What it does is allow all of the water to stay in contact with all of the beans during the entire brewing process, and allows for many stirs to enhance extraction, for maximum flavor and possibly one of the best coffees you will taste.
It’s a bit fussy. It doesn’t make a ton of coffee. It isn’t espresso either. However, it consistently makes fantastic tasting coffee and stands among all the great coffee makers I’ve ever had.
From Moka to espresso, to drip machines, to Keurigs, and cousin french presses, this Aeropress is a highly commendable representative of what quality coffee brewing means.
I highly recommend you try an espresso roast ground for the Aeropress.
Makes 1 to 3 cups per pressing in about one minute
Microfilter means no grit in your cup (unlike a French press)
Available with zippered nylon tote bag – great for travel
