Coffee Brewing Guide: AeroPress

A very unique coffee brewing method. The AeroPress uses total immersion and gentle pressure to produce coffee with a smaller volume and extraordinarily rich flavor with lower acidity and less bitterness. Brick & Mortar Coffee suggests using micro-filters to produce a clean, particle-free brew.
