AERO

PRESS

A space-age contraption with gravity-defying aspirations, Aerobie is responsible for creating the long-flying “superdisc” that broke Guiness World Records when it soared 1,333 feet into the air. The same mastery of aerodynamics comes into play here, with this peculiar and lovely device for brewing coffee.

PLACE AND RINSE FILTER

Insert a paper filter into the AeroPress's detachable plastic cap. Use some of your hot water to wet your filter and cap. The water serves a dual function here : It helps the filter adhere to the cap, and heats your brewing vessel. Hold the cap by its “ears” and pour the water very slowly so it can be absorbed by the filter.
