I was never a fan of coffee. I’ve honestly never enjoyed the taste. However, in the last few months I can’t function without my caffeine in the morning. In the space of a few short months I’ve become a coffee connoisseur. I’ve been trying out a host of plungers and different blends. It has been an absolute blast.

I decided to try out the Aeropress coffee maker because it just seemed to be far easier to set up, use and clean than some of my plunger counterparts. It opens up like a little bit of a space age device, but putting it all together is really easy. When you open the box you are overwhelmed by a stack of things. But when you put them altogether you have a rad coffee maker that fits on top of your cup and works easily. I also love how clean it stays. You simply push the plunger down, open the coffee maker over the bin and toss the filter paper. Simple!

You can make a usual cup of coffee or you can make an espresso. I loved that you can play around with the ground coffee you add to determine the best flavour for you (my morning black has far more of a kick than my lazy Sunday cuppa.)

You can also pop everything in the dishwasher which makes me rather happy inside. My only grip is that the filter paper will eventually run out and it might be a bit of a bitch to find replacements. Spending all that time without coffee? Not cool.

So rad:

  • Easy to use. Not messy.

Makes us sad:

  • The filter paper
