5.0 out of 5 stars Better than French Press., January 6, 2009
This review is from: AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker with Bonus 350 Micro Filters (Kitchen)
This product solves all the problems I have with a French Press.

French presses are recommended for full extraction without paper filtration. But I find that once the coffee steeps it's not as hot as I like it. Cleaning a french press leaves grounds all over the sink.

The Aeropress offers full extraction and makes delicious hot coffee. You clean it by shooting the puck of grounds right into the trash. You can also throw it in the suitcase for travel. The paper filter is very thin and doesn't interfere with the flavor.

I find it best for making 1-2 cups. Five stars for coffee taste, convenience, durability, and cleanup.

I too wondered about the mess cleaning a French press until I lined a collander with a single paper towel over a sink and poured the grounds with rinse water into it. No more grounds in the sink, and replacing paper towels is easier than finding replacement microfilters. The double walled stainless steel French presses do a better job of maintaining temperature than the glass ones do.

For a second I was wondering why you would throw the puck of grounds into the suitcase. :-)

Good review, though, thanks for the chuckle. :-)

Hilarious! I was thinking the same thing, then when I read your post, I laughed my butt off. Thanks for that much needed commentary!

And, thanks to the original reviewer for great info.

I read it the same way, and wondered the same thing...!

I just put the leftover coffee and its grounds into a compost bin, or spread them over some strawberries we have growing out back. They love them, and there's no mess!
