How do you brew it?
I use heavy cream and artificial sweeteners, but I started brewing my coffee with an aeropress and have found the coffee tastes much better and I need less add-ins. I'm hoping to slowly wean off the sweetener.
This reminds me of a buchner funnel with a pressurized assist from the plunger.. picked one up recently, waiting for my next batch to try it out.
This is such a sexy setup. I love your matching coffee mug lol. Get an Aeropress to go along with it ;)
If your work requires you to come home late, it should pay for you to grab a take-away on the way back home. If someone can sit down for 3 courses with wine then they have time to fix something themselves and shouldn't be able to claim.
Coffee making equipment shouldn't be over £20. I use this every day and it's the best coffee I drink: [link]
Milk frother...that's beyond the pale.
Look into getting an Aeropress. I'm borderline retarded doing anything in the kitchen but everyday I have several people in my UV apartment building ask if they can come by for a coffee made by moi. Super easy.
Incredibly good tasting coffee
Fast and no cleaning required
Portable (does not require electricity, just almost-boiling water)
Can make lattes/mochas! Produces coffee concentrate which is tempered with water or milk
Uses more coffee
Only makes 1-2 servings at a time
It's easy: Get fresh roasted beans, grind them yourself and get an Aeropress. I use one packet of splenda, nothing else...and I didn't even like coffee until I used one of these. No bitterness, just flavor. I make a cup in the morning, and take the machine to work with me in case I want another.
Thank you all for your help and suggestions.
I bought an Aerobie Aeropress coffee maker and Hario ceramic grinder this weekend.
Will be shopping for some nice beans this week to start my brewing experience.

I bought an Aerobie Aeropress coffee maker and Hario ceramic grinder recently on a trip to Dubai.
Hi there, I actually wanted to bother you for a minute. I don't have any stores nearby and was looking to order an aeropress on Amazon and it's 30$.
Is it better to get a french press since it can brew more than one cup or a B&D coffeemaker. They seem to be cheaper in the 20~22$ range. Also, I've heard about the chemex mentioned a lot, it's close to ~ 36$, would I be better off with that? Lastly, will I need a grinder?
Any coffee beans/powder you recommend from Pete's or Starbucks? I really want to experience good coffee. Thanks a ton!
While I've never tried it since I'm not a tea imbiber, much preferring the basic T&W, but I've seriously wondered how an Aeropress might work. I use one with a stainless steel reusable filter for my espresso in the morning and it's my favorite brewing method. I use the inverted method, where you stand it upside down and add the ground, um, coffee. Then fill it with boiling water and screw the filter on top. You can let it sit for as long as you like, and then turn it over on the coffee cup and slowly push the plunger. Seems like it might work nicely for those infusion types.

My girlfriend and I use an Aeropress, and have a nice electric kettle. We buy local coffee, and grind it ourselves usually. If we're on a road trip, we'll have the coffee shop grind it for us.
The Aeropress is much like a french press, except a lot smoother of a taste. With our set up, you can have an amazing cup of coffee in less than 3 minutes, fresh brewed.

Whereabouts are you looking? I found one for $30 [link]
Io mi faccio il caffè "americano" a casa con l'AeroPress, è pratica e non costa nemmeno tanto, si pulisce velocemente e occupa poco spazio una volta che si è terminato di fare il caffè. La consiglio a tutti quelli che si vogliono avvicinare al caffè americano. Qui un video che ne mostra il funzionamento.
This will do the job.
It might be more than what you want to spend though.
I've had success making espresso vodka with my Aeropress just following the instructions with vodka instead of water.
Everyone is going to recommend you purchase an AeroPress. Everyone is also going to recommend you purchase a nice grinder and tasty beans.
I used to own a stovetop espresso maker, and still own many coffee makers. Currently, I have a high-end espresso machine and grinder, a french press, an AeroPress and a Chemex. I use them all situationally. My espresso machine gets the most use. However, I grind some beans most mornings and use my AeroPress on the run. As for the French Press/Chemex, I bring them out when I have to be at my desk for long periods of time.
An AeroPress costs $30. A hand held milk frother costs $10 or less. I can keep both of these at my desk or pack in my carry on and never have to experience the crap that is Starbucks and save hundreds of dollars on superior coffee.
I've been using an AeroPress Coffee Maker with a Stainless Steel Filter. I think it waste less than a cheesecloth and takes a lot less effort too.
Fuck Keurigs! Just buy an AeroPress. It's so much cheaper per cup, is practically self cleaning, and makes better coffee. You can make it as strong as you want, and can even make espresso ("coffee concentrate" if you want to be very technical.) And you can use whatever coffee you want!
Rather than spending all that money on a fancy brewer, and then $1 per cup of coffee, buy a Zojirushi Boiler (or similar), and you can make coffee nearly as fast as with a Kurig. I don't mean within 15 seconds, but so short that you won't hesitate to make a cup. Or you can just nuke some water in a Pyrex measuring cup, but that takes 2-3 minutes.
I own that exact boiler and an AeroPress, and it's amazing. I have 195° water on tap all of the time, and the 4 qt one is tall enough to dispense right into an AeroPress on top of a tall mug.
I even use an AeroPress at work at my desk even though there's a Keurig available. I get hot water from the water dispenser (combo water cooler/heater that work provides), use the AeroPress normally, push the grounds into the waste basket, then wash the remaining grounds off of the plunger with a chemistry wash bottle right into the waste basket, too. (There's a trash bag in it, and it's not much water.)
Thanks, I had seen that website a couple of minutes ago. I can get this one from Amazon for a slightly higher price. [link]
Is a metal filter a necessary add on, it's like 18 pounds extra. I heard it makes a better cup.
i have never used one myself, but they are supposedly the best for under $1000
