This posting is part of our series on manual brewing methods and equipment. Here is our take on the:
If you’re like me, what you drink changes dramatically with the weather outside. This manual espresso maker is capable of producing a great shot. Served over ice in the summer it can make a mean Americano and in the cooler months it holds its own for single shots, doppios or espresso based drinks. For Lattes and Cappuccinos you would need to have a milk frothier or steamer.
- Characteristics of the shot are a bit cleaner than a traditional espresso. I would attribute this to the paper filter absorbing a bit of the oils.
- Cleanup is super easy with the paper filter. The AeroPress produces a compact puck that can be ejected right into a trash can.
- In terms of the quality of the brewed coffee this is one of the highest value brew methods on the market today.
