If you love coffee, you have to buy this.,
This review is from: Aeropress Coffee Maker + Extra 350 Micro Filters - Aerobie (Kitchen & Home)
I was looking for a replacement for my mocha pot and wanted the ability to make something other than a filter/caffetiere coffee. I looked at lots of espresso machines, but for a good one, they are very expensive.
This is superb. It takes 3-4 minutes start to finish for a coffee. No waiting for coffee to stand, no waiting 15 minutes for an espresso machine to warm up. And it takes 30 seconds to wash up.
And wow, what a cup of coffee. Its worth taking a few extra seconds to warm up the aeropress, and at the same time rinsing the filter, but this does only take a few seconds, as you are getting your coffee ready. It makes some good strong tasting espresso, as well as some longer drinks, depending on how much coffee, water, stand time you use. It takes a few goes to get it right, but well worth it, and I enjoy the ability to vary my drink depending on mood and time of day etc.
If you love coffee, you have to own this. Even better, its small enough, and doesnt require power, so you can take it on holiday with you!
