Aeropress championships?  

Eh I should not make fun of this considering some folks may take it very seriously.

Yes they do actually- they travel from all over the world for it. Hosted by Stumptown this year- had to be some pretty good coffee there!

Rick Said:

I've had my Aeropress for several years - probably 7 or 8 -  - and I use it for BBQs, camping, picnics, and while traveling.

The original box it came in is getting pretty ratty-looking. I've seen Aeropress tote bags advertised. Has anyone used one of these tote bags? Are they the right size? Well made? Worth getting?

Thanks!

Hey Java Man, long time no see! Still enjoying the Wega very much five years later :) Learned a lot since way back then. Added an Erics grouphead thermometer in March, really helped me get a handle on this dragon.

Hope you're doing well,

Ron

I understand your frustration, and no I don't recommend the tote bag. I didn't like it because it meant you have yet another piece to keep track of. I want less clutter in my life, not more. Recently, I created a solution that I'm going to try to produce through Kickstarter. Check out the video below and let me know if you like it!

If this is something you're interested in, please send me a message and I'll let you know when the campaign is up and running so you can get in at the early-bird special!

Could you explain exactly what you mean? Do you take the seal off of the plunger and put a weight on it or do you balance an 8lb weight on the end of the plunger?

Posted June 5, 2014 link

I keep the seal on the plunger and balance the lead weight on it.  It keeps the seal flattened out instead of shrinking up and not working.

Slickfast - I love the solution you've come up with.  It's a very elegant design, and it looks to be quite lightweight as well.  I don't move my Aeropress enough to justify buying one, but I wish you good luck!

Wow, thank you so much for the kind words! Quite alright alright about not personally needing one, I know this won't be for everyone. In fact, the whole point of the Kickstarter is to see if there is enough interest to actually warrant getting this thing mass produced! Thank you again, and if you think you know anyone else who might be interested please direct them to me!

I'm also working on a hand grinder adapter, so you can grind directly into the press. Maybe more people will like that!

Slickfast,
I tried to find you on kickstarter, but couldn't.

I did find another interesting Aeropress accessory.
The Spressa:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spressa/spressa-enhance-your-aeropress-experience?ref=discovery

I'm not sure it's something I'd use, since the Aeropress is mostly a travel brewer for me. I do like it though, & I'm tempted to pledge & buy one anyway.

Jamie,

Thanks for looking! I don't actually have the prototype finished yet, so I haven't started the campaign. I want the design to be absolutely perfect before I go and ask for people's money. I you'd like I can shoot you a message when it's up though!

I hadn't seen that Spressa thing. I agree with you, since I'm always taking my aeropress different places, but it looks well made and I love the look of the scoop!

Thanks for the URL.  I signed up for the $39 device.  It should be a fun device to use with the Aeropress.

AND ...  it's made here in Seattle!

That's a great photo, Riocruzer!

I like the idea behind these kickstarter Aeropress kits, but I'm not going to be really interested in one unless it comes with an 8 pound lead weight.
