Going into my current 4+ month full time adventure, knowing space would be at a premium, I chose to leave the traditional coffee maker behind and have used only the Aeropress. I have not regretted it once.

I make at least one americano every morning and love the great taste and the simplicity of it all. The learning curve for using the device is short and I find it a comforting ritual to start my day.

The worst coffee at a campsite is way better than the best coffee at the office.

Carl, the beans to not have to be recently harvested, in fact I have some green Sumatran beans from 2007, but you are right about freshly roasted. I try to keep enough roasted that I don't get caught without any, but rarely have more than 2 lbs roasted at a time. Dependant upon the origin, and the roast level, 2-14 days seems to be the best window for the age of roasted beans.
Jim, I saw this post several months ago and being that my husband is a coffee snob and we will be going full-time this summer, I knew I had to find a way for him to make his coffee and not take up too much storage or counter space. I bought the Aeropress for him on Father's Day. He loved it so much that he tossed his coffee press! I am a tea drinker, but love the flavor of the Aeropress coffee. Thanks for the recommendation!

Need a little help from Aeropress experts. It would seem the stainless filter is preferred over the paper filters. I checked on Amazon and see stainless filters priced from $8 to $20. Is one better than another?

There are 2 "mesh" filters and 1 "punched" filter available. I prefer the mesh as it allows the most oils to get through. The one I have is the "S" filter, but the newer one for $8.99 looks to be identical also with a life time warranty. I love the fact these filters do not let any grounds through (good to the bottom of the cup) but allow the oils to flow through that the paper filters capture.
