    Love the video. But I never pour water through the funnel, I don't want it wet for the next batch of grinds to go through. Great video though.

    New to coffee, struggling, and love French Press weekends at home…. but can't get the same out of my many attempts to replicate in a single serve machine at work 🙁  … Going to try your method next! Thanks – great & fun to watch.

    this was very helpful. i dont let it steep for 3 minutes and i do moisten the filter beforehand a bit but other than that, i did learn a lot. it seems every video is different with what they recommend. some i see have really sophisticated grinders, some sophisticated kettles and some sophisticated scales. as others have said, the aeropress can be used many different ways and coffee is ultimately a matter of personal taste. great video and very cute! 🙂

    I'm not sure what's not to like here. Firstly, I just bought one of these and was instantly underwhelmed when all the water drained out as I was stirring; secondly, though the coffee wasn't bad, it certainly wasn't nuanced as a result of the near instant completion. So, like everyone else, I read up and realized there was an inverted technique, though only reading it, impatiently I might add, was not demonstrative enough. Now, I read some of the comments, and how supercilious are coffee folks…"another guy who didn't wash the filter–enjoy your paper coffee…" Wow. Enjoy your limited cognition dipshit. Then: "…a french press for hipsters…" Well, I beg to differ. I am tired of the daily grind of my french press, and I am tired of drinking nearly a liter of coffee in one sitting. This, friends and neighbors, is cool because it is done quicker and I can single-serve without buying a Keurig or some other such nonsense. And yes, I have a tiny french press, too, but I like what comes out of my aeropress better. I considered a job at a coffee store, but I don't think I could deal with a third of you nudniks. Thanks for a great vid.

    Cheers for the upload, my cheap £15 drip coffee machine died recently and been back onto instant coffee and have been thinking about what sort of coffee I want to make, would use freshly boiled water around 80-90C, would not weigh the coffee, but use a couple of tablespoons into a coffee / herb grinder.

    The aeropress with a metal filter makes a lot of sense as the paper can absorb any oils present and might work if I add cocoa solids or pure chocolate as it blocks the drip filter I used to use.

    The inverted method seems better as you can brew the coffee for as long as you want and then filter into the cup
