Will Show You How He Brought The AeroPress Coffee Maker To Market

Alan Adler is coming back to Inventors Alliance to talk about his AeroPress coffee maker, which is now the highest-rated coffee maker on Amazon.

Alan is famous for his Aerobie frisbee device that revolutionized the way we look at flying disks. 

The AeroPress is a device for brewing coffee. It was invented in 2005 by Aerobie president Alan Adler. Coffee is steeped for about 10 seconds and then forced through a paper microfilter. The result is an espresso strength concentration of coffee. Fast and convenient the AeroPress makes one of the best cups of coffee you will ever taste. Its innovative system uses the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure brewing to produce coffee and espresso that has rich flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness.

Alan will share his experiences and advice on the following topics:

  • How he got the Aeropress to be the highest-rated coffee maker on Amazon
  • How to successfully market and publicize a product
