I am not sure of the power needs but before Starbucks bought the Clover company they cost around $11,000. We have a coffee shop near where we live that has one and it makes a smooth cup of coffee! That is when I bought my first Aeropress.

What about dispos'in coffee? I wouldn't think about putting it down the grey tank, but can it be flushed into the black tank? What to do with coffee grinds?

I'd never put grounds in either tank. I've an old 3# coffee can I line with a plastic trash liner and dump coffee grounds and other moist things.

One of the things I like about the aero press is the ease of disposing of grounds. When done pressing a cuppa, take unscrew the filter end, push on the plunger, and the little puck of compressed grounds pops right out. Into the garbage, or fire pit, or where ever works for you.

Before we started using the aero press this year we were using a french press. Disposing of the grounds from it was relatively difficult, and used a fair bit of water to rinse the carafe out.

Coffee grounds are the perfect compost. Worms love it.

True. We amend the soil in our raised beds with coffee grounds.

I understand certain acid loving plants thrive on coffee and tea grounds.

I thought that the Areopress only made one cup of coffee at a time. Are you repeatedly making cup after cup to fill your carafe? If not could you please share your method?

We use a cone drip with #4 filter. Makes 2.5 cups equal in quality to the fancy French Press we use at home. The weakness of the Kerug (and Areopress?) type coffee makers is the coffee may have been sitting, ground, on the shelf for weeks before use. Fresh is best! Also, the drip method allows for simple disposal of the grounds by dumping them in the trash.
