STILL THE BETTER COFFEE PRESS: AeroPress® Coffee Maker Achieves Worldwide Success

The AeroPress coffee maker continues to delight coffee lovers in over 70 countries with the absolutely delicious coffee it brews as well as with its ease of use and cleanup. It quickly and easily produces up to three cups of flavorful American or espresso style coffee that is remarkably richer, smoother and lower in acidity than coffee brewed by conventional coffee makers. All it takes is coffee, hot water, and around a minute of time.

A recent testament to the enormous popularity of the AeroPress is the fan-created documentary AeroPress Movie. In this 45-minute film produced by European Coffee Trip, viewers get to know AeroPress inventor Alan Adler, the team behind the World AeroPress Championship, and many more people who are part of the AeroPress story. The world premiere was on October 18th 2018 at Kino Scala in Brno, Czech Republic and its film festival premiere was at the Internationales Filmwochenende Würzburg on January 27th 2019. View the documentary and find more screenings around the world on the movie's website at

A rapid, total immersion brewing process produces rich flavor without the bitterness and high acidity so common with other coffee presses. The AeroPress process yields coffee with only one fifth the acid level of ordinary drip brew and one ninth the acidity of French press brew.  So AeroPress brew is not just richer and smoother, it’s also friendlier to the stomach.

But the popularity of the AeroPress is mostly due to the fact that it can make delicious home-brewed coffee a reality for every coffee lover. It has a retail price of only $34.99 and its compactness, portability, and durability mean it’s a good fit in a kitchen, desk, suitcase or camping pack. The AeroPress gives busy people everything they need to brew superb coffee quickly and easily with a minimum of fuss. And clean up takes just a few seconds because the press is virtually self-cleaning.

The simple but adaptable AeroPress brewing process has inspired a slate of increasingly popular fan-driven championships worldwide. The most recent competition, the 11th annual World AeroPress Championship, took place in Sydney, Australia in November, 2018. During this two-day extravaganza of socializing and friendly but intense competition, national champions from 56 countries vied to impress the panel of expert judges with coffee brewed using an AeroPress and their favorite brewing recipe.

The AeroPress was invented by Alan Adler, who has some 40 patents to his name. A retired engineering lecturer at Stanford University, Alan's mission was to give home coffee brewers a way to make a truly delicious cup of coffee quickly and easily. Millions of coffee lovers around the world would agree that he succeeded.

The AeroPress is made in the U.S.A. by AeroPress, Inc., Adler’s family-owned business.  AeroPress is a registered trademark of AeroPress, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, U.S.A., 1-650-493-3050,
