First attempt tonight, a measly 65 inches.

Surely you guys can beat that!

GREAT! we have a new sport!

Spent puck puking, OK, there may be a better name but I got the ball rolling!
LOL

Alan, I love the Aeropress, I have two, one at work and one at home. They are in my "travel kit" Thanks for a great product.

Thank you Wayne.

Best,

Alan

Paul,

I consulted my "Engineering Unit Conversions" Third Edition, by Lindeburg.

I can't find a unit called "the way to the neighbor's yard".  But whatever it converts to, it must beat my puny 65 inches.

Best,

Alan

It's generally measured in Imperial metric cubits, Alan. And I can assure you, it was less than 65 of these inches you speak of.

Can we enter my grandson Scott Adler?  He's the guy you speak to when you call our office and order replacements for lost caps, etc.  He's 6' 5".  So he'll be launching from greater elevation, and applying greater punch (he lifts iron).

Rasqual (6' and a lot of inches), where are you?

PS  Ballistic theory recommends a launch angle of 45 degrees above horizontal.

Unless you're really short, simple kinematics (ignoring air friction, the puck breaking apart mid-flight, etc) predicts an optimal angle less than 45.

Back to high school physics for you!

But what if you're trying to get it over the neighbor's hedge?

Ironically, it's still inverted.

Hmm, if I'm interpreting these pics correctly, what are you using for the valve?

It's a dispensing valve from a Trader Joe's honey bear.

This was just a test. I didn't want to damage an Aeropress... not yet. The way I attached it makes it hard to both seal the cap while also sealing the disk against the tapered end of the AP cylinder. So it either leaks a little coffee or a little sediment if I don't get it perfect. If the valve holds up to repeatedly passing hot coffee then I'll sacrifice an Aeropress cap. At that point it would work non-inverted and just be an AP cap with an integral valve: a normal Aeropress except the coffee would stay put until you pressed the plunger.


edit: After six cups of coffee it is working like a champ.
And it turns out the threading on the plastic jar I used is the same as the catch jar on a LIDO grinder. So now I can grind straight into the Aeropress.
