 Meet Trestle, the new coffee capsule adapter for the Aeropress coffee brewer. 

A first of its kind device, Trestle fuses the usability of K-cup coffee capsules with the simple and portable Aeropress Coffee Brewer. Our goal is to facilitate convenience and reliability with a low packing footprint, perfect for coffee brewing on the go—wherever you are. 

We set out to create a product that could make hot beverages anywhere you are. 

Trestle bridges the gap between the Aeropress coffee maker and the popular K-cup capsule system, focused on ease of use and convenience for busy beverage lovers. With Trestle you’ve got one device capable of making a wide range of beverages, from various coffee roasts to hot cocoa, teas and ciders. If it fits in a K-cup, it works great with Trestle! 

 Trestle’s innovative use of the standard one way brew valve allows for the user to have full saturation of the K-cup before brewing begins - which creates a better tasting cup of coffee. 

Simply attach Trestle to the top of your Aeropress, insert a K-cup of your choice, then add hot water and brew. The process is easy, clean, repeatable, and effortlessly convenient—a true adaptation of the versatile and beloved Aeropress brewing device.

Risks and challenges

Development of Trestle is already on schedule. As with any small scale manufacturing there can be delays or risks all along the chain. From tooling issues, to missed delivery dates, however Caffewerks has been designing and creating products for over a decade and we have a strong manufacturing team as well as the support and communication needed to launch this product to our backers in our outlined time frame.
We have spent the last year preparing for the launch of Trestle and we are both confident of, and committed to, delivering a quality product on time.
