This place is class - http://barn.bigcartel.com/ - Went to their spot in Berlin last week. Smoothest coffee in years. You can also buy their beans to have in your own time. They’re pretty spenny, and its not quite the same without their baristas doing their magic, but pretty good nonetheless. I brewed my own in my fiancé’s stovetop Italian cafetiere. Absolutelz divine.

yes - less hassle - I use the fine one as adds more pressure to the push.

Do you just rinse the paper filters ready for next time? Think I'll cop a steel one at some point.

Yip.
I don't like that some coffee drips thru when first adding water using the normal method.

Yeah I invert it for the same reason, no seepage and better brew all round

Never reused my filters, steel ftw Ruben

Started the day with a stiff double measure on an empty stomach@ 4:30 this morning. Had a nasty belly ache all day long, never had it from instant. Coincidence or report to nan kid thread? Will start an AeroPress intolerance thread if there's enough interest.

It's aero over most machines. Expensive machines over aero.
