Positive Product Points

Sleek, Sophisticated, and affordably priced.  It very portable, and the replacement filters are abundant and cheap.  It is very small and is easy to stow away for trips.

Negative Product Points

Takes away a lot of the acidity of the coffee. Sometimes coffee tastes a little weak, and sour.

Detailed Commentary

Well, I cant say to many negative things about this thing.  The one thing i will say is that it is no espresso machine.  Many people on here have described this as a machine that makes better coffee then their 2000 dollar machines.  Those people need instructions on how to use their machines.  This unit however is great for making a portable cup of coffee when on the road.  I just got back from being on tour for 3 months and I drank the Aerobie and my french press exclusively.  The taste of the coffee can sometimes lack the complexity, and tangyness of regular coffee, or espresso.  I found through my use that with a medium to course grind the Aerobie doesnt taste very good.  With a real fine grind like espresso, the Aerobie tastes great!  Many people describe the positive aspect of this machine the fact that the coffee has less acidity and is much smoother.  Those are the things that I dont like about it.  I love the acidity of coffee.  If you like your coffee very smooth and mild, you will love this machine.  That being said i would buy this again in a heartbeat for a travel machine..

Buying Experience

Fabulous.  There is a reason why they have been rated top canadian coffee retailer for the past 10 years straight.  Very knowledgeable, cheap, prompt, and friendly.  I have bought several other things from them including a grinder, and a silvia wand for my gaggia, and have always had a positive experience.
