It can be brewed with any type of kettle, perhaps a pot, or even a hot water spout at a gas station or convenience store.
What makes the AeroPress so unique and great apart from its ingenious design and compact size, is it creates a cup that is part percolation, part immersion, and part pressurized filter brew with no bypass or gimmicks resulting in a good, clean cup offering outstanding clarity and texture with ease. This technique is designed to be simple and efficient.
I like to use the included AeroPress coffee scoop. Yes I know, GASP volumetric measurement may be astounding to some but this technique is about ease and utilizing the tools provided not technical precision (though they both have their merits). I have found the AeroPress coffee scoop to yield ~17 g of speciality, light to medium roast coffee. Maybe less for darker roasts. If using a darker roast try grinding a bit coarser say medium fine or dropping the water temp.
