack, and a snap to clean. If you must tote all your potable water and pack out garbage, this device minimizes water waste and refuse generation. Clearly you must take good, ground beans and clear water but otherwise this makes coffee truly worth drinking no matter where! If you vacation in remote but lovely locations, like the Big Island, this device allows you to have your coffee and isolation too. Can't be beat!
