Coffee - considered by many the quintessential caffeine delivery system in the world. Those luscious little beans have been cultivated on every continent except Antarctica. However, many people don't like coffee due to some of the bitter compounds present in the brew. Compounds such as chlorogenic acids, trigonelline, furfuryl alcohol, and even caffeine itself lend bitter flavors to a pot of fresh coffee. Fans of the drink have been trying for centuries to find the best way to extract all the flavor and aroma from coffee, while extracting only a balanced amount of bitterness.
Aerobie, created a way to brew a single cup of the most flavorful and yet least bitter coffee you've ever tasted. Coffee snobs around the world have enjoyed the Aeropress coffee maker, and have compared the brew it makes to brews made with expensive commercial coffee machines!
Using the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure brewing yields rich flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness.
Total immersion brewing results in uniform extraction of the ultimate in full coffee flavor. Other coffee makers drip hot water on bed of grounds, over extracting at the center and under extracting at the edge.
