    Thread: Aeropress coffee maker, where have you been all my life?

      I just bought one of these off amazon for my gf as a christmas gift and so far I'm the one who's been hogging it all the time. I'm not a big coffee drinker but this little contraption makes the best darn coffee I've ever tasted! It tends to use more ground coffee per cup but the result is smooth and never bitter, apparently due to the extremely short brewing time.

      I'm getting another one ASAP for my dad who happens to be a huge coffee snob.

      Anybody else have one?

      It looks like an upside down french press. Have you ever heard of a french press??

      I have a French press, this is not a French press. Brew time in the aeropress is under 60 seconds and it is very finely filtered so (to my tastebuds at least) it gives a much smoother, less bitter cup of coffee. It also makes really good espresso.

      My brother just went from an Aeropress to a Chemex and he's enjoying both. Says the Aeropress is easier/faster but the Chemex makes better overall coffee. I don't drink enough to know or tell the difference.

      Been trying to use an inverted method lately. To be honest, I have no idea what the fuss is about as the end result is exactly the same.

      What am I doing wrong ?

      I'll try it out when my french press breaks.

      So probably never.
