As you read each of the pros and cons above you probably thought: “Oh, so the French Press is better”.
And then with the next point: “Oh wait, so the Aeropress is better”.
The truth is that both options make great coffee and there’s a time and a place for each one.
The French Press is visually appealing, easy to use and makes great coffee for a couple of people but it takes time.
The Aeropress makes great coffee quickly but it takes some practice, it’s not the prettiest and only really practical for one or two cups.
If you’re trying to decide which one to get then have a look at the differences to see if there are any deal breakers.
If the French Press vs Aeropress choice has left you feeling a little indecisive then we’ve got something in common. I couldn’t choose one over the other either.
My advice is to get one of each. Problem solved!
