A unique coffee maker for small amounts (brews about 7oz max)... and great for travel too. It makes a very clean, sediment-free cup in a short period of time, and is easy to clean up. Brewing with the AeroPress gives good control over the variables - you can easily adjust the water temperature, water-to-coffee ratio, or grind size, to change the results. Another thing we like is that all parts are BPA free.
The AeroPress is a coffee making system ideal for travel, or for anyone who likes to enjoy a smaller cup. For those who are interested in brewing with the Aeropress but like a larger cup of coffee, one can always brew a concentrate and then add hot water to preferred volume.
There's really only one problem we have with this brewer: the claims made by the manufacturer! This is not an espresso maker, as they claim, nor are other "made-for-TV" type exaggerations on the package true. This is a press brewer that makes a smaller volume of coffee, and can easily make very concentrated coffee, but will never be able to generate enough pressure to actually make espresso. We like it to make a quick, small, clean cup.
The Aeropress comes with a pack of 350 filters, filter holder, stirring paddle, measuring scoop, and funnel.
