The only thing about my French Press I didn't care for was cleaning it out. Made great coffee. Then got home from a trip and discovered the glass broke. Could not find a replacement glass no where. I insist on using the same big white coffee cup Clint Eastwood used in the movie, Gran Torino. Got it at WalMart. This is a serious coffee cup, I am certain rbryan will agree.

Ended up at Ace Hardware, switched to my glass Melita pot with #6 filters, have never looked back.

PS: WalMart has since dropped Clint's cup and changed the styling. Not nice.

Had a press, hated cleaning it. Now when I boondock I just pour boiling water through my regular drip coffeemaker into the thermal carafe and toss the filter. Same as with a Melitta.........

Well of course I'd agree. Anything that Clint Eastwood used in any movie automatically kicks ass.

I just added the "S Filter" by Kaffeologie to my Aero Press. It made a great cup of coffee even better. Unlike most of the permanent "gold filters" this one is not a plate of SS with a bunch of holes in it. Instead, this is a very fine wire mesh. (they claim 100,000 holes per square inch. Some claim that I am "obsessive" about my coffee, but then I tow an Escape, so I guess I am obsessive about things! The S filter also comes with a lifetime guarantee. Try it - I think you'll agree that it improves the taste over the paper filter and the cleanup is simple.

I haven't tried the S Filter, but it does look interesting. I use the Able disk in my Aeropresses. It is made from a thin sheet of stainless steel. The very minute amount of solids really does not affect the taste, and I love the brighter cup it produces, over that from the paper filters.

I did do a bit of playing last summer, and pulled out the paper filters to do some comparing. With an Ethiopian roast, which are generally one of the brighter coffees, the paper did tone down the brightness some, and was not too bad at all, as it did allow other flavours to come through better. But with the Sumatran I had with me, which generally has a more earthy flavour, I much preferred the added brightness that the metal filter allowed, due to allowing the oils to come through.
