The AeroPress was invented in 2005 by toys designer Alan Adler.
Award-winning AeroPress proponent Jeff Verellen, together with Adler, endorse the use of brew water at approximately 80°C, far lower than is normally used in filter coffee, particularly when a coffee is darker roasted.
Many baristas, including Verellen, endorse the use of bypass when preparing AeroPress. In other words, they dilute the brew by adding hot water to their finished brews after pressing.
Using two AeroPress filters helps to slightly reduce the turbidity of an AeroPress.
Scientist Nasko Panov demonstrated the importance of screwing the cap onto an AeroPress firmly to avoid unwanted turbidity.
