History of the Aeropress

The AeroPress was invented by Aerobie in 2005. In terms of coffee brewing equipment, it’s relatively new to the speciality coffee game.

The Aeropress uses aerodynamics to brew fantastic coffee. It’s a manually powered three-piece coffee brewing device that allows you to create espresso-like coffee. It’s portable and durable and perfect for the office, travel or even camping.

Making coffee with an AeroPress is easy once you know how. When you’ve finished brewing your cup, you’re left with a rich, clean coffee, void of any coffee ground sediments – perfect for a solo drinker.
