Isn’t it fantastic that the AeroPress is so unique it has become its own brewing device category! The device was introduced on CoffeeGeek’s forums way back in 2005, with its inventor constantly answering questions about it from the get go. The most popular alternate brewing method for the AeroPress – the inverted brewing method – was developed on this website’s forums as well.

Since then, the device has become a world wide phenomenon. There’s even an AeroPress world championship, where new and different ways to use the brewer are explored and celebrated.

It really is a simple device: a tube, a plunger, a filter and a filter holder. Put the tube, with filter and filter holder assembled on your coffee cup, add ground coffee, quickly add hot water, stir, and add the plunger to the tube. Wait 30 seconds or so, then plunge down on the liquid, forcing the brewed coffee through the filter into your cup.

Of course, there’s a lot more ways to brew with the AeroPress. There’s an iced AeroPress How To on this website, as one example. I’m surprised CoffeeGeek doesn’t have a definitive how-to for the brewer (ed.note: it’s coming!), but I’ve always liked Stumptown’s video on the process.
