An airport brewer refers to a two-component system used in brewing coffee. The first component is the coffee brewer that, in most cases, utilizes the drip percolation technique to extract the coffee from the coffee grounds. The second component is the airport. The airport is placed at the base of the coffee brewer when brewing coffee and is then removed when serving.

Percolation refers to the passing of a solvent through a permeable medium with the aim of extracting soluble compounds in the medium. In the context of coffee brewing, the solvent is hot water while the permeable medium is the coffee grounds. The soluble compounds refer to the chemicals in coffee that give it its flavor, aroma, color, and stimulating effects.

In order to produce the hot water, the brewer must be connected to a water supply. The quality of the water does affect the quality of coffee being produced. This means if the water supply in an area is hard, the water line to the brewer must be fitted with an odor and taste filter. The odor and taste filter is made of activated charcoal that filters out calcium salts that cause water hardness. A sediment filter is also necessary, regardless of whether the water is hard or soft. This filter will prevent any particulate matter present in the water from passing to the brewer.

To heat the water, the brewer is fitted with a water heater. The heaters are designed to be compatible with the 240 volts mains supply. The rating on the heater ranges from 1600 to 3500 watts. The rating will depend of the capacity of the brewer. The brewer is also fitted with a thermostat that helps to regulate the temperature of the water.

A microprocessor circuit installed in the brewer controls both the thermostat and heater. The user inputs the desired temperature and brewing duration via an easy to use control panel. Instructions of how to operate the brewer are provided in a user manual at the point of sale.

The airport is simply a container that holds the coffee. It might also hold the filter containing the coffee grounds, depending on the maker of the airport brewer. This container can be made of glass with an external stainless steel covering. It can also be made completely of glass with a plastic handle.

Grindmaster lever-action pump airports have a capacity of up to 2.5 liters. The lever action pump eliminates the need to flip the port in order to get to coffee at the bottom. It has an insulated glass liner with an attractive stainless steel finish.

The airports are fitted with a brew through a stem with a lever that allows fast dispensing of the coffee. The airport can be used with most commercial airport coffee brewers. The airports are designed to keep coffee hot and fresh with minimal loss in flavor. They are mounted on a 360-degree swivel base that reduces the loss of heat from the bottom through conduction.
