For years we used a French press with fresh ground beans and were pretty happy with the exception of the amount of water it takes to clean it, kind of hard on the boondocking water supply. The kids gave us a stove stop percolator for Christmas a few years ago and that became our mainstay, not great but okay coffee.
When we joined this forum back in 2013 waiting for our 5.0 TA to be built I came upon one of Jims Aeropress threads. Intrigued, I researched it on coffee geek and Amazon, there is a whole lot of love out there for the Aeropress. I asked Santa for one Christmas 2013, for our upcoming 5th wheel.
Our first nights stop on the way home was Green Lake PP. In the morning I eagerly unpackaged my brand new Aeropress that Santa gave me (with my S filter) and preceded to make the biggest mess ever, water and coffee grounds all over the place, what a piece of junk. (I never read directions) Aeropress went into storage cabinet, and percolator came back into service.
The following spring preparing for a trip up north I was cleaning up the trailer came across the aeropress and decided to give it another try, watched a couple of You tube videos and found out the importance of the having a very fine grind. We run a super automatic Magnifica machine at home and the aeropress comes very close to the quality of that coffee.
