Anyone here use one?
Yup. It's not my go-to method, but I use mine a few times a month depending on what I feel like that day.
You do espresso, or plain coffee?just want to know if i will use enough to justify the cost. Thanks
I use one every day for coffee. Easy, no machines to clean, makes great coffee.
I use it mostly to make strong coffees and espressos, but it's very easy to make regular coffee or just add water after you press it. I would definitely recommend it if you don't plan to just use it for Maxwell House or something. My favorite is either Valhalla Java or Murdered Out, with a touch of heavy cream after pressed.
I find a Moka pot from Bialetti to be superior to everything. I use it on the stove at home, on a fire in the woods, on an iron in a hotel, or pretty much anywhere else.
my favorite coffee is also Murdered Out. I am on the subscription club.
3 cup or 6 cup? Thanks,Expat!
I don’t know. No markings on this thing.
Looks like 3 cups
Maybe. It’s one cup for me, but I know that European cups aren’t the same as men’s sizes.
The wife uses the aero press daily.
Benefit/taste of a french press, but filters two diterpene compounds (cafestol and kahweol) that stimulate LDL (bad) cholesterol that a french press does not.
I use mine at least once a week. Makes ok coffee. Not bad at all, but not earth moving great.
Our Bunn died after 11 years of use, and we've been using the Aeropress with an electric kettle every morning we're at home. It really does a great job of enhancing the flavor of the coffee versus some other methods. I usually brew with the Aeropress using the inverted method. There's a whole science to these things, and some people get super specific about weight of the grounds vs. the water and the time. I usually just drop in a scoop, pour to the top, flip it over a mug, let it sit a few minutes, and then press.
