AeroPress brewing systemBorealis Coffee Company
At Borealis, we love the Aeropress. It's simple and easy to use but with loads of room for experimenting (for those interested). It's small and pretty rugged, so it's great to throw in an overnight bag and take with you on the road (that's what we do!).
We tell people that the aeropress is sort of like a "poor-man's espresso," in that you are forcing the water through the grounds instead of having the water trickle through. It creates a rich, creamy cup of coffee that really tastes amazing. Read about our style of AeroPress-ing on the Brew Methods page.
Comes with brewer (top, bottom, filter cap), scoop, filters, paddle, funnel, and holder for filters.
AeroPress coffee tastes better because the ground coffee is totally immersed in the hot water, resulting in fast and extensive extraction of the flavour compounds.
The AeroPress method shortens brew time to 20 seconds or less, which avoids the unpleasant bitterness created by slower methods.
As well, the acid level of AeroPress brew is much less than conventional methods, due to the shorter brew time. In fact, laboratory testing measured AeroPress coffee as having under one fifth of the acid generated by regular drip coffee makers.
The end result? Coffee lovers are delighted by the fact that AeroPress brew is more friendly to their stomachs.
Using the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure brewing yields rich flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness.
Total immersion brewing results in uniform extraction of the ultimate in full coffee flavor. Other coffee makers drip hot water on a bed of grounds, over-extracting at the center and under-extracting at the edge.
Micro filtered for grit free coffee - unlike other press-type coffee makers.
One minute from start to enjoy. The actual press time takes only 20 seconds.
The AeroPress is made completely from translucent copolyester, and contains no BPA or pthlalates
