This is such an impressive brewer! This press brews very quickly using a steep time of just 30 seconds. Properly brewing a great cup of coffee is easy and clean up is surprisingly fast. Most importantly, the resulting cup of coffee is bright, clean, crisp and flavorful. The Aeropress has earned our highest recommendation as a fast, single-cup brewer for the home and a portable brewer for trips and camping. It makes a great alternative to pod brewing.
