Received my AeroPress today Dennis :).So naturally, just had to try it out ::).....
It really is a well designed, nicely manufactured bit of kit and simplicity itself to set up and use. Anyway, cutting to the chase..... The quality of the brews produced are simply superb. Great clarity and very nicely balanced, no bitterness at all, plenty of body and a beautiful lingering finish that is still there after nearly an hour since finishing the cup.
I made two drinks, one as a Flat White and the other just as it came straight out of the AeroPress, no water and no milk. Both drinks were great and very more-ish with the straight brew being very reminiscent of an excellent espresso pour but without the crema and probably not as acidic either. In all respects though, I am very satisfied with the quality of the brew that this little gizmo produces. Whoda thought that a bloke who invented the Hobie Cat sail-boat could turn his hand to something like this, just goes to show.
Very happy Dennis and especially so knowing that you are also supporting the CS "Fair Crack" with a percentage of the proceeds. Absolutely excellent mate.... 8-)
