Product FAQs:
Q. How is the AeroPress® Coffee and Espresso Maker different from a French press coffee maker?

A. While both presses involve manually pressing the coffee through a filter to remove the coffee grounds, there are many ways the presses are different.

1. The AeroPress uses a small paper filter while a French press uses a metal filter. Because of this difference in filters, the AeroPress can use finely ground coffee, while you must use coarsely ground coffee in a French press. Finely ground coffee has much more surface area than coarsely ground coffee so the brew time with an AeroPress is only about 30 seconds while the brew time with a French press is four to five minutes. Rapid brew time yields rich, smooth tasting coffee without bitterness. The long brew time required for the French press causes over-extraction on the surface of the coffee grounds which produces rich but bitter tasting coffee. 

2. The longer brew time required for a French press brews coffee much higher in acidity.

3. Even if you use coarsely ground coffee, the metal filter of a French press passes some of the coffee grounds into the coffee, resulting in some "grit" in the bottom of your cup. Most people consider this grit unpleasant when they drink down to the bottom of the cup. These “grit” coffee grounds continue brewing in the cup, which further increases the bitterness. The AeroPress produces a grit-free cup of coffee.

4. The AeroPress can be used to make conventional American-style coffee or shots of espresso-style coffee, which means you can make lattes, cappuccinos, and many other espresso-based drinks. A French press can only make American-style coffee.

5. Paper filters used in many types of coffee makers including the AeroPress remove chemicals called diterpines from coffee. Medical research has shown that the diterpines in coffee are potent agents for raising your low density lipoproteins (also called LDL or bad cholesterol). The metal filter in a French press does not remove these diterpines and therefore its use may increase the bad cholesterol of its user.


Q. Does the cup in the photo with the AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker come with it?

A. No, the cup is not included.

AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker << Prev page


You will have the best coffee and espresso in town if you own an AeroPress®. My expensive cappuccino maker is going on CraigsList now that I've got this coffee and espresso maker. My friends know what a coffee snob I am, but I'm here to tell you -- drinking coffee made with this press is a spiritual experience.

It makes the smoothest, richest brews I've ever had in my life, and it's now difficult for me to drink anything else!

Although it is a press, it works very differently from a French Press. For one thing, French presses cannot make espressos or lattes. Just put a scoopful of your favorite coffee in the bottom, pour hot water in the top, and press the plunger. Within seconds, you've got a perfect cup of coffee or espresso, and it literally only takes seconds to clean (just pop the grounds and filter into the trash, and rinse the plunger).

Each AeroPress® comes with 350 filters and you can make 1-4 cups of coffee or espresso with each ''batch.'' Cappuccinos are my drink of choice, so I bought an inexpensive battery-powered milk frother that makes wonderful foam for my drinks. I now reside in perfect coffee heaven, and because the AeroPress® is so portable, I even travel with it.
