Buyer's Guide: Aeropress Coffee Makers

How to Brew Using an Aeropress 

The AeroPress is an electric coffeemaker invented by Alan Adler, owner of AeroPress, Inc. It is made up of a long cylindrical tube, with an air tight rubber seal, much like a small plunger. Ground coffee is poured into it, and pushed through a strainer, then slowly strained through a mesh filter. This filtering system leaves nearly 99% of the solids behind, in what is called a catch basket.

There are many benefits of owning an aeropress: one of them is the speed in which one can make a cup of coffee with fresh ground coffee. This can be compared to the rapid brewing times of drip brewers, such as the French press. While these brews do a great job producing a delicious cup of coffee, they often take several hours to prepare. With an aeropress, you simply fill it with tap water, turn on the power, and in ten minutes you have a delicious hot beverage.

Another great thing about the aeropress is that you can use it for both coffee and tea. You simply brew the coffee in the tube, add hot water, brew it through the strainer, pour it over ground coffee in the cup, and enjoy your choice of beverage. If you prefer tea, you can also brew a variety of different blends with the same equipment. This is just one of the many ways that this wonderful contraption can be used.

One benefit that many owners of this type of coffeemaker rave about is the convenience. All you have to do is pour in the water, select a blend, click the "pint" button, and use the touch-screen to release the coffee. It's very easy! Some of us who own Aeropress brewers also appreciate the ease in which we can prepare other beverages. As an example, if you want a cappucino, all you have to do is add the desired amount of coffee to the water, put the lid on it, and place it into your mugs or tea cups. This is certainly not a difficult task to undertake with this brewer.

Of course, there are a number of different brewing methods used with this unique brewing device. The Aeropress comes with three different brewing methods. The first two methods use a paper filter to separate the cream from the milk - an effort to duplicate the process that happens when you make coffee but without the addition of cream. Although the resulting coffee may be rich in flavor, we found that we did not notice a massive difference between these two brewing methods.

The Aeropress International uses what they call the "Wet-cup" method for brewing. In order to do so, all you have to do is add the desired amount of water, place the sikes into the aeropress, add the coffee, click the button, and brew! We think that this is perhaps the best overall method for brewing an aeropress. The only downside to this method is that the Aeropress is constantly being refilled which can become expensive over time. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to this problem.

Two additional brew methods exist which are a bit more complicated. The first involves placing the lid of the aeropress onto the cup of coffee. Place a lid that will remain over the coffee for at least 60 seconds, allowing the steam to permeate the cup. Although this method requires a hot cup of coffee, we found that this produced the best cup of coffee, even with relatively low intensity. If you are looking for a richer flavor, you might consider trying this method.

The second method involves using the ground coffee in a regular drip brewer, such as a Tefal Fast Cup. All you have to do is purchase an inexpensive glass jug, fill with water, place your Tefal in the jug, and put in the ground coffee. While this might not be considered "aeropress espresso," it is certainly worth a shot. As the Tefal will run you about ten bucks, if you are looking for a way to make an aeropress without spending a lot of money, this is possibly the best option for you.
