AeroPress by Aerobie




Hi Neighbors!

Here is a really neat little kitchen gadget.  It is an Aerobie AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker.  It is really easy to use.  The AeroPress comes with everything you need, other than your coffee, hot water and whatever you add to your coffee.


Here is all the equipment.


We added the coffee.

First you place your filter in the little cap and then screw it on to the AeroPress Tube.  Set this on a sturdy coffee mug.  Next add 2 scoops of  fresh, finely ground drip coffee to the tube.  Add HOT water to the number 2 on the tube and use the provided stirrer to mix the hot water and coffee.  Next, get the end of the plunger wet and insert it 1/4 of an inch into the tube.  Slowly, very slowly, start pressing down on the plunger.  You can hear the coffee slowly dripping into the cup.  Continue slowly pressing down until the plunger rests on the coffee grounds.  Remove the AeroPress from the Coffee Mug and then add either hot water or hot milk.  Add creamer and sugar to your taste.  To clean up, remove the cap and continue pressing the plunger until the "puck" of used grounds fall out.  This is best done over the trash or compost bin.  Rinse or brush away any ground from the seal.  The seal should have already cleaned your chamber.  Always eject the "puck" and clean right away.  Remove plunger or store completely pushed through the chamber to keep your seal working properly. This comes with a filter holder and 350 filters.

Add the hot water. Then stir.

Insert press.
We made my husband the first cup and he really liked it.  I know we will be using this quite a bit.  The Aeropress will make 1-4 cups of coffee or espresso at a time.  Would one of my neighbors like one of these?  Visit the Aerobie site for more information and to find where you can purchase an AeroPress.  Suggested Retail is $29.99.
Slow and steady!
Dispose of "puck".

It looks and smells great!  Just add more hot water or hot milk.
Here is just a little information from the Aerobie site:
Using the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure brewing yields rich flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness. Total immersion brewing results in uniform extraction of the ultimate in full coffee flavor. Other coffee makers drip hot water on bed of grounds, over extracting at the center and under extracting at the edge. Micro filtered for grit free coffee – unlike other press-type coffee makers. One minute from start to enjoy. The actual press time takes only 20 seconds.


One neighbor will receive an Aerobie AeroPress for themselves.

I like a rich, dark espresso most of the time. When I go to Starbucks I order 6 shots with a pump of white chocolate mocha over ice in a Venti cup :)

I prefer black coffee only slightly sweetened, but when I occasionally drink flavored coffees, I like Vanilla (not french vanilla) the best.

I prefer black coffee. Every once in a while I like some caramel flavoring, though!

Strong, bold coffees are my favorites--with lots of creamer or sweetened condensed milk.
