Grizzly Bear Coffee is a small coffee roaster in Guelph, roasting coffee in small batches using fair trade, organic green beans from around the world using sustainable energy.

My aim is have a coffee resource in Guelph that is personal, friendly and as fresh as can be.

The Invention of the AeroPress

Did you know that the same guy who invented the Areobie frisbee is the brain behind the Aeropress?  Me neither!

Here is a great article from priceonomics about the inventor and his inventions.

The AeroPress was conceived at Alan Adler’s dinner table. The company was having a team meal, when the wife of Aerobie’s sales manager posed a question: “What do you guys do when you just want one cup of coffee?”

A long-time coffee enthusiast and self-proclaimed “one cup kinda guy,” Adler had wondered this many times himself. He’d grown increasingly frustrated with his coffee maker, which yielded 6-8 cups per brew. In typical Adler fashion, he didn’t let the problem bother him long: he set out to invent a better way to brew single cup of coffee.

I do not own an Aeropress myself but after reading this article I will definitely be picking one up.
