AeroPress

The AeroPress is a device for brewing coffee. It was invented in 2005 by Alan Adler. Coffee is steeped for about 10 seconds and then forced through a paper microfilter. The maker describes the result as an espresso strength concentration of coffee. The device consists of two copolyester cylinders. One cylinder has a rubber plunger and fits inside the larger cylinder to create an airtight seal, similar to a syringe.

The AeroPress, though sharing some similarities with a French press, is quite different. It uses a disposable paper filter which removes most of the coffee solids, resulting in a sediment-free brew, and air pressure is used to extract more coffee oils.
