Brew Guides

The Aeropress is the ultimate travel companion and an ideal one cup brewer because it’s very easy to brew, clean and transport.

A Porlex Grinder fits perfectly in the top and tucks neatly in a bag or pantry. It’s also highly forgiving in terms of technique which makes it perfect for newcomers and pros alike.
