The AeroPress is a functional, portable, simple, and easy-to-use device that has made a huge impact on the coffee industry. It was developed in 2005 by Alan Adler, inventor of the Aerobie, and is made from BPA-free polypropylene. This particular coffee maker is similar to a french press, but is smaller and uses a micro filter. The AeroPress has now become so popular now, it has its own championship circuit and is considered a fantastic way to brew that smooth cup of coffee. Using the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure to brew, the AeroPress yields a rich flavour with lower acidity and without bitterness. Total immersion brewing results in a uniform extraction for a full coffee flavour, while other coffee makers drip hot water on a bed of grounds, which can disperse unevenly. The AeroPress uses the micro filters for grit free coffee and it only takes one minute from start to finish! The actual press time takes only 20 seconds.
