AeroPress Coffee Maker


At most beach vacation rentals or other lodging including our own Manzanita Rentals, you'll find a coffee maker included.  


Nevertheless, my husband Eric still swears the AeroPress is the best coffee maker. Ever. He always takes his on vacation. Especially to our beach houses. The perfect way to savor a cup of good coffee is while taking a morning walk on Manzanita Beach.


The AeroPress was created by local Aerobie (see below) founder and Stanford engineer Alan Adler. A wide range of coffee aficionados, from amateurs to professionals all praise the smooth, rich flavor of coffee made with the AeroPress. The very big plus is this little beauty gives you the ability to control the strength of the coffee any way you like it, just about anywhere you want to make it.


The AeroPress runs around $29.00, plus you'll need filters or a reusable screen, but Eric will guarantee it's worth it.


Ha - just kidding! But give it a try and see what you think.
