The Aerobie Aeropress Coffee and Espresso maker is my coffee making apparatus of choice! No electricity, just boil water
, stir the grounds for ten seconds, press with just a little muscle and wha-la wonderful coffee with all the oils and none of the acid! AeroPress® | AEROBIE® High Performance Sport Toys
The disc filters are cheap
and one pack will last you a year if you drink just one or two cups of coffee a day, you can reuse each one a few times before tossing it.
I got it because I found juggling the grounds and trying to keep them from going down the drain with a french press a pain...with this aeropress you just depress the thing like a syringe and then filter and grounds are squeegyed away effortlessly, just rinse and your are finished.
One trick is to not let the water
you are using come to a complete boil...the perfect temp is like 176 for this brewer which is a little less than a typical coffee pot...I just rescue
the tea kettle from the stove before it boils by about a minute or two.
I sold my coffee pot on craigslist and now just use the aeropress at home and the boat.
You can make up to 4 cups of espresso at once and add 4 cups of water to that for 8 cups of Americana (regular old coffee). You would just need to have a pot or maybe a thermos on board to hold that much.
When we finally go cruising for passages I think I am just going to get a good insulated thermos and do that when I need coffee but don't have the time or energy to make it or it is too rough.
Now, I need to research
the grinders since these burr grinders sound very interesting!!!
