AeroPress is a registered Trademark of AeroPress Inc.
The AeroPress was created by Stanford University engineering instructor, Alan Adler.
The inception of AeroPress can be put down to one specific conversation, between Adler and the wife of his company sales manager. They were griping about the fact that when you tried to make a single cup of coffee in a drip machine, it came out watery. From then on Adler’s mission was set. Since it’s official release in 2005, the AeroPress remains one of Adler’s most famous to date.
The AeroPress Coffee machine has become more widely known in the last few years, thanks in part to the company divesting some of it's none coffee related business and focusing on this product.
One of the great features of the AeroPress Coffee machine is that it is light, compact and portable, and it makes a great cup of coffee in about 30 seconds. It is also a much less expensive way to make a coffee than some of the high end machines, but those machines tend to offer greater choice of coffee drinks.
On the other hand it can be a little fiddly, and there are a lot of parts included.
