The materials we use in the manufacture of AeroPress coffee makers do not contain Bisphenol A but to generally answer your question AeroPress is very careful to only use materials in the manufacture of AeroPress coffee makers that are approved by the United States FDA, the EU, and other government agencies that oversee food preparation safety.
- previous post: My boyfriend has been using Aeropress for years, but he doesn't always use the plunger; sometimes he just lets the coffee sit and drip through on its own, which takes a long time. Is the press part only for speeding up the process, or does it actually change the flavor of the coffee (or add more or less acidity or something?) I used to know where the original instructions were and thought it did say what the purpose of the press is, but I can't find the paperwork. Could you please settle this question so we can stop arguing and get back to enjoying coffee? Thanks so much! – From Lisa H.
- next post: I am another vote in favor of a reusable filter, taste tests notwithstanding. (Also, my cholesterol is great, so that is not a factor for me.) I love the idea of the aeropress, but I won't buy a coffee maker that requires consumable filters. I think there would be good demand for a reusable filter. If you charge a decent amount for it, and include the caveats that you are concerned about, I've no doubt that you'd get more sales. Then if people didn't like the taste, they could eat their words and buy paper. In fact, I might even buy a set of paper filters — I just don't want to be dependent on them. Wouldn't that be a win-win? Thanks for your work! – From Kimi I.
