From Invention of the AeroPress, the story of inventor Alan Adler:
Among coffee aficionados, the AeroPress is a revelation. A small, $30 plastic device that resembles a plunger makes what many consider to be the best cup of coffee in the world. Proponents of the device claim that drinks made with the AeroPress are more delicious than those made with thousand-dollar machines. Perhaps best of all, the AeroPress seems to magically clean itself during the extraction process.
It definitely makes a good cup of coffee and is also super portable. I bought an extra one to leave at my parents place. That way I can avoid the high-test freeze-dried drip coffee that my dad tends to make.
