Bottom Line: First time a coffee product was buzz worthy.
Positive Product Points

Very positive first experience. The coffee was delicious and easy to make.  Among the best cups of coffee that I ever had.

Not hard to use (but you do have to read the directions). Even better, watch the online video.

Negative Product Points

- May be too complicated for first cup of the day (my copper pavoni is way too complicated for the first cup of the day).
- They suggest 175 degrees water brewing temperature for dark roast.  They suggest using a thermometer. . I am going to have to go out and buy a hotpot with a settable thermostat.
- The directions omitted that the black plastic object is used for storing the filters. This was obvious in the online video not  the aeropress website.

Detailed Commentary

I am a low level coffee geek. I am content with Peets Expresso Roast brewed in a Melitta filter cone.  I  can carried away on a trip to Kona or crawl through cafes in SF or Manhattan with other Coffee Geeks.

So, I have heard the buzz about Aeropress. My first experience at my niece's home was positive but not outstanding. I am not sure whether it was the coffee or how carefully she followed the directions.

So when I was given one I decided to read all the directions carefully (very important) and read the online sites. The result was enormous.  I had one of the best cups of coffee from it that  I have ever had.   The texture is smooth and rich and flavorful. It was less acidic than the (very low acid) espresso that I make from the same grind.  I was very impressed by the speed.

Buying Experience

N/A as it was gift.

Three Month Followup

My aerobie has become my special occasion coffee device. But my regular cup of joe is still a cone filter.
