AeroPress only sells paper filters because our taste surveys indicate coffee filtered through a paper filter tastes better. We also have learned by reading medical research reports that drinking coffee that is not filtered through a paper filter raises your bad cholesterol and we want to do the right thing for the health of our customers.
- previous post: Hi Alan. Been a huge fan of the aeropress. its my forth now. Got a question about the plunger seal. Half of my aeropress are pre 2018 (before silicone was used) and the other 2 are silicone based (I think as 1 is an aeropress go and the other has red lettering). Apart from being stickiness the thermoplaster elastomer can develop over time if the press is sitting idol, what drove you to change to silicone? was that only because of the stickiness or was there a difference in flavor of the brew. Thanks – From Daniel L.
- next post: Hi Alan, Love the aeropress and have been using for close to 5 years. Any tips on how to make a more acidic cup? Currently, I do 14 grams of coarse ground, with a very quick steep..say 45seconds-1minute (with the plunger on to keep the pressure) and then press as quick as possible. Thanks for the help! – From Collin W.
