We present you another device in which you can prepare delicious coffee – you just need specialty coffee and to follow a few simple steps
To many, the AeroPress is still relatively new coffee brewing device. However, there are some, including barista champions, who claim that with this seemingly strange pot, you can make the perfect cup of coffee. We share their opinion, because for us two factors are necessary for the preparation of the perfect cup of coffee: quality or in other words, specialty coffee and specific skills for its preparation in each particular pot or machine with which you want to experiment.
With AeroPress you will find more nuances in the innumerable taste characteristics of coffee. Trust us and try it!
AeroPress is a device in which you can brew coffee using pressure.
Maybe you first think of espresso when we mention the word pressure. In addition, however, there are several other devices for making coffee by pressure. These are the Moka pot and the AeroPress, about which we will talk about here.
Coffee brewing which uses pressure relies on… pressure for extraction and requires a short preparation time and results in a more intense extract. However, the taste of all three devices is different. And although to some extent we can compare espresso with a Moka pot – still, the second device is born as a desire at home for people to be able to make a drink with a similar espresso and intensity taste, the AeroPress offers a completely different taste experience.
AeroPress is the first coffee pot that combines accessibility and simplicity and the result is a delicious first-class coffee beverage.
AeroPress is a simple and easy to use device. Its fans claim that with it you can prepare a drink with better taste, but with the same intensity of espresso. The quick process extracts better the flavour of roasted coffee beans and the result is a drink with a rich taste, without bitterness and with lower acidity.
Short history of AeroPress
Alan Adler, an electrical engineer, Stanford lecturer, toy manufacturer, inventor and founder of Aerobie, has been developing nuclear reactor control systems and aircraft instrument systems for 25 years.
In the mid-1970s, he focused on consumer goods and began working in mechanical and aerodynamic toys. He sold the rights to his first product, a flying disc called the Skyro, to the Brothers Brothers in 1978.
In 2004, Adler set out to invent a new coffee pot, as he found himself dissatisfied with the traditional coffee taste. He particularly disliked the bitterness of the drink. As a true inventor, he began to look for a solution by carefully examining traditional methods. He found that a longer extraction time led to a bitterer taste of the coffee beverage. Therefore, he invented a device in which air generates pressure to speed up the extraction process. He calls it the AeroPress.
At first, no one took the new pot seriously. But as various baristas began experimenting with it, it gradually gained popularity. And – all over the world.
Do you know that… Since 2008, the World AeroPress Championship has been held? The first edition in Oslo, Norway, may have had only three participants, but in 2018 they were already 3,157 from 61 countries!

Start intensive pouring of water with a temperature not hotter than 92-94 degrees C. Stir with a spoon for about 30 seconds.
Place the smaller cylinder on top. With both hands, start pushing the cylinder down, slowly, for about 20 seconds.
Total extraction time about 1:30 to 2:00 minutes.

How to maintain your AeroPress?
You must clean your AeroPress after each use. After making a delicious cup of coffee, discard the coffee grounds and be sure to press the joint well down. This will prevent any compression of the seal.
AeroPress is also dishwasher safe.
Otherwise you can clean the cylinder very simply by rinsing it with water. For the rubber sealing you can use an ordinary brush under tap water. If the cylinder becomes sticky, we advise you to wash it with vinegar. As for the seal at the end of the piston, you can wash it from time to time in hot soapy water.
