KAHA Coffee Roasters is proud to announce the arrival of the Aeropress® Coffee Maker to our lineup of products available for purchase!
Since its debut in 2005, the Aeropress has gained a cult like following in the coffee industry for its unique method of combining aspects of pressure brewing, full emersion brewing, and paper filter brew methods.
The Aeropress is adored in the coffee industry for its extreme versatility and relatively low learning curve. The Aeropress was developed to produce a rich, non-bitter cup of coffee, and can be used with a relatively fine grind and short brew time for fast extraction, and can also be used with a relatively coarse grind and a longer brew time similar to a full emersion brew method. The Aeropress is one of our favorites because we've found that we can get subtle notes from coffees which are not otherwise achievable in other home brewing methods.
Below is an instructional video as well as step by step instructions with graphics to help you get started brewing with the Aeropress®. We will be making our own brewing videos soon.
