Reviews of the AeroPress® coffee maker by coffee experts

“When used properly, AeroPress produces a remarkably good straight espresso-style coffee and an excellent American-style taller cup.  In fact, it produces a better espresso-style coffee than many home machines that cost twenty or thirty times as much.”

“I also have to add my enthusiastic recommendation to that of so many others about the brewer.  The quality of the coffee it yields has to be tasted to be believed.  I own every brewing device known to man and my plunger pot, Technivorm drip brewer and two vacuum pots have done nothing but gather dust since the AeroPress made its way into our house.”  Kevin Knox, 28 year specialty coffee industry veteran and author, Coffee Basics

“After two days of use, I am convinced that the AeroPress is the best thing to come along in a long time.  Thank you for one awesome product!”  Colin Newell, Editor/Creator,

“Thus, the result with hardly any tinkering: Two very, very good mugs of coffee.  I was able to taste qualities that I had mainly read about before, particularly on the floral, fruity, and sweet end of the spectrum.  You’ve obviously made a fine discovery.”

“Thank you for leaving us an AeroPress.  I’m sipping a delicious Americano as I go through my emails – you have saved me from servitude to the office brew cup and I will be forever grateful!  The funny thing is, I made it with the same pre-ground coffee the drip stuff is made of (just to do a more direct comparison) and, well, there is no comparison – one has flavor, the other has bitterness.”  Molly Watson, Sunset Magazine
