Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker
Advantages: Quick, small and easy to clean!
Disadvantages: I'm now drinking far too much coffee!!
As I have mentioned before in one of my reviews, we recently had a family holiday. Well with my eldest son usually having the latest or unusual gadgets around, I was looking forward to seeing what he had discovered now. So as we unpacked he asked me if I would like a cup of coffee. As I explained that I hadn't unpacked my jar of instant yet, he asked why was I drinking that when he knew I loved my "Proper" coffee. He had brought me a coffee grinder a few years back, but at the moment I didn't have a decent coffee maker and didn't fancy having a bulky new one sitting on the breakfast bar.
So out he popped his new gadget which I had never seen before nor knew that it existed. This was the Areobie Aeropress Coffee Maker. This consists of two tubes made from plastic in a smokey colour. Start by putting in a couple of spoons of your favourite filter coffee ( I used to buy mine from Starbucks,but have found that some of the supermarkets have a great range to choose from now) into the tube put a filter in and sit the Areobie Areopress on top of your mug. Fill with hot water and wait for 1 minute, then press and plunge the top part right down and there you have your perfect mug of coffee.
Aeropress say that this has " a unique vacuum filter system so that only water and air come in contact with the coffee preserving it's taste". It does make a lovely cup of coffee so whether that is why I really don't know!
Now apart from the coffee tasting great the best bit is still to come, this is so easy to clean. Just take the cap of the tube ( or chamber as Areobie discribe it), push the plunger and take it to the bin and one hard bang and the whole lot falls out ( coffee and filter that is!). Now just a quick rinse under the taps and it is ready for your next cuppa. So much easier that some of the other coffee makers on the market.
What really impressed me with this was that it takes up hardly any space in your kitchen and as I seem to slowly be getting more and more cooking appliances, this was what I was looking for. I'm the only one in our house that drinks coffee in the morning, so this is perfect for me. Not so good if there are more people wanting coffee, but having said that it is so easy to clean that one quick rinse and it is ready in seconds. There were several of us using it on holiday and it didn't create any problems at all when it came to wanting a coffee.
I have since purchased one of these and think that at the price of £25.36 including 350 filters this is a great price. If you pay £26.99 you get the same as above plus an extra 350 filters, which is great value as the filters to buy on there own are £3.50 which still isn't bad. So it is worth paying the bit extra to get the filters which should last some time. The price does vary on Amazon so it is worth watching this as I've seen it as low as £22 recently!
Summary: If you like your coffee, then grab one for the office or home!!
