Bought one of these for home a couple years ago and made the good coffee I enjoy at home even better. Decided that when the office I work in downgraded their coffee from meh to blech, I hoped that it would be brought back up to meh if run through my Aeropress. It actually made it enjoyable rather than tolerable. After sharing it with a couple colleagues I couldn't get it out of the office again so I had to buy another one. In actuality this is my 4th Aeropress I have purchased and gifted 2 other to family who also love them. 2 were purchased from Aeropress website, one from a local shop and the latest one from Amazon.ca which was the best price of the lot by a long way.

FYI the unit I received is brownish as all 3 others I purchased were, not gray as stated in the description. I've sen the gray ones before at a coffee stand at a local farmers market so I know the difference.

I was looking at buying a fancy espresso maker, but since I only drink coffee at home on the weekends, and I'm the only one in the house who drinks coffee, I decided to be reasonnable and hold on spending 600$ on a great espresso machine. Instead, I trusted the positive reviews for the AeroPress, and I'm glad I did.

This device makes great coffee. I does use a bit more coffee than an espresso, but the money saved on the purchase makes up for it. Of course, it's much better if you use high quality, fresh coffee.

Here are a few tips I can share:

- You may use a paper filter for more than one cup. I typically make 2 cups with each.
- When you pour the water, it may start to drip a bit in the cup, something you want to avoid if you want the water to remain in contact with the coffee to get some taste. To avoid it, place the "press" cylinder on top right away. The air chamber on top will prevent the water going down, because of a succion effect.
- Press your coffee until your start hearing bubbles or seing pitting in the coffee grounds.
- To clean, remove the bottom and press directly in the garbage bin.
- If you have a boiler on which you can select temperature, I find 85 C to be a great temperature.

Having gotten real tired of various drip coffee makers, I decided to make the purchase thinking that drinking less coffee due to more involvement in making it would be a good idea. WRONG!!! I'm drinking more coffee now and, using the "Hario MSS-1B Mini Mill Slim Coffee Grinder" I think I've come close to a taste only available in heaven. Hand-grinding with the Hario allows a much finer grind than I can get with your average electronic coffee mill, and I actually enjoy the exercise and the reward is truly amazing. One does well to read the instructions and I now use water temp of around 180 Fahrenheit, 82 celsius. I've yet to try some of the suggestions in the little manual. I've found the perfect mug for one fat scoop of extremely fine grind fresh Kicking Horse "kick-ass" or "chocolate" dark beans. For blind folks like myself, there are variations which will work quite well since blind folks cannot see the fill marks on the outer sleeve. Plastic microwave proof measuring cups of appropriate sizes and a talking cooking thermometer allows learning timings for various amounts of water to reach the desired temperature, eg maybe 30 seconds for 1/2 cup to reach 175 degrees. At present, I use my trusty $8.00 kettle and my talking cooking thermometer. I found a PDF version of the manual which allowed my speech-based OCR to read the product info for me. I'll be in touch with the manufacturer to see if the might not place a text version of the manual on their web site since the technology I use is not available nor owned by many blind folks. Gotta go now to grind my supper coffee!

May 17 2014: Just received a replacement sleeve from Aerobie; I had written to them about 3 weeks ago concerning an abrasion on the inner surface of the sleeve which they called crazing.

After using it for a year: AeroPress makes great coffee, every time. And it is easy to use. I don't bother with all the gear it comes with, using only the plunger and cylinder and a stainless-steel filter. I have a 1-cup stove-top espresso maker that I've used for 30 years and it makes great coffee too, but it takes almost 10 minutes to clean it, set it up and wait for it to do its thing, before giving me pretty good espresso. My AeroPress is way easier and quicker. While water is boiling, I pop the puck of old grinds into the compost bucket, rinse off the plunger and filter, put the filter and cap on and put in three scoops of (freshly ground) beans. (A note on filters: get the stainless steel one and avoid faffing around with wasteful, throw-away paper filters.) Pour in boiled water, wait a minute, stir it, plunge. Great espresso every time. Very highly recommended from someone who has tried all the other methods of making coffee.

I've had one of these for about six months now. It sits on top of my $800 espresso machine, and gets used every single day (which is more than I can say for my espresso machine).

You'll use about twice as much ground coffee as you're used to for either espresso or drip, but you won't care. The quality of the coffee it produces really is that good. It's smooth, full and rich, but almost entirely without bitterness.

The secret, as far as I can tell, is that by using a very fine grind (same as for an espresso machine) and only soaking the grounds for 30 seconds, you pull out all the 'good stuff' before the bitter parts of the coffee get as chance to dissolve. Personally, I like a touch of bitterness in my coffee, so i'll sometimes wait up to a minute to push the water through. You can experiment until you find the best brew for you.

The instructions recommend filling with about two ounces of water, then plunging that through and topping up your cup with hot water. Personally, I fill the cylinder up to the top with hot (not quite boiling) water, and push the whole lot through. I think it tastes better that way, but mostly it's just one less step.

There won't be crema. If you're an espresso geek like me you might have a hard time with that - at first. I stopped caring pretty quickly.

Use fresh ground coffee. You really get the most out of the grounds, so the difference between fresh ground and pre-ground is more noticeable than if you'd used a traditional method.

Another tip: the filters last forever! Ok, that's an exaggeration, but not by much. Feeling experimental, I decided to keep washing and reusing the same filters over and over.
