Although it is a new contender in the ring, the Aero Press is making waves amongst coffee aficionados. The Aero Press was first invented in 2005, making it one of the newest ways to brew coffee. It is a unique device that creates a clean and flavorful cup of coffee.
What is an Aero Press?
The Aero Press is made from plastic and is made to sit on top of a coffee cup. After the Aero Press is filled with ground coffee and hot water, a stainless-steel mesh plunger pushes the hot water into the coffee cup. The pressure from the plunger helps extract flavors and oils from the ground coffee. There are no paper filters used with an Aero Press.
Benefits of Aero Press Coffee
Coffee connoisseurs prefer using an Aero Press to brew coffee because of its many benefits:
- Brew on the Go
The Aero Press is incredibly portable. It is light, does not take up much space, and requires no additional accessories outside the small Aero Press. You can brew the same cup of coffee while traveling as you can in the comfort of your kitchen.
- Endlessly Customizable
Other brewing methods require specific grinds or preparation methods. With the Aero Press, you can change variables, such as the grind size, water temperature, or extraction time, to perfect the final taste of your coffee. Lavie Coffee has various grinds available depending on your preferred preparation method. We also offer whole beans if you prefer to grind your own coffee beans.
- Single Serve Coffee
Not everyone drinks an entire pot of coffee, and leaving the coffee pot plugged in every day is a massive waste of electricity. The Aero Press is perfect for brewing a single cup of coffee. It requires no electricity to function and can be used anywhere.
How to Brew Coffee Using an Aero Press
Begin by heating water to a near boil. Fill the Aero Press with your desired ground coffee. Pour the hot water over the ground coffee and wait 30 seconds before stirring. Next, you should use the Aero Press plunger to force the water through the ground coffee and into your cup.
The Aero Press is a game-changer for a traveling professional or someone who enjoys a single cup of coffee daily. Visit Lavie Coffee to see our full selection of coffee beans available. We offer high-quality coffee beans that will enhance the flavor of coffee created by your Aero Press.
