AEROPRESS

AeroPress, as a combination of immersion and drip coffee, is great if you love a sweet cup full of “low notes”—rich chocolate and nuttiness—with a heavier body than filter coffee, while still maintaining a cleaner cup with less grit than the French press.

Portable, lightweight and versatile, AeroPress is a fast brew method and is compact and made of medical-grade BPA-free plastic, so it’s great when traveling or otherwise on the go. This is a favorite brew method for those who love to experiment with recipes.
