I own three of Aeropresses, and I have convinced countless friends and strangers to get ones for themselves. I also have given them as gifts. I am sold. :-D
The Aerobie Aeropress single cup coffee maker was invented by the creator of the Aeropress flying disk and is only a few year old. It makes one of the best cups of coffee bringing out subtle flavors like chocolate, berry, cinnamon and more. The coffee maker is portable and very rugged and I have taken it on many camping trips. Simply boil a little water, put the filter in and screw it together. Add water, stir and press. You can then add more water to make an Americano or just enjoy your espresso style shot.
Here is the description from their ad.
- Unique coffee espresso maker uses total immersion and gentle pressure to produce coffee with extraordinarily rich flavor
- Makes american style coffee or an espresso style shot perfect for use in lattes or cappuccinos
- Made in the usa
- Micro filtered coffee so pure and particle free that it can be stored for days as a concentrate for Cold brew coffee
- Included travel bag makes this item great for traveling the world and brewing great coffee
While not a true espresso shot like we got from our Nuova Simonelli Appia, it is still a really incredible shot for a portable and inexpensive coffee maker. BTW, I keep one at home and one at my office. Two Thumbs Up!!!
Here a video with me making a shot one handed while holding my camera. I really need to reshoot this. :-)
