Best way to brew coffee: AeroPress or French press?
Which one brews the best cup of coffee? It's a question that has plagued coffee fanatics since the AeroPress launched in 2005. They both offer some pros and cons, and it can be a toss-up for folks who just need a single cup of coffee. One thing is for sure: There's never been a better time to brew at home! ☕
The AeroPress was invented in 2005 by Alan Adler, the same guy who also invented Frisbees. Folks love the AeroPress since it's cheap, super easy to clean, and offers versatility in brewing styles. Because the AeroPress uses air pressure to brew coffee, the end result is a cup of java with more pronounced flavor profiles and higher concentrations of caffeine. And because the brewing time is so quick, you can easily make another cup for a guest.
The modern French press is an oldie, but a goodie. Invented by Italian designer Attilio Calimani in 1929, it has long been the preferred brewing method of choice for sophisticated coffee drinkers. Not only does it brew a smooth, incredibly bold cup of coffee, the device can also be used to brew loose leaf tea and cold brew. Modern tweaks have made it just as portable as the AeroPress, and easier to clean. It's an elegant device for the enlightened coffee consumer, and you deserve nothing less.
