Lift and Press With Aerobie's Hardy Espresso Maker


Any muscle-head can make decent espresso with this simple device. Just add grounds and hot water to the chamber and wait 10 seconds. Then insert the plunger and

Lightweight, durable, and compact; best unit for camping. Costs less than two weeks of store-bought lattes. Filters are a penny apiece. Makes up to four shots at once

Maintaining even pressure is impossible unless you're a robot (in which case, why drink espresso?). Single shots come out a little watery. No pods

Best manual one-cup coffee maker


Although it's not automated like pod coffee makers, reviewers agree the Aerobie AeroPress is inexpensive, compact and simple to operate. A paper filter and coffee grounds are placed in the plastic tube, which is held over a cup while hot water is...

Inexpensive, strong, smooth brew, simple to operate, easy to clean

Large amount of coffee required, preheated hot water needed, force required to press down the plunger, requires disposable filters

There are several hurdles that kitchen gadgets have to clear in order to be a success

Highly recommended

CoffeeGeek - Aerobie Aeropress - Ed Budzilowicz's Review


The main contribution I want to make is, I've discovered that the AeroPress can be used to make a demitasse, brewing directly into the demitasse cup (rather than making it in a mug and pouring into the demitasse). The advantage is you will, of course,...

inexpensive vs. espresso machine; elegant solution; ease of use; easy cleanup; portable

needs larger amount of grounds than with many other methods; hard to plunge if using fine grind

First off, I use the Aeropress with the Disk from the Coava Coffee Company. I have not used the standard paper filters.

Infinite amount of ways to brew ; Easy to clean ; Travel friendly ; A quick brew method ; Allows for brewing small amounts of coffee

Not the most eye pleasing device ; Rubber foot on plunger absorbs coffee smells

Ok I received my Aeropress today and put it through it's paces, and have some feedback to share. My first impression was that it seemed to be pretty well-built. The plastic plunging mechanism and holding cylinder are really quite solid, and made of...

Seems well built and sturdy. I expect it to last ; Produces very good coffee ; Ease of clean-up a plus

None at this time. Some might feel that it's a bit overpriced for what it is. I think this is a pretty fair value

A well engineered, robust product. The Aeropress is well built with sufficient excess material and design thought to give the impression of a product with many years of service to give. It comes with well considered accessories and a generous filter...

A well engineered with sufficient excess material and design thought to give the impression of a product built to last ; Well considered accessories ; Excellent coffee once technique developed ; Easy clean-up with little mess

Brewer won't fit into small cup so you are limited to quite broad cups

CoffeeGeek - Aerobie Aeropress - Buckley Terpenning's Review


This review will affirm or challenge what has been said in most of the other myriad reviews for this product.

Good quality moka-style coffee for incredibly low price. Easy clean up

Brew comes out much too cool for my taste, even with heated cup

CoffeeGeek - Aerobie Aeropress - Stephen Dixon's Review


I have made consistently good coffee with my Aeropress - Often better than expensive Espresso Machines. I wouldn't have thought that such a simple design could make a cup of coffee comparible to a quality espresso machine, but it really does. I use the...

Easy to use and clean - Excellent coffee

Makes one cup at a time

CoffeeGeek - Aerobie Aeropress - Anthony C's Review


This thing is awesome, its simple, it reminds me of stove top espresso in some ways, but the taste is cleaner and you can taste many more subtle flavors. The process is fun and makes a great show for curious guests. The filters are incredible cheap and...

Simple, portable, great tasting coffee

Plastic, lots of associated parts, lack of market competition
