Very cool. garage invention lives.

I have harboured an image of a version of the Aeropress with a Pavone-like lever.

Hi Paul,

On your next visit to the SF Bay Area, visit Rancho Parnasis in San Francisco.  It's a small cafe that serves AeroPress coffee exclusively.  They don't have any other coffee maker.  They use 165F water and push the AeroPress in an orange juicer, which has a Pavone-like lever.

Is your daughter still at Stanford?

Best,

Alan

Alan, she's working for Google in Mountain View and commuting from San Francisco. So the next time I visit I would have liked to check out Rancho Parnasis, but apparently it's defunct, is that right?  I will console myself with Philz, which I discovered on my last trip.

Yes, apparently defunct.  

I gave a talk about the AeroPress at Google Mtn View a few months ago.

A year and half ago.

The word is that they went under because their coffee was terrible.

Just kidding.

I don't know why they folded. They were located in a very seedy part of town.

if you still have my email, Alan, send me a note off-board and tell me when and where you talked at Google and I'll ask my daughter about it.

I have a question for those with lots of brewing experience.

I like the Aeropress. It's my go to brew method. Cheap, simple, forgiving, fast, portable. But for me it tends to produce coffee that is muted in flavor. Round, warm, smooth, easy to approach -- but not especially complex. Often I will have a cup of Aeropress coffee and then using the same beans brew in my moka pot. And the difference is sometimes surprising. I'll get pronounced stone fruit flavors that are completely absent in the cup from my Aeropress.

I've played with grind, temperature, and time and I can't get these same flavors in the Aeropress. Why not?
