Hello All,

I apologize for self-promotion.  But I liked this article because they recorded the interview and printed it as-is.  Often I cringe at these articles thinking, "That's not what I said".  This article is what I said.

Alan,
Very interesting read, you should be rightfully proud of your successes. Thanks again for the tips on making the SR500 bean chamber cone, I think you could sell quite a few of those as well if you wanted to. I'm hoping Mark won't have a problem with this- Your thread continues to be a source of help to Aeropress users, and I don't believe promotion is your motive or intent here.

Cheers,
Ron

Seems Alan is getting a lot of press these days. When it rains it pours. :)

http://priceonomics.com/the-invention-of-the-aeropress/

A rather detailed history of Alan, the Aerobee, and the Aeropress. CG (and this thread, why I think may be the second longest thread on CG, not the longest) gets a nod; probably best we leave some of the more heated debate in this thread regarding the topic of "espresso" behind us though ;-)

Something I meant to post a while back to this thread but forgot (I don't know if anyone else ever posted it); A device like the aeropress was invented by the Chemex company in the late 1940s / early 1950s. It's actually quite similar in function and design to the aeropress. Check it out. It's the "Tubadipdrip" from Chemex. Besides the photo below, you can see it in the right side of this photo with the Chemex inventor.

From the descriptions I am able to find the Tubadipdrip functioned more like a long tubular strainer. Doesn't seem to form a seal or involve piston action. Cool to read about "slum-bum" though. Seems to have been another inspired inventor.

Hello All,

The 2014 U.S. AeroPress Championships will be at Stumptown in Seattle at 7:00PM on Friday April 25th.  The address is 1115 12th Ave, Seattle.

I'll be there and I hope some of you will come and say hello.  These events are a lot of fun.  

Many thanks to Stumptown for hosting the event.

Best regards,

Alan

The caption says,

"Tubadipdrip consists of two aluminum tubes, the inner one having a perforated bottom.  To make tea, tea leaves are put into the inner tube, which is plunged in and out of the water filled outer tube.  The Tubadipdrip also makes coffee, cocktails, aerates milk or water."

The photo shows the inner tube held above the outer tube and liquid streaming out of the perforated bottom.

It reminds me of the many perforated tea strainers that are on the market.  There is also a variation on the French press available which has a finely perforated stainless steel tube.

That TubaDipDrip is cool. It isn't an early Aeropress though. No pressing, just dipping and dripping.

My version isn't a type of Aeropress either but it's a little bit closer. Not as cool but it makes good coffee.
I could call it Mokapump or SilcaBrew? Lucio Del Piccolo probably has three like this.

A few of my early prototypes were pressurized by a small bicycle pump.  But that wasn't self-cleaning, like my final design.

I remember seeing that photo of you with a number of prototypes. I've thought about the Aeropress design quite a bit and can see why you decided on that approach.

I searched Lucio's web site and could only find one coffee pot with a "pompa". It looks to be more of an agitator though.
