Fast and easy: The AeroPress Go brews hot coffee in about 1 minute or cold brew coffee in around 2 minutes.
Compact, lightweight, and durable: Ingeniously engineered to ensure that everything fits inside the mug.
The AeroPress Go Coffee Maker Compared to Other Methods
Automatic drip coffee makers:
Most automatic drip machines produce uneven extraction from the bed of coffee grounds: over extracting where the hot water lands at the center of the bed and under extracting at the edges*. The AeroPress totally immerses the coffee grounds in hot water, resulting in even extraction for rich, full flavor.
Pourover brewers depend on meticulous pouring and timing to produce a good-tasting cup. The AeroPress’s full immersion method means that a quick ten-second stir leads to great extraction for full flavored coffee.
Home espresso machines:
Home espresso machines only brew espresso. The AeroPress can produce regular American style coffee or an espresso style concentrate which can be used like espresso in espresso based drinks such as lattes and cappuccinos.
French presses use coarsely ground coffee because of the size of the holes in their filters. The coarsely ground coffee particles have less surface area than finely ground coffee. The lower surface area necessitates a long steeping time to extract full coffee flavor. Unfortunately, this results in bitterness and acidity in the cup. The AeroPress uses espresso or fine-drip grind coffee with a big surface area to quickly extract rich, full flavor without bitterness.
