Rank #1: Episode 36 - The AeroPress

Podcast cover
Read more

Please consider donating to support Neptune Coffee in Seattle after a tragic natural gas explosion destroyed their shop on Wednesday morning, March 9th. Proceeds are being collected on GoFundMe

On this episode we're talking all about the AeroPress - a brew method created by Alan Adler, president of Aerobie, in 2005. Though brewing with the AeroPress can be quite simple, there are many features that make it a prime candidate for experimentation. Listen along as we discuss the fundamentals of brewing on the AeroPress, what's great (and maybe not so great) about it, and some fun ways to tinker with it at home.
