1.0 out of 5 stars Simply doesn't fit properly, 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: S Filter for AeroPress - Ultra Fine Stainless Steel Coffee Filter (Kitchen & Home)
This thing is too thick to allow the base to fit onto my Aeropress once the filter is in place (because of the metal rim you can see in the photographs). If you force it on it is almost impossible to get the base off afterwards. Forget about the inverted method of using the Aeropress as you cannot get the base to click into place. First cup using this method, therefore, went everywhere. Tried the normal method and, frankly, the result was rather thin and tasteless. Will not be bothering with again and will return. Having said all that I am not generally in awe of the Aeropress anyway so will probably return to the old filter method or buy another cafetiere the breaking of which led me down the filter route in the first place.

Hi Alan,

Sorry you had a disappointing experience. It sounds like you've already returned the S Filter and moved to a different brew method.

For others who may read this, we've prepared a video fitting guide to assist the few customers who've contacted us about this issue. It shows you how to fit the S Filter easily and safely in situations like this:

I get a blank screen when I follow the link. In fact nothing shows up anywhere on the site. Using Firefox v.25.0

That's strange. Site shows up for us, but we'll look into trouble-shooting. Thanks for the browser tip.

In the meantime, here's the same video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkJ6tnbqSrA

Just received my S filter today and was looking forward to an even richer tasting brew from my Aeropress. I watched the video about fitting the filter, using increasing thicknesses of paper filters until the press will finally accept the S filter. Didn't work for me. It appears that even if I am able to force the thing to lock, it will be a real pain to unlock it. I'm amazed that most of the other reviews did not address this issue.

Hi Cowgirl,

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you had a frustrating experience. Just so you know, with our lifetime guarantee you can return or replace your S Filter at any time for any reason.

You may want to try using your AeroPress with a paper filter for 2-3 weeks. Some customers have reported an average "breaking in" period for their AeroPresses of a couple weeks using a paper filter. Our fitting guide just expedites this process. (Thanks for checking that out, btw.)

Please feel free to email us at help[at]kaffeologie.com if you have any questions or need some more fitting tips.
