Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker Product Review
The Aeropress coffee and espresso maker is a handy single serve coffee press that is easy to use and fast to clean up. As an AirBnB host, and avid coffee drinker myself, the Aeropress has been a focal point of my coffee and tea setup. Here’s my detailed product review!
Providing coffee for your AirBnB guests is as essential as providing a clean bathroom and a comfortable mattress to sleep on. After a restful sleep, travelers often enjoy a cup of coffee to start their day off right. By using a quality coffee maker, your AirBnB guests will have an excellent cup of joe to wake up to!
Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker
Simplicity – 4 Stars
The Aeropress is a simple machine to use, but when looked at by a first time user, the procedure may not be obvious. After one go around with this single serve coffee press, you will have the system down. As a host, I like the simplicity of the Aeropress and many of my AirBnB guests are already familiar with it. That being said, a simple instruction sheet will alleviate any confusion and have your guests caffeinated in no time!
Speed – 5 Stars
The slowest part of the Aeropress coffee making process is heating water. Once you have the water heated, simply pouring it over the coffee grounds in the press, giving the coffee a stir, and then pressing the plunger down is all that’s needed for an excellent coffee or espresso. This is the speediest cup of coffee I’ve ever made!
Taste – 5 stars
Admittedly, I am not the snobbiest of coffee drinkers, but I know what I like. The Aeropress gives you the ability to let your coffee brew longer or shorter depending on your taste. You won’t get that level of customization from a standard coffee maker!
Clean Up – 4.5 Stars
The Aeropress is extremely easy to clean up. Simply disassemble the few pieces, dump out the used coffee grounds, and rinse under the sink. Set it out to dry and you’re all done!
The Aeropress is an inexpensive piece of equipment! It’s simple design and robust construction mean it will last forever (or it certainly appears so!). The circular paper filters come in inexpensive bulk packages. I have opted to use a reusable metal mesh filter. It has held up strong to hundreds of cups of coffee with no signs of stopping!
Overall rating – 4.5 Stars
The single serve Aeropress coffee and espresso maker is a tremendous addition to your coffee and tea offering for your AirBnB guests. It’s inexpensive, long lasting, easy to use and clean up, and most importantly, makes a terrific cup of coffee!
