My morning workout, and concerns about using plastic,
This review is from: AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker with Bonus 350 Micro Filters (Kitchen)
It's a terrific morning workout if you're trying to get rid of those bat-wings on the backs of your upper arms! However, my senior citizen mother would not have the strength to brew an entire cup. Suggested for men only, and women who want the workout.
Also, if you're traveling with it, be sure and bring along a sturdy mug, I wouldn't try it on a paper cup.
The coffee is fine, I don't really find it to be much better than from my old electric Krups coffee pot, but it is faster.
I do have one concern, I'd like to be assured that the plastic is BPA-free. If it is, please brag about it in the product description. If it isn't, please make it so, and when the new BPA-free version is for sale, I'll buy another.
I'm disappointed to see Amazon prices climb almost on a daily basis, especially in the current economic climate. I put this in my cart one night, and it was $19.99. The next day I was looking for something else to meet the "free shipping" quota and the price had jumped to $24.99.
A few weeks later it's over $32.
The above is relevant, as I feel the product is well worth $19.99. $24.99 is pushing it, but fine with free shipping.
Over $32 and I might consider buying a nice electric appliance instead.

I don't find it that hard to press. I lay one hand on top of the other and just let the weight of my hands and arms to the work. My grinder doesn't go all the way to expresso but it's quite fine, finer than drip anyway.
