Alan Adler, a renowned inventor and retired Stanford University engineering instructor, started the foundation for what is now known as AeroPress back in 1984. It wasn’t until 2004 that Alan began studying coffee brewing processes and coffee maker designs, and at a coffee industry trade show in 2005, the AeroPress was born. Since then, hikers, bikers, and other folks on the go have turned to AeroPress for a simple yet superior brew. And the company’s latest product is quite an exciting one.
The AeroPress Go, as AeroPress puts it, is designed “to provide all the delicious brewing capabilities of the original AeroPress plus a convenient drinking mug that doubles as a carrying case. Like the original AeroPress, the AeroPress Go brews remarkably delicious American, espresso, and cold brew style coffee.”
What we like about the new design is that everything you need for a fresh cup of coffee fits neatly inside the plunger, so whether you’re bringing along some pre-ground beans or grinding them out on the trail, you know you’ll have everything you need. The new model weighs just 11.4 oz. (323 g) including the 20 paper filters that fit in the holder. The mug will hold 15 oz. (444 ml) of liquid and the entire kit is manufactured in the United States.
The AeroPress Go is available for preorder now at $31.95 USD, with an expected delivery by the end of October. It will include the mug with lid, 350 micro-filters in a storage carton, filter cap, filter holder, stirrer, and scoop. Head over to AeroPress.com for all the details.
