Aeropress Inventor Brews a Faster Cup of Good Coffee
We've been a pretty big fan of the Aerobie Aeropress (you can read our full review here) and it looks like the inventive single serve coffee maker is finally starting to get the attention it deserves.
Sixty-seven-year-old Alan Adler of Los Altos admits he wasn't much of a coffee lover. In fact, more times than not, it just upset his stomach. But that didn't dissuade this electronics engineer, who rocketed to success for his line of wildly popular boomerang-type toys, from doing what comes naturally -- tinkering.

Adler, a Stanford University lecturer and inventor of the Aerobie flying ring, has created a simple, efficient and compact $30 coffee maker that doesn't have to be plugged in. This new invention, his first food-related product, brews what he swears is the best cup of java you've ever had.

The San Jose Mercury article had an astonishing impact on AeroPress awareness in the San Francisco Bay Area. Within a few hours all our local retailers were sold out and on the phone begging for more. Folks in our office threw cartons in their cars and were zooming to deliver. We delivered 48 to Cook's Junction in Los Altos and they sold out in about four hours. We got them another 80 the next morning (today) and by 3:00PM they called in need of more. I delivered another 80 myself and during the few minutes I was unloading my car they sold two more!
Whew. It's exciting.
