Aeropress Coffee Press
« on: November 10, 2008, 11:07:09 PM »

Anyone ever tried one of these?  It's supposed to make a killer cup of coffee.  Part french press, part drip, made by the Aerobee flying disc folks.

I decided to pick one up today and had to go to four stores before I found one because they were sold out.  Everyone I talked to raved about the coffee this thing produces.

Interesting. I haven't seen one of those. I use a french press and it's >>> drip.

I'll be waiting for a review.   Smiley

Noticed no difference.

After two tries in this thing is proving trickier than I expected.  I thought it would be easy straight out of the box.

The first time I tried it, I accidentally used two filters that were stuck together.  I totally botched the pressing down and did it too quickly.  Turned out really weak.

2nd cup was stronger, but not as strong as I'd like.  I might be diluting it too much or need a finer grind.  Will report after tomorrow's attempt.

I'm hoping I can get the right technique down.  I like being able to make a single cup in a minute vs. using the honking coffee maker we have.  And cleanup is super quick.

This is probably the best explanation:



http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/kitchen/8e3a/
    * Place a filter on the bottom of the Aeropress
    * Place the Aeropress on top of your favorite coffee mug
    * Put a measured scoop of coffee into the brewing chamber
    * Pour hot water into the brewing chamber
    * Using the included stirrer, mix the coffee and water
    * Wait twenty seconds, and place the plunger on top of the brewing chamber
    * Push down gently on the plunger
    * When the plunger reaches the bottom, pop out the puck of coffee grounds into the garbage
    * Enjoy your perfect cup of coffee!
