How to BrewAeropress
Invented in 2005 by Albert Adler, boss of Aerobie and maker of world record-breaking frisbees, the Aeropress is a small, lightweight, two-tubed brewing device that cleverly combines immersion and pressure. The coffee is brewed for a short length of time before being forced through a filter paper by pressing the plunger into the tube.
It’s become a firm favourite among speciality coffee drinkers because of its value for money (you can pick one up for less than £30), ease-of-use and ability to produce cafetière or pour-over style coffee in seconds.
But the best thing about it, in our opinion, is its portability. It’s small enough to fit in your travel luggage or back-pack, and you don’t need to get all precise with a gooseneck kettle if you don’t have one.
