Since Alan Adler invented Aeropress (2005 – USA), it has quickly gained popularity for the unique flavor that gives us when we brew coffee. Full body flavors with intense aromas and long lasting aftertaste. Aeropress is so easy to use and clean. It is based on the mechanics of French Press and also, by using paper filter and a rubber seal the result is an excellent extraction. Have you tried it? If not, think again!
