AEROPRESS HISTORYAeroPress is a fun and very user-friendly brew method. It was released in 2005, promising to deliver a ‘uniform extraction of the ultimate in full coffee flavor’, and has never looked back since. AeroPress is Invented by a modern day legend Alan Adler, the American inventor and founder of Aeropress Inc. who also invented Aerobie, known for setting many world records for the farthest thrown object!
AeroPress markets itself to reduce brew time and to produce a rich tasting, complex coffee with lower acidity and without undesired bitterness. It’s comparatively affordable, very travel friendly and the best part about AeroPress as a brew method is that it’s incredibly versatile. You can brew it upright or even upside down (often referred to as “inverted”).
HOW DOES THE AEROPRESS WORK?The Aeropress is a hybrid brewing method that combines immersion and pressure brewing: the ground coffee is infused for a short time in hot water, then the beverage is filtered under pressure as if it were in a large syringe.
The AeroPress is made of three parts: a cylindrical brewing chamber, a plunger with a rubber seal that fits into the brewing chamber, and a filter cap that attaches to the brewing chamber on the opposite side of the plunger.The entire AeroPress brewer, with the exception of a rubber seal, is made out of polypropylene. It is extremely durable and safe to use for coffee brewing.
The Coffee obtained with the Aeropress is a mix between espresso and filter coffee. Experts say that it has the brightness of the espresso and the texture of filter coffee. The AeroPress is capable of brewing a full cup of coffee in less than two minutes, faster than almost every other method in existence. It also allows us to break some coffee brewing rules that need to be followed in almost every other case.
Brewing coffee with an Aeropress is efficient, convenient and the result is a really good coffee. There are two main preparation techniques, the traditional method and the inverted method. It can make a bold cup too and at the same time a smooth fruity beverage.
