Aeropress – portable brewing !


This nifty piece of equipment is one of our best travel companions.  Joe, one of our more intrepid crew, regularly takes his Aeropress on his trips and hikes. Joe will honestly say it was one the easiest products to put together and use – never be without fresh espresso ever again!!

The AeroPress makes delicious full flavoured coffee using a rapid, total immersion brewing process that produces one to three cups per pressing in about a minute – with no grit in your cup. Useful for brewing espresso-style coffee for use in lattes, flat whites and other espresso-based drinks.
