Though many attempts have been made at revolutionizing coffee brewing methods, none have seemed to have as big an impact on our current coffee culture as the Aeropress. Invented in 2005 by Alan Adler, the Aeropress has gone on to have enough appeal among baristas and home brewers to have a World Championship competition in its honor.
Attendees will witness and taste Aeropress brews of traditional recipes as well as a number of variations on other recipes. Time will be allowed at the end of class for folks to try out the brewers as well as have individual questions answered for current Aeropress owners.
If you are a coffee nerd or are trying to be one, this is for you. The Aeropress is the most hackable coffee brewer and the one I would personally recommend for people tiptoeing to the edge of the specialty coffee cliff. Also, the inventor, Alan Adler is the cutest old man ever.
