As I stated before - I'm looking for something that can make about 375g of normal strength coffee, or 350g of double strength coffee.  I figure you need about 450ml capacity.  Current capacity is about 270 and must be shorted if the coffee is overly bloomey.

I may be wrong, and not to be presumptious, but I believe Alan is asking how many times out of 10 (as an example) do you wish to do the higher capacity?

Thank you Andrew.

For what percentage of your pressings would you like to exceed the present capacity?

Best,

Alan

Posted August 18, 2012 link

Alan. At the moment I use my Aeropress to make a couple of 12 oz cups before leaving for work in the morning," Aero-carno" style. I think a 12 or 14oz capacity Aeropress would be perfect.

For me, it's about 4/10.  But to be more precise, it's for whenever there are 3 or more people wanting coffee.  I can make coffee for 2 with my aeropress, but not for 3 or 4.

I'd also suggest, Alan, that a larger size might be worth more money, in that, at least for someone like me, it would more likely to be used "for company" and therefore might also benefit from being a bit classier looking (actual glass?, lever?)

Oh, well if upgrades are on the table, how about adding a little Trifecta-style check valve on the bottom to eliminate premature drip-through and render the inverted method obsolete? ;)

......But seriously can we look forward to a larger Aeropress any time in the future?

Posted August 18, 2012 link

sounds like we're fixing to repeat this thread's history all over again and start hammering on alan for:

1) a larger version
2) a glass version
3) a metal filter, (which now exists, btw)
4) his blind-taste-tested recipe, which uses cooler water and more coffee than the frugal, metal filter-obsessed, folks like
5) validation of the desperate hopes and dreams of the folks who can't accept that machines that make real espresso cost real money.  (sorry, but the last, aerated bits of aeropress coffee at the end of the press are NOT "crema", in any way, shape, manner or form, no matter how hard you try to press).

maybe we can drive him away again:/sarcasm:

alan, since you asked, i have a need for a bigger aeropress about 1/100 pressings--at the most.  i would not use the larger one often enough to justify the cost.

Each AeroPress scoop makes concentrate which dilutes to 5 oz (142g) of normal strength (1.25%) coffee.  2.6 scoops meets your first request.  

But it would take two, 2.5 scoop pressings to meet your request for 350g of double strength coffee.

Best,

Alan
