Enjoy.

I have now made 700+ cups with my aeropress and it's held up perfectly. That's a lot of money saved from my previous habit of buying coffee/espresso out everyday.
Thanks for the links! I just tried my first cup of coffee using the aeropress and it's fantastic. I don't know why I waited so long to get one.

Yay I got an Aeropress yesterday! Now to figure out how to start using it. I have some really oily beans in the Infinity hopper and some more regular grounds from my local roaster - any tips for a complete novice?

I really like the tumbler ones as well. I'm just afraid with my luck I'll break them.

Nate, I was reading some comments about coffee, and it was stated that a lighter roast has more caffeine than a darker roast. Your thoughts?

I'm not Nate, but Yes, lighter roasts do have more caffeine than darker (Given the same beans). Caffeine is volatile and will go away while you roast it, but the difference is so minimal that you would be hard pressed to measure the difference. Also, since the weight of the bean changes more than the amount of caffeine does, if you weigh out your beans instead of scooping them, you will end up with more caffeine in your cup with a darker roast.

I can make those. Clear or with color.


Nate, I'm about to make an order and have it sent to my Father. Can you please put the invoice in, but black out the prices? Thanks!

Pretty much. Not at all something to concern yourself with.
