The AeroPress coffee maker presents an interesting and exciting twist on traditional coffee making devices. No electricity, no noise – just a simple, controlled process that allows you to produce beautiful, smooth coffee without the usual bitterness.
If you already own an AeroPress coffee maker, you will understand the simplicity of this device. Alternatively, if you are looking for a new product to elevate your love for coffee to new heights, the AeroPress is a suitable choice. You can also look at other manual coffee makers in our in-depth guide.
Whilst the AeroPress is a fantastic device on its own, you can improve its functionality with a range of amazing AeroPress accessories. From travel caps and elegant storage units to pouring attachments and filters – the list goes on.
If you take your coffee seriously, we have compiled a detailed list of AeroPress accessories you cannot live without:
Fellow Prismo – Pressure attachment for Espresso-style coffee
If you love the intense, but creamy taste of an espresso, consider using the Fellow Prismo pressure attachment. This AeroPress accessory is of great quality and screws tightly onto the bottom of your AeroPress coffee maker.
The pressure-actuated valve enables pressure to build-up to produce espresso coffee. Due to the quality of the no-drip seal and attachment, a fully immersive brew is possible. The device is simple to use and can be cleaned quickly.
In addition to these features, the valve has a small aperture; this means it can be used to create espresso in an accompanying shot glass. Whilst the AeroPress can be used to create espresso coffee, the Fellow Prismo attachment allows you to take this process to the next level.
