From their website:
The AEROPRESS™ is an entirely new way to make coffee.
• Water and grounds are mixed together for ten seconds.
• Then gentle air pressure pushes the mix through a micro-filter in 20 seconds.
• The total brewing time of only 30 seconds results in exceptionally smooth flavor.
• Tasters ranging from professional cuppers and author Kenneth Davids, to coffee aficionados all praise the smooth, rich flavor.
