Best AeroPress Accessories for Brewing

Fellow Prismo

Fellow Prismo, Pressure-Actuated Attachment for AeroPress Coffee Maker with Reusable Filter, Espresso-Style, No-Drip Immersion, and Cold Brew at Home
Click image to see on Amazon

 

The Fellow Prismo is made by Fellow Industries. With the Prismo, you can make a full-immersion espresso-style brew without needing to use the inverted method.

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

Able DISK Fine + Standard Set: The Original Reusable Metal Filter for AeroPress Coffee Maker - USA-Made Stainless Steel
Click image to see on Amazon

 

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

  • portable,
  • durable,
  • fast,
  • lightweight, and
  • compact.

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.

2Pour

2POUR® The New Dual Press Accessory for The Aeropress® Coffee Maker, Delter Coffee Press or Pourover
Click image to see on Amazon

 

The 2Pour is an AeroPress accessory that saves you time by pressing your coffee into two cups at once.

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

The JavaJug (or JavaJug 2) is a stainless steel jug for pressing your AeroPress coffee into. It’s also great for storing your AeroPress.

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

Able TRAVEL CAP: Storage lid for Aeropress Coffee Maker - USA-Made

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.

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.

How To Travel With An AeroPress Like A Pro

If you’re getting ready for a trip but find yourself wondering how to travel with an AeroPress, you’re not alone.

One of the things that was immediately obvious when I first saw my friend’s AeroPress, was its portability. I could see the huge benefit in owning a coffee maker that you could bring with you pretty much anywhere.

My friend spoke about just that. He would bring it with him when he went camping, when he visited his parents, when he went to the office and when he went for cycling trips.

It was one of the things he loved the most about it, aside from making great coffee. Since owning my own, it’s also become one of the things that I love the most about it, too.

If you want to travel with an AeroPress, you could purchase an AeroPress travel kit or case, or the AeroPress Go which neatly packs away into a travel mug which you press your coffee into, or even the JavaJug.

There’s many options and there’s no right or wrong way of doing it. As with most things, it comes down to what your needs are.

Before you rush off to buy your travel setup, there’s a few factors to consider that will help determine which option will suit you best:

  • What items you need to bring
  • How much space you have
  • How much weight you can carry
  • How long your trip is

Let’s take a closer look at each of these factors.

How to Travel With an AeroPress – Factors You Should Consider

Useful items

Your travel situation will greatly impact what you need to bring with you. Here’s a list of items that may be useful for you when you travel with your AeroPress:

You’re not going to need all of these things every single time you travel with your AeroPress, but some of them will help you greatly.

If you’re just visiting your parents locally, for instance, the AeroPress, a suitable hand grinder and a travel cap for storing beans would be enough.

You could even make it simpler by grinding the beans before you go and bringing them in a herb pot. I’m sure you get the idea here.

One of the options for how to travel with an AeroPress, a container with some ground coffee inside with a plastic scoop.

Storage space

If you’re traveling in a way that restricts how much storage space you have, take a minute to think about what you really need to bring with you and why.

If you’re only going for a day or two, you might be better off bringing pre-ground coffee. If anything, you’ll appreciate your freshly ground coffee that much more when you return.

When storage is a real deal-breaker, you should seriously consider getting an AeroPress Go.

If you’ve already got an AeroPress, I don’t need to convince you about the benefits, such as it’s:

  • Compact,
  • Durable,
  • Fast,
  • Portable, and
  • Lightweight

Obviously, the AeroPress Go is all these things and more. It comes complete with its very own travel mug that you can press your coffee directly into, so that’s one less thing you need to bring.

Not only that, but it’s even more compact, as it can be packed away entirely into the travel mug, drastically decreasing the amount of storage space needed.

But if that doesn’t persuade you and you already own an AeroPress, you could instead look at the option of grabbing a JavaJug.

It’s a big coffee jug that you can press your AeroPress coffee into and also store your AeroPress inside of when you’re all done.

It’s not as compact as the AeroPress Go, but if you don’t need to be that compact, it’s a suitable option.

Another option is a travel kit. There’s plenty of kits available, each with a different style and size.

Think carefully about exactly how you plan to use it, making sure it can accommodate your AeroPress and other essentials.

Weight

Man sitting in an airport departure area with feet up resting on his luggage, looking out the window at a departing aeroplane.If you’re traveling internationally, the weight of individual items in your luggage can begin to really add up. The last thing you need is another heavy item to add to your list.

AeroPress to the rescue! As I stated earlier, being lightweight is one of the key benefits of the AeroPress. You should have no hesitation about bringing it with you overseas whatsoever.

You’ll want to use some sort of travel kit to avoid your coffee gear getting damaged or moving around in transit.

And if you’re going on more of a backpacking adventure, the AeroPress Go would be a clear winner here, taking up the least amount of space, but also providing a travel mug.

You should also have your own coffee hand grinder that compliments the AeroPress, as no pre-ground coffee will last a long trip. To find out which hand grinder is most suitable, see my recent article.

Length of trip

Every trip you take is different. Are you going for several days or longer? If so, will you need to bring a grinder that matches the benefits of the AeroPress?

If the freshness of ground coffee is less important to you, can you instead pre-grind your beans before you go and bring them in a compact storage container?

For some people, they can sacrifice their desire for freshly ground coffee in exchange for the extra space they will have. For others, it’s not an option.

If you really can’t go without freshly ground coffee, you can maximise the space you have by bringing a hand grinder that can fit inside your AeroPress.

You could also use a travel cap that seals over the end of the plunger tube to hold your coffee beans.

It won’t hold enough for a long trip, but it’s something. Perhaps it’s enough to keep you going until you can purchase some more coffee beans on your travels.

Conclusion

I hope you’ve got a clearer idea about what you may or may not need to bring with you when you travel and that I’ve provided some insight about how to travel with an AeroPress.
