The AeroPress® Coffee & Espresso Maker is a small, portable and very easy to use 'coffee maker' made by the frisbee company Aerobie®: http://aerobie.com/products/aeropress.htm The AeroPress is quite popular with coffee-enthusiasts and has been mentioned in many threads on OCAU, however I couldn't find a dedicated thread ... So thought I would post some pictures and details on how easily you can make some really decent coffee. Current price for the AeroPress is about $35 / $45 / $55 (AliExpress / Ebay / Local online coffee suppliers), but can be picked up under $30 new when on sale. Essentially the AeroPress is a large 'coffee syringe', that presses the coffee out under pressure via a filter: While those who take their coffee very seriously will use digitial scales, accurate thermometers and liquid measures, I tend to throw mine together in the morning to drink in the car on the way to work. No matter how you put it together some decent coffee is a nice start, ManaBean's Jamocha, about 1 scoop: Medium-fine grind, somewhere between espresso and filter grind: The first thing to do when you get your AeroPress is to discard and ignore the instructions, insert the plunger, turn it upside down and dump in the coffee ('Inverted AeroPress'): Temperature controlled kettle helps get the water to the 'right' temps, or let it come to the boil and then rest some: Add water and stir to wet/mix well: Then fill to the top of the AeroPress: Wait a minute or two, add the filter to the filter-basket and run some water over it: The AeroPress comes with a few hundred paper filters, but after-market perforated or mesh stainless filters are available, and are reportedly better. (Unfortunately Kaffeologie want to charge $45 just to ship one, so still looking). Carefully invert and press down to filter and extract the coffee directly into your glass, some pressure is required but it's not usually that difficult: The IKEA-silicon mat or some similar non-slip surface is highly recommended for this part of the process. Hot liquids, pressure, slippery surface and pre-coffee early mornings don't mix well. .... and you are done: A very decent and more than acceptable (better than coffee from most non-dedicated-specialty shops) shot of coffee. While they advertise it as an 'Espresso' maker there is no crema, but it does make a great long-black: Clean-up is a breeze, the AeroPress essentially cleans itself as you push it through, just unscrew the filter and push out the spent coffee: Maybe give it a wash once a week or so.
