Spending the last few weeks with my parents has reintroduced me to some of their daily routines… such as my father’s coffee brewing. My father is snobby about his coffee (just like I am with granola, grocery stores, gym clothes, and many many other things). He now swears by the AeroPress, which he likes even more than the French press. And after comparing them all, I totally agree… I am now a converted AeroPress user! Using an AeroPress is a fast, easy and convenient way to brew excellent coffee. For whatever reason, the pressure heightens the sweetness and body in each cup. It tastes like a barista made it themselves.
The AeroPress’s gentle pressure produces coffee with a rich, full taste. No bitterness, not too light… just perfect (because of the lower temperature and short brew time, the acid level of the brew is much lower than conventional brewers). So if you are a coffee snob like me or my dad, check out aeropress! Less than 30 dollars total (cheapest coffee maker out there!) or get it as a gift for a coffee-loving friend. Have a great week!
