The AeroPress is the invention of Alan Adler, a renowned inventor and retired Stanford University engineering instructor who invented many cool products including the Aerobie Pro flying ring, which set a Guinness World Record for the longest throw.
In 2004 Alan began studying the coffee brewing process and analyzing coffee maker designs in order to create a truly innovative device that would brew a superior cup of coffee. At a coffee industry trade show in November, 2005, Aerobie debuted its breakthrough AeroPress coffee maker.
The AeroPress works through similar principals to a hand espresso maker. The brewing extraction is created through lower water temperature and high pressure.
