  1. I love the aeropress. I actually have a $200 coffee maker I received as a gift one year, and have just left it in the pantry, and now only use the Aero Press. I like mine dark and recommend Dark Knight coffee for those who want an economically friendly coffee.

    Here’s the best price I found on the aeropress to anyone who doesn’t have one. It comes with everything you need except your coffee.

  2. I have an espresso machine, French press, Mocha pot, and Filter machine at home, but since investing in my Aeropress these have all become kitchen ornaments. Aeropress rocks.
