Aeropress and Pour Over methods of making coffee have been gaining quite a bit of traction as they’re both affordable methods of making good coffee. But which is easier, quicker, and, most importantly, makes the best cup of coffee?
- It takes a minute from the moment your water starts boiling to make a cup of Aeropress.
- Can be used in the traditional method or the inverted method to make something more similar to a french press.
- The traditional method creates an interesting and light cup of coffee, with a significant amount of oils removed. The inverted method allows for the creation of a more dense brew similar to that of French press and is particularly good for dark roast coffee.
Pour Over Method
- It takes between 2 and a half and three minutes to brew a dark roast. That number jumps to three or four minutes when making a dark roast.
- Pour over coffee is absolutely incredible, but the process of making it isn’t as much versatile as it is customizable. Making a cup of pour-over gives you total control over the coffee making process.
- The pour-over method’s control allows the flavors from the beans to really shine with this method. Coffee purists will really appreciate this method, and it may be the ideal one for those who enjoy a simple and well-done cup of coffee.
If you’re looking to brew convenient, affordable and delicious coffee, the Aeropress and the pour over are both a good choice.
The Aeropress wins in a few areas: versatility allowing for anything from a quick cup of coffee to a strong cappuccino, an easier cleanup , and the fact that you can make a great cup of coffee in seconds or when traveling, whilst, the pour-over method is still incredibly affordable and a staple of any coffee aficionado’s kitchen, especially when time affords a cup of coffee worth savoring.
