Any muscle-head can make decent espresso with this simple device. Just add grounds and hot water to the chamber and wait 10 seconds. Then insert the plunger and push down for delightfully strong go-juice in a little more than half a minute. While the result isn’t on a par with Café Snootycups, it beats the sludge served by many chains, with no bitterness or grounds in the mix. Among the products we tested, the AeroPress is also the easiest to clean: Spent bean-matter ejects smoothly from the end; give it a single wipe and you’re done.
