Negative Product Points
Looks weird carrying it through the office. But oh well, such is my quest.
I have been on a quest lately for a great cup of coffee. Since I decided that my Capresso MT500 was scorching the coffee, it was time for something new. I have switched in the morning to a Melitta Manual drip brew. The coffee has been great. I need something during the day at my office though. Right now our coffee is horrendous. One reason is the coffee itself, we do not buy premium coffee. Second, we have a horrible brewing system. Add it together and I either have to go to the coffee shop during the day or just plain suffer. I had a french press here but it was too much hassle. So I ordered the AeroPress. This thing is amazing. I used the ground coffee that we have on hand and made my first cup. What I made with the AeroPress far outshines the usual. This thing makes a great tasting, rich cup of coffee with minimal effort even using second rate coffee.
Final verdict, it is built well, it has all of teh pieces that I need, it is easy to use and, despite looking like a fool walking down the hallway, I love being able to make a great cup at work.
This is money WELL spent.
Easy. 2day shipping was only $.76 more and it shipped in a day.
Three Month Followup
Still love it. It makes great coffee, has been durable and I have found that because of the filter mechanism, you can shoot out a "puck" of grounds and it makes the rest of the clean up easy.
I still look crazy walking down the hall in my law firm with the AeroPress in my hand though:)
