A portable, simple and rugged coffee maker for travelling cyclists out on the road.
An AeroPress coffee is the perfect wake up call and, alongside your preferred breakfast, the best way to fuel a morning’s touring. Simple and quick to use, you can have a delicious smooth, rich coffee and have washed it up after before you can even say “espresso”…
The AeroPress is lightweight and rugged – ideal for packing into your panniers.
There are a couple of methods of making an Aeropress coffee – a traditional method (outlined in the instructions) and an inverted method. As the images from Burbage Edge show, we prefer the inverted method which involves brewing the coffee with main cylinder upside down and the plunger inserted, before adding the filter and cap, rotating, and plunging. Choose for yourself…!

Aerobie was founded in 1984 by Alan Adler to manufacture and market his high performance sport toys. The company was an instant success when his first product, the Aerobie flying ring, broke the Guinness World Record for the longest throw. Since that time, Aerobie has many other innovative, outdoor activity toys.
A few years ago, Alan Adler became frustrated with the poor quality of the coffee brewed by most home brewing systems. Ever the scientist, Alan set out to study the important variables in the brewing process and their effect on the taste of coffee. He was heavily guided in his research by numerous tasting sessions with both professional coffee tasters (cuppers) and average coffee drinkers. Alan went through many designs before he settled on the AeroPress. The AeroPress optimises the brewing variables to yield an amazingly smooth, rich coffee with less than 1/5th the acidity of drip brewed coffee and therefore none of the bitterness and none of the particulate common with other press type coffee makers.
