Hello again, fellow coffee nerds!

So I have been at it again, developing this idea further in my spare time, and i came to a fork in the road with the design. First, let's establish what this thing is. It DOES snap over the rim of your AP plunger and keeps the scoop and stir paddle from falling out. It DOES hold your filters in an attached compartment ABOVE the previously mentioned compartment (if we were to stand the AP up vertically as you would during pressing). Sound like something you want?

Here is my fork in the road. I can do one of two things. Option ONE: I can contain the filters using the black plastic cap from the bottom of the aeropress, which will expose the rubber plunger to the elements if you were to throw it into a bag. Option TWO: I can use an entirely different cap (at greater material expense) so that the black plastic cap stays there, keeping the plunger more or less clean.

Now my question to you guys: which do you want? Does the cleanliness of the rubber plunger matter to you? Would you rather store the black plastic cap elsewhere so you can decompress the plunger, or does that not matter?

option with the plunger exposed: you have to clean both the plastic cap and the plunger before using...unles you don't care to clean either.

other option: you still need to clean the plastic cap...unless you don't care.

In either scenario, I'd suspect a simple rinse is probably adequate for most situations, so to me it wouldn't realy matter which design youchose from that perspective.

Otherwise, I'd prefer more compact to bulkier...if that matters.

Good info and consideration, thanks man. I honestly can make it work either way so it's whatever people want.

Anyone else?
