A few friends have this coffee maker and the coffee is really tasty and takes 30 seconds to brew (after boiling the kettle), faster than the Italian style stove top coffee makers. So much better than filter coffee.

Here are the blurbs:

Now you can enjoy real fresh coffee in the same time it takes to make instant coffee!

The AeroPress takes just one minute to make smooth perfect coffee every time

Actual press time is just 20 seconds

Simple and quick to clean; there's no washing-up of fiddly parts

The AeroPress is everything you need to make professional coffee at home

Note: you'll need fil;ters as well (£4 for 350) but they can be re-used up to 5-6 times or you can get a stainless mesh filter

Fantastic bit of kit, makes great coffee. Heat added.

I'd still recommend a 3 minute brew time though.

2p more sold by Amazon. Has been cheaper than this price recently.

I love using my cafitierre but washing process is really off putting.

Is this as quick as claimed?

Super quick. If you like coffee you should try this. I'm about to order my second one for home.

Great simple little gadget. Use mine every day for the past 3 or 4 years a must for coffee lovers.

Quite intrigued but - does this only make very small expresso-type quantities of coffee at a time? (The photo shows it sitting on a shot glass). I need something that produces a decent sized cup of coffee...

The main cylinder has enough volume to fill about 2/3 of a standard mug which you then top up. Typically one scoop of coffee equates to one espresso shot and you can vary how much water you put into the cylinder.

I have two. One at home the other at work. Better than the coffee they provide us with. Cheaper than spending £3 per cup at the coffee shops. Its a calming ritual in the morning for me also.

The one with the bag is only 2 pounds more if looking for somewhere to store it

its quick but you need to dry off the pieces if you want to store it immediately. otherwise leave it out to air dry. it ejects the coffee as a compressed puck.

this plus a hario ceramic grinder

I'm curious to try one of these. But at the same time i get good results from a low tech plastic filter and freshly ground coffee beans. I think the secret is not too piddle around with measuring the coffee - just use a lot.

Does this taste any better than a cafetiere or is it just preference?

Sorry I also don't understand how it brews the coffee quicker (less than 1 min compared to 4 mins) as I like mine strong.

Thanks.

Bought one of these a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love it. So quick and simple, and makes excellent coffee. Not as bitter as from a cafetiere and washing up takes seconds

I've had one for a couple of years now and highly recommend it. Not sure it's a "great' deal compared to normal, but good way to let people know I have a ceramic grinder so use coffee beans, but you can just buy filter coffee if you want (assuming the grind isn't too fine).

With regards to washing it, I tend to just rinse it all off with hot water (a bit of scrubbing might be needed on the end), and then a proper clean in the dishwasher / sink maybe after 3 or 4 uses. It's not hard to clean and all the bits are easy to get to.

Quicker and cleaner. Check out youtube.

Grinder takes for ever to grid, would recommend attaching an electric screwdriver to the spindle.

Can anyone please recommend good replacement filters?

Yes, literally pop the coffee puck into the bin and rinse it under the tap. That's all I've ever done with mine

I've had one for around 4 years (along with a lot of other coffee gadgets). It makes a decent cup of coffee and cleanup is easy but I don't use it much now, I prefer to use a small french press at work and cheap espresso machine, V60 or Vacuum pot at home. It's advertised as making espresso but the resulting coffee is nothing like espresso in my opinion, more like filter

I have had mine since 2010. It's not going to beat a proper coffee, and the inventors claim it produces espresso amounts hence the numbers on the side - it doesn't and the inversion method is needed to get good strength. To be honest I prefer my zyliss cafetière hot mug for ease of use and strength these days. Still have the aeropress in the cupboard but never use it. Metal filter also does away with papers and let's more oils through.

Have you ever bought an espresso on a cafe? Then noticed how quickly they make it and how strong it is? The aeropress works on the same principle. Want it don't think it give s you is a big mug full - which is what i like.

Bialetti thing is the best

Love mine - nice coffee, easy to use and easy clean up...

Couldn't get to grips with it at first with bland tasteless coffee, but then saw the inversion technique on one of the many aeropress websites and have been delighted with the results...

Good ground coffee also helps though!!!

I too bought the metal filter as you get more of the oils out - not sure about the whole 'use a paper filter several times' idea, once you take it apart to clean the filter will need throwing out I reckon in order to wash it off (bits of coffee obviously around the plunger etc).

Interesting how the description says contents are 1 coffee machine, yet the photo clearly shows a pack of filters included (I got 400 with mine a few years back) - I wonder if you do actually still get these, I'd have thought so.

One word, pressure. The coffee is under huge pressure as it is forced through, just like in expensive machines.

I leave for a few minutes. I also use the "upside down" method (check the aeropress world championship web site, yes, they really have one)

Sit here drinking my coffee from this device. I highly recommend the inversion method thou' I'm sure there are guides online, but simply put.. Put plunger in cylinder, turn upside down, put in coffee, put in hot water. Put the filter disc into the other bit, now, what i general do here is wet the disc a little before attaching it to the cylinder then pushing the cylinder down very slightly. Let it brew, when ready, flip the whole device (hold the cylinder carefully and plunger) over a cup and then slowly depress. Top up with hot water in cup afterwards.
Also it's much eaiser to pop the disc out and split the plunger/cylinder immediatly after making the coffee than doing it later (after it's cooled). Enjoy

For a decent shot of coffee you should really leave it to brew for 3 mins (the inverted brew method is best for this) and the water should be just under boiling. The resulting coffee is *much* better than a cafetiere because the brew time is fixed and the pressure you excerpt is the equivalent to the pressure an espresso machine gives when it forces the water through the coffee grains. With a cafetiere the coffee grains sit in the water for longer stewing away so you get a much harsher flavour.

These are great, no bitter taste I use less coffee grounds per brew. I normally let it brew for a good few mins.

always warm milk first if you don't have it black

which ground coffees do people recommend for this?

Best I've tried is Sainsbury's Taste the Difference in a blue packet, unfortunately it's decaff!

Bought the £20.40 one direct from amazon - £19.38 with Amazon Student.

Thanks for posting.
I thought about buying one of these yesterday after being recommended one by a coffee shop.
The coffee they made with it was pleasant, but light . It allowed you to taste the fruity notes of the coffee.

I prefer coffee made with the Moka, but I've ordered one of these anyway for fun.

I've started roasting coffee at home simply with a heat gun in the back garden. I'm amazed how even the roast is, and After 4 days of resting the beans smell awesome.

I'll give the aeropress a try!

Me too, it's so easy and cheap and the results are great - energiser heat gun from screwfix £9.99 and dog bowl from Wilko's £2.80

​The reason this takes less time is because you are forcing the water out (by pressing the plunger down) which results in the flavour being extracted from the coffee faster. the device itself is like an injection (air tight) so does require a but of force to push down which in turn helps with the flavour.

Would love to hear what coffee people use and can you get it online

I need to replace mine after several years use. I've been doing it inverted because it makes it stronger.

The edges you push down snapped off mine.

Rave coffee, signature blend for me at the moment.
