I don't personally have one, but if you do let's discuss pros and cons.

The device was manufactured by Aerobie, weirdly enough they usually make plastic discs. This company didn't really show passion on coffee. Worse i heard people say it can't give you crema on your espresso.

But people did say it isnt so sensitive to grind size, the filter helps stop grits from ending up in your cup of java, but does it really work that way.

So what's the verdict.

Tell me anything you know,

I went outside one windy day and threw my aeropress in the direction of the wind and it went a great distance.  That was a good.  A neighbors dog picked it up and ran away with it, a definite bad.

Alan, the inventor of not only the Aerobie flying disc but also the Aeropress, is very passionate about coffee.
No, in my opinion, it is not an espresso maker really, but it is an excellent coffee maker.

View it as an "Espresso strength" maker. I do.

I consider the resulting brew to be unique.  I have noticed brighter tastes with it.  Overall I think it creates a brew in a class of its own.

I hear it produces a similar strength to moka pot, which sounds great to me. Its also easy and quick to make. Im still debating on buying one, however, my pour over is my current favourite.

Hey TCP…

For my wife & I (& friends who drop by for coffee) best single cup maker around. We have 2 on the counter and they go in the RV when we travel (or the coffee box when we travel by SUV)

We have given a dozen or more away as gifts as well.

Never believed they were espresso makers, or even anything more than a great single cup maker.

French Press without the mess…
