All my coffee-loving friends pack an AeroPress when they hit the road; it is, they assure me, the only way to be sure of getting a decent cup of coffee. Most of them love this little gadget so much they also use it to make coffee at home, one cup at a time.
The coffee maker, which combines the technology of a French Press and a pour-over, was invented by Alan Adler, who also invented the Aerobie Pro flyer (a kind of frisbee with a hole in the middle that’s set records for farthest-thrown object). He’s a mechanical engineer who lectures at Stanford and has spoken at universities all over the world.
Apparently, Mr. Adler loves coffee. Should you have someone with a similar passion on your list, this would be a terrific present. It costs less than $30 – and even comes with its own little travel bag.
