This is an easy to use, fairly quick method of pressing coffee. The aeorpress is different from a press-pot in that it uses a filter, so if you don't like grounds in your coffee, or have cholersterol issues, this may be for you. The coffee that results is absolutely great-you can even get a crema.
Negative Product Points
There are several parts to this product. Doesn't make it hard to use, just not easy to take along. Also, seems to work best when making 1 cup. Haven't had much luck in making a carafe, even following the printed directions.
This little item makes the best coffee,really comparable to the expensive machines. As noted above, there are several parts to the aeropress, but it goes together seemlessly and quickly. Included directions are easy to read. You heat your water in a kettle or the microwave, add the grounds according to taste, stir, wait, press-and there you are! You can experiment by varying the amount of coffee you use and the temperature of the water for the taste you like the best. Espressos, cappucinno's and latte's come out quite well. Everything you need comes included, except the coffee and water!
