The aeropress is one of our favourite brewers. Nic Rapp used it to win the 2014 New Zealand Brewers Cup. It is a total immersion brewer for uniformity of extraction, similar to a plunger, but unlike the plunger the Aeropress has a paper microfilter so you get a clean grit-free coffee.
Different to most other immersion brewers, the Aeropress is also a pressurised brewer: you use your arms to force the water through the coffee grounds resulting in an even extraction with a full body.
The Aeropress is also perfect to take traveling because of its compact size and durability; it's super fast to brew with too! Only two minutes from start to finish.
