Why we choose it
The AeroPress is a device for brewing coffee. It was invented in 2005 by Aerobie president Alan Adler.
Coffee is steeped and then forced through a filter by pressing the plunger through the tube. The filters used are either the AeroPress paper filters or disc 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 copolyester cylinders. One cylinder has a rubber plunger and fits inside the larger cylinder to create an airtight seal, similar to a syringe.
