The AeroPress is an alternative way to make coffee, American style or Espresso style for use in lattes, cappuccinos and other espresso-based drinks. AeroPress brews 1-4 cups per pressing. Ideal water temperature and faster brewing yields rich flavour with lower acidity and without bitterness. Its total-immersion system permits extraction at a moderate temperature and a short brew time. Water and coffee are mixed together for 10 seconds, then gentle air pressure pushes the mix through a micro-filter in just 20 seconds, which avoids bitterness. The air pressure also gently squeezes the last goodness from the coffee, further enriching the flavour. The total brewing time of only 30 seconds results in an exceptionally smooth brew. Includes 350 filter papers, coffee scoop, funnel and stirrer.
