The AeroPress Original coffee maker is loved by fans around the world, our patented technology produces the richest, smoothest coffee, cold brew, and espresso drinks you’ve ever tasted. Designed in Silicon Valley, Made in USA.

No acidity, bitterness, or grit: Rapid brewing eliminates bitterness and acidity while micro-filters remove the grit typically found in other presses. Goodbye French press! 

Brew in under one minute: Just add coffee and water, stir, and press. Clean-up takes only a few seconds. 

Brew American or espresso style coffee: Brews one to three delicious cups with one press. AeroPress Original can also make cold brew coffee as well as espresso-style coffee for lattes, cappuccinos, and more.

AeroPress Original Chamber & Plunger: For brewing the most delicious coffee ever!

Micro-Filters: Includes 350 replacement AeroPress micro-filters. Micro-filters remove grit from your coffee, unlike other press-type coffee makers. 

Filter Holder, & Filter Cap:  The filter holder stores filters neatly on your counter and keeps them easily accessible.

Funnel: Make it easy to transfer ground coffee from your grinder to the AeroPress Original chamber.

Stirrer: Designed to be the perfect length for the AeroPress Original.

Scoop: Measures just the right amount of coffee for delicious, easy AeroPress Original recipes.

Tote bag: included if option selected.

We offer free shipping on Coffee Makers  within the contiguous USA. We charge our actual shipping costs or less on all other orders. If you're shopping from outside the US, please find a local retailer to save on shipping.

Care: To maximize seal life, always eject the used coffee right after brewing and store your AeroPress coffee maker with the seal pushed all the way through the chamber. This keeps the seal free of compression for longer seal life. There is no adhesive on the seal, so you can easily remove it and then replace it on the AeroPress plunger. You can purchase replacement seals from here

Cleaning: For day to day use, a simple rinse is sufficient because the plunger wipes the chamber clean as you brew. However, you can wash AeroPress coffee makers in the dishwasher (top rack only). We recommend occasionally removing the seal from the end of the plunger for a good washing inside and out with warm water and dish soap. If your chamber ever gets sticky, wash it with vinegar.

AeroPress brand products are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for one year from the date of purchase from an authorized retailer. If you think you purchased a defective AeroPress product that is under warranty, please contact us and report the problem. We will promptly be in touch.

How it Works

Brewing Basics

If you’re new to brewing, keep these tips in mind to make your perfect cup:

 Press gently 

Pressing too fast or with too much force compacts the coffee grounds, making it harder to press into your mug.

 Grind size

Use a medium-fine grind size. If you use too coarse a grind size, you may see a dripthrough rate that is up to 2x faster. If you use a fine grind size, you may find it more difficult to press. The average bag of preground store-bought coffee is a medium grind size that is optimized for drip coffee makers.

 Trust your taste 

Rather than focusing on brewing in the “right” way, prioritize finding a method that makes coffee you love. If it tastes good, you’re doing it right!

Make the perfect cup, every time

The AeroPress Original sets a new standard for coffee lovers, who can make incredible tasting coffee and espresso at home. Immersion brewing technology extracts the most flavor and a paper micro-filter ensures no grit.

The result: clean, bright, smooth coffee.

so smooth

I really am enjoying my AeroPress and the delicous coffee it produces. So smooth!! The one thing I'm struggling with and I'm playing with it, is getting the correct amount of coffee to use. It's almost too smooth that I don't have enough 'bite' — so I'm playing around with different brands and amounts to use.

AeroPress

Thank you for your review - we are so glad you are enjoying your AeroPress coffee maker! For more "bite", you could try using a hotter water temperature, or extending the "wet time" (time during which the coffee grounds are steeping in the water). We hope that this helps - happy brewing! Best wishes, Constance, AeroPress, Inc.

It is the best cup of coffee I've ever made!

I read several long articles about making a great cup of coffee without having to buy an expensive coffee maker. The AeroPress came up not only as a good cup of coffee but a great cup of coffee. One article said it is a 10/10! High praise I thought! Then I wondered it must be super expensive and difficult to operate. Neither was (or is!) true. I recommend you buy one and see if you agree!

Great, but difficult to use at higher altitudes

Bought this as something light I could bring along when I travel. I live in Denver, so I have challenges getting a consistent cup at home. These problems get harder when I travel to higher elevations, but when I travel to sea level, the aeropress is a delight to use. To anyone else struggling at higher elevation, you may need to grind your beans finer, brew for longer, or agitate the coffee more while it's brewing (pick the mug and aeropress up together and give them a light swirl). Also consider waiting longer before you press the plunger down. These all have helped me start dialing in the process. Good luck!

Now my go-to coffee maker

I’ve been drinking coffee for 60 of my 77 years. These days it’s 2 mugs of Kicking Horse decaf—strong and black—every morning. Aeropress delivers the very best coffee of any maker I’ve used. Strong and grounds-free—but never bitter. And fast!! I also use it for dinner guests, using 30g of coffee and diluting it to 2 cups. I can make 4-6 cups faster than a drip maker can. It’s the best!
