In this post, I’m going to cover some of the 12 best AeroPress accessories to help you get the most out of your AeroPress.
There’s some pretty handy add-ons and accessories for the AeroPress. These can not only make your life easier, but can also help to produce some different styles of coffee.
Each accessory helps you achieve AeroPress greatness in a different way. helping with things such as:
- The brewing process
- Travelling with an AeroPress
- Storing your AeroPress
- Preparing your coffee for use with the AeroPress
You may find that some of them will even benefit you in more than one category, such as travelling and storage.
I should mention that these are all 3rd party accessories. They’re not made or endorsed by Aerobie, the makers of the AeroPress.

Best AeroPress Accessories for Brewing
It replaces the standard filter cap that comes with the AeroPress with a cap that has a pressure-actuated valve.
This stops the flow of coffee from the AeroPress until you apply pressure, giving you greater control. It also comes with a 150 micron reusable metal filter.
Because it creates an air-tight seal, you can also use it to make AeroPress cold brew overnight.
It also creates mind-blowing crema (if you use the right secret method). Learn more about that here.
If you ever wanted to be able to make quick cold brew with your AeroPress, meet the PuckPuck.
The PuckPuck is a puck sized AeroPress cold brew attachment that sits on top of your AeroPress chamber. It drips ice-cold water into your AeroPress from an attached water vessel.
It enables the AeroPress to produce Kyoto style slow-drip cold brew coffee in about 2.5 – 3 hours time. That’s quick!
You can buy it with or without the PuckPuck water vessel, as it has the capability of using a compatible water bottle instead. See their website for a list of compatible bottles.
Aesir Paper Filters
Huh? Doesn’t the AeroPress come with its own paper filters? Yes, but Aesir paper filters are different.
The Aesir Paper Filters are premium filters made from high quality paper. They are twice as thick as the standard AeroPress paper filters.
Having smaller pores means that you transfer more vibrance, clarity and juiciness to your cup. They also reduce the sediment.
They’re low absorbent, so you won’t lose any of the natural coffee oils, either.
There must be a reason why several World AeroPress Champions use these paper filters.
Able Disk Filter
If you want the option of a reusable metal filter instead of paper filters, you should check out the Able Disk Filter. There’s two different types of Able Disk Filters available.
The standard stainless steel filter produces a fuller-bodied cup. This is because some of the coffee fines are able to pass into your cup when you press.
The fine filter option allows less coffee fines to enter your cup. So, it produces a lighter, cleaner cup of coffee.
Be aware that the fine filter is thinner than the standard filter, so it’s possible to bend if you apply too much pressure.
They’re made 100% in the USA and used by AeroPress professionals. Able also sponsored the World AeroPress Championships in 2019.
Porlex Mini Coffee Grinder
The Porlex Mini Coffee Grinder is a ceramic burr hand grinder that compliments the features of the AeroPress well. It’s
- lightweight, and
If you travel with your AeroPress and need a coffee grinder that can travel with you, definitely consider the Porlex Mini.
It’s perfect for travelling with the AeroPress, as due to its small size, it can fit inside the AeroPress itself.
Not only that, it also produces a good grind and is made in Japan.
This means you don’t need to:
- switch cups half-way,
- press it all into one large cup or jug and then transfer it to your drinking cups, or
- make two separate brews all together.
The concept is easy enough. Place two coffee cups under the 2Pour spouts, place your AeroPress on top of the 2Pour and then press.
Make sure you have some smaller coffee cups than a standard mug in the house, as the 2Pour isn’t that tall.
Best AeroPress Accessories for Traveling
JavaJug / JavaJug 2
You may find that when travelling it can be difficult to find a cup that your AeroPress can fit.
It’s wide enough to fit the AeroPress cap so you can press your coffee without spilling a drop. If you’re making many cups, you can serve from the JavaJug.
You can also follow the markings on the inside that show how much hot water to add before serving.
It comes with a JavaJacket that wraps around the JavaJug to insulate it and keep it either cool or hot. The JavaJacket is available in six different colours.
When you’re all done making coffee, remove the filter cap and place it in the JavaJug. Then, put in your AeroPress upside down.
Push the AeroPress plunger all the way through the chamber, so it doesn’t compress the plunger gasket. If left compressed, your AeroPress gasket can wear out faster.
Able travel cap
Planning to bring some coffee beans with you to grind fresh while you travel? Unless you’ve got loads of storage, you’ll enjoy using the Able Travel Cap.
It’s a cap that fits on the open end of the AeroPress plunger. This lets you use the empty space inside the plunger as a storage compartment.
This is perfect for storing some coffee beans or even some filter papers. Although it doesn’t hold heaps of beans, it may be enough until you can buy some more while you travel.
It also provides better stability for the AeroPress when you’re brewing using the inverted method. Finally, it’s made in the USA.
Eagle Creek Pack It Tube Cube
When you travel, having a travel case makes sure that all your parts and pieces stay together.
This avoids anything getting damaged in your luggage. It also helps you locate your parts and pieces much faster.
The Eagle Creek Pack It Tube Cube is a travel case that will fit everything you need to keep you brewing fresh coffee.
The zip is accessible on both ends, meaning easy access to either side of the case.
It’s also backed by a lifetime “no matter what” warranty! That’s pretty amazing.
Ondamota Herb Container
You can use the Ondamota Herb Container to store your ground coffee. It makes a perfect little accessory for travelling with your AeroPress.
It’s 2.1 inches high, 1 inch wide, so small enough to fit in your pocket. It’s made from lightweight, durable aluminium and comes in a variety of colors.
When sealed, it’s air-tight and locks in the freshness and aroma of your ground coffee.
Best AeroPress Accessories for Storage
It looks great wherever you are and has space for all your AeroPress parts, including:
- the chamber,
- the plunger,
- the scoop,
- the stirring paddle,
- the funnel, and
- the filter papers (with holder)
You can also store your coffee mugs on top of it, with the top shelf including a heat-proof silicone rubber drip mat.
You should also be happy to hear that it’s made from 100% recyclable bamboo, so environmentally friendly, too.
If you have even less space and need something more compact, Hexnub also offer a compact version of the Hexnub Organizer.
Blue Horse Caddy
It holds your AeroPress and all the parts with a place for everything. It even allows you to have somewhere to dry your AeroPress after use.
The Blue Horse Caddy:
- is made from stainless steel,
- is durable, and
- has non-slip rubber feet, which keep the caddy secure and also protect whatever surface you use it on.
If that wasn’t enough, it’s also made in the USA, so expect good quality.
