The Invention of the Aeropress

Zachary Crockett, writing for Priceonomics:

“There’s really nothing bad to say about the device other than the fact that it’s a funny-looking plastic thingy. Then again, its inventor, Stanford professor Alan Adler, is a world renowned inventor of funny-looking plastic thingies”

Great article about the history and making of the Aeropress, one of my all-time favorite household gadgets and easily the best coffee maker I've ever owned.

(I also love how they refer to an Adam "lonelysandwich" Lisagor video simply as, "An AeroPress fan's artsy instructional video.")
