How to create a great coffee experience at home? Personally, I prefer a method that involves manual intervention, rather than fully automatic. The Aeropress is becoming a favoured instrument of choice when it comes to coffee perfection and single cup brewing. It’s become a significant part of the Melbourne coffee scene in recent times and is popular among coffee purists. It looks like a plunger but operates more like an espresso machine. We note the rise of the Aeropress.
