fun toys so I could not wait to see how they had turned their creativity into the world of java. Here is the scoop on the AeroPress...
Using the ideal water temperature
and gentle air pressure brewing yields
rich flavor with lower acidity and
Total immersion brewing results in uniform
extraction of the ultimate in full coffee
flavor. Other coffee makers drip hot water
on bed of grounds, over extracting at the
center and under extracting at the edge.
Micro filtered for grit free coffee – unlike
other press-type coffee makers.
One minute from start to enjoy. The actual
press time takes only 20 seconds.
Now, I will say using the AeroPress take a little getting used to for those of us used to just dumping our coffee in a pot. First off, using finely ground coffee is key....this makes for the best cup. Secondly, you need to find the perfect amount for your tastes (1 scoop or 2?). Once you have the right coffee and establish your taste preference, you are golden. The AeroPress is a breeze to use and quick (key in the early morning!). My husband recently took this with him to a friends hunting camp and even in the rustic, great outdoors without any electricity, they were able to enjoy freshly brewed coffee. Hooray! The AeroPress is great for travel because it is small and easily portable. It also works just as well at home for fresh coffee each and every time. You can purchase the AeroPress for just $25.95 on Amazon. It seems I am not alone in my praise for the AeroPress. On Amazon there are almost 1000 reviews and it has 5 stars!! Well done, once again Aerobie!
I am so pleased to tell you that my friends at Aerobie are giving one lucky RBM reader an AeroPress of their own. Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter...
