About AeroPress

A one-of-a-kind coffee press, loved around the world

Our story

AeroPress Inc. was founded in 1984 by inventor and retired Stanford University engineering instructor Alan Adler. Under his direction, the company has built a reputation for manufacturing revolutionary sports equipment, including the Aerobie Pro flying ring, which set a Guinness World Record for longest throw.

In 2004, Alan began studying the brewing process and machine designs with a simple goal in mind: brew a superior cup of coffee. The AeroPress debuted to critical acclaim in 2005, and is now available to coffee lovers in over 80 countries.

The AeroPress today

The AeroPress debuted in 2005 as a near-perfect product. Since then, we’ve tweaked it only slightly, using even better materials and adding the AeroPress Go to our product line. The biggest change has been the incredible rise in how many people use it religiously.
