Aeropress

AN INTRODUCTION

The AeroPress was invented by Aerobie president Alan Adler in 2005.  Coffee is steeped in water for a few seconds and then forced through a filter by pressing the plunger through the tube.  The press has a shorter brewing time, which leads to less acidic coffee and uses air pressure to extract flavour.
