First let me say that if you ever want to read or download the instructions for an AeroPress coffee maker you can do so on our website, aeropress.com. Your boyfriend is using his AeroPress as a pour over brewer, depending on gravity to push the hot water through the coffee grounds. A pour over brewer makes good coffee but an AeroPress makes even better coffee because the pressure accelerates the brewing process shortens the wet time, yielding a smoother brew. It was my desire to try shorter wet time that led me to try air pressure. When I first tasted the result I was amazed and delighted by how smooth it tasted. It was the smoothest brew I had ever tried.

- next post: I love my AeroPress! I have been using it for the past 2+ years and find it makes the best cup of coffee, hands down. However I increasingly have become concerned with my exposure to environmental toxins, plastics in this case specifically. I would the Aeropress company to weigh in on the issue. Bisphenol A found in plastics is an environmental toxin and like all things in small minute amount they may not be overly concerning, but with daily – often twice daily – use of plastic that is exposed to boiling hot water, this may be concerning. Have there been any studies done on this with the product? Do you know anything as it relates to the Aeropress? I look forward to hearing back from you. – From Sofia W.
