Trees are a big renewable resource. Metal is expensive and difficult to clean properly. Untreated paper filters are the best.
I have the Kalita Wave. Similar principle but allegedly a little less sensitive to technique (yes, I do watch too many reviews) but a bit of a ritual.
Paper filters soak up some of the coffee oils equalling less flavor and caffeine. I've never had any problem cleaning a metal filter especially the one built for the Aeropress. Maybe we're talking about different things?
Not until now. I looked it up. Way cool. Can’t find it for sale even on Amazon.ChrisinHove wrote: ↑Sat Jul 04, 2020 12:29 pmI have the Kalita Wave. Similar principle but allegedly a little less sensitive to technique (yes, I do watch too many reviews) but a bit of a ritual.
The Aeropress coffee is a cleaner flavour and a clearer brew.
Have you seen the Hario Air kettle? It’s the new cheap version of the hipster goose neck for precise control when making pourover.
Chris. I learned about the Aeropress from some of your UK colleagues on a trip there in the early 2000's. I bought my first AP shortly thereafter. In fact, I do allow the coffee to brew a bit inverted. I don't see myself as a coffee Afi, the paper filters leak a little when brewing according to the instructions. Inverted, all the coffee takes time together before the actual press. I have the thin wafer metal filter. One of the early ones. It still serves well. I made my first metal filter of ultra fine metal screen. I could never refine the edges and eventually that attempt wore out the locking ring.
Hario v60 come in glass and ceramic, Kalita in stainless, Chemex in glass. I think these are the other main players.JD Spydo wrote: ↑Sun Jul 05, 2020 9:57 pmI most definitely want to try one of these "Aeropress" units. Anything in the line of "coffee" always gets my attention. Not trying to get off the subject but another "coffee" related item that seems to be taking off in the past year or so are those coffee "pour over" devices. I was just given one of the Melitta pour over devices and it worked all right. But it is made of polycarbonate and I would rather have a pour over device made of either stainless or ceramic.
So I'm wondering if this Aeropress company might make those pour over devices? Or maybe one of you guys might know of a really good quality pour over coffee making devices?
