As you all know by now I love experimenting with coffee and the toys that make it. When I first started I bought a french press and loved it then soon after that I heard that the moka pot made even better coffee (sort of espresso). I loved my moka pot so much that I never used the french press again and started to find American coffee so watery and kind of dirt tasting. I was really happy with my moka until I heard from a blog friend about the aeropress.
I had really never heard anything about the aeropress and was curious because it looked pretty insane. I went ahead and bought one because I was pretty intrigued by it. One thing I really never liked about the moka post was that you’re actually drinking the oils which are very bad since it does not have any filter however the aeropress does. I could use the exact amount of water and coffee in each one and they taste completely different. It is kind of hard to explain but the aeropress cup just taste so clean and not bitter what so ever.
To use the aeropress you just boil some hot water, add your ground coffee into the tube, add the water, stir and allow to sit for a minute then you just press the tube down over your cup and that is it. I hate making it in front of my husband because he always laughs at me with all my ‘tools’ as I am pushing and frothing (my milk). I have even saw online that several cafes are adding this to the store so that people can make their own cup. Maybe we should set some up in our cafe? If you’re looking for a great coffee maker then this is what you want.
