The AeroPress is a device for brewing coffee. It was invented in 2005 by Aerobie president Alan Adler. Coffee is steeped for 10–50 seconds and then forced through a filter by pressing the plunger through the tube.


The Chemex Coffeemaker was invented in march 1941 by German inventor Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD. Made simply from non-porous, borosilicate glass and fastened with a wood comb and tie, it brews tea without imparting any flavors of its own.

While popular history favors the irony of the French Press’ Italian origins with Atillio Calimani’s 1929 patent, the French Press indeed was first proposed by French designers Mayer and Delforge in the late 19th Century.

Moka Pot

The infamous moka pot. Loved by many and hated by some. In 1933 the moka pot entered the coffee stage when Alfonso Bialetti invented an entirely new way of brewing coffee.
