First of all, I shipped this back to Moo today with a little something extra. Thanks for chance to use this space age marvel and see what the hoopla was about. I have neither puts (except for the little something extra for Dan), nor takes. Kept the cigars in my humi while they were here.

My thoughts on the aeropress:

Interesting gadget but not too impressed with my results although I must confess I have very limited experience with espresso. I was unable to obtain crema, false crema, kinda sorta crema, or anything close to crema. Perhaps my grinder is not up to the task. I tried Kona, Columbian, and Kenya AA. It is however very easy to use and clean and an interesting concept. I think I will stick with my French press and vaccuum brew. Thanks again for the opportunity to try this out.

There is always one.

I don't care for Kona, Columbian, and Kenya AA in the areopress or in a moka pot, I do like Yemen, brazil, el Salvador, and some Guatemala in it very much.

As far as false crema goes I assume you use fresh roast, no CO2 left equals no crema of any kind or bloom.

Only fresh roast is ever used at our house. Perhaps it was the coffee origins, I just used what we like and had on hand green.

Thanks again.
It arrived alive, thanks. I appreciate your kind puts and I'm glad that many of you had a chance to try this novel coffeemaking method.

As for me, I smoked two Fuente Short Stories the other day, glupped down a pitcher of Kona and am trying to figure out which movie to watch first. Thanks for participating and thanks for the smokes, etc.
