Pro Makes great tasting coffee
Much like an espresso machine, the Aerobee Aeropress yields strong and flavorful coffee by forcing water through fine coffee grounds. It allows the water to absorb the flavor before the bitterness can be released.
Pro Great for taking on the road with you
The Aerobee Aeropress is made out of high quality polypropylene plastic which makes it durable. Unlike most coffee makers, the Aeropress can take a beating so you can toss it in your bag and and bring it anywhere you need it.
The Aeropress even has an included pouch where you can carry all the parts so you are ready to brew coffee anywhere you have hot water.
Pro Fast and easy to clean up
After a cup is brewed, the used grounds and filter paper form a dense puck-shaped mass that can be disposed of easily. Having a quick clean up time is very useful when you’re making coffee on the go.
Pro Can make a cup of coffee in under 1 minute
The Aerobie AeroPress can use a very quick brewing method thanks to its convenient design. You just have to fill up its tube, press down on the pump, and the coffee will be extracted using pressure.
Pro Many different ways to customize the brew to your liking
The Aeropress makes use of manually applied pressure to force-filter coffee grounds. During the process, the Aeropress allows you to tweak the pressure, water temperature, ground size, pouring rate and timing which results in a very customized flavor. This feature inspired coffee-making competitions such as the Aeropress Cup to make the best cup of coffee using only the Aerobie Areopress.
Con Requires you to buy filters separately
It requires the use of disposable filters to make a cup of coffee. It's quite affordable though, because 700 paper filters only cost around $10. As such, it will hardly drain your savings but if you want a reusable metal filter to reduce your waste and expenses, third party manufacturers can provide them at around $10 each.
