A durable and compact coffee maker well-suited for travel. It's capable of quickly making tasty coffee and is easy to clean, but you'll have to get a reusable metal filter to make it more convenient.
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.
Pro Very portable so it's great for a giftee who likes to travel
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.
Con Requires you to buy filters separately
It requires the use of disposable filters to make a cup of coffee, so you'll have to add them to the gift or expect the giftee to buy their own.
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 the waste and expenses, third party manufacturers can provide them at around $10 each.
