    why do they do the aero press upside down? Weirdos.

  2. SSSasky says:

    They didn’t explain how to make the best cup at all. It was just a weird ad.

    Interesting site, i like the concept. Sadly their Fashion section is directly just for women so i’ll have to pass.

    Sadly, that was a useless video; they didn’t talk about how fine to grind, and they didn’t give any technique to using the Aeropress except to show it being used upside down from the way that Aeropress describes.

      This video is almost exactly how I make my morning coffee (including the inverted AeroPress), so I’ll give you my personal opinion. I grind as fine as my grinder will go, then add it to my inverted AP, along with water that’s about 30 seconds off the boil. I stir it and let it sit for about a minute, then invert and press.

      I have recently been experimenting with adding a bulletproof coffee component to my morning cup by including 25g of unsalted butter and 2 tablespoons of MCT oil instead of milk or cream and blending it all in a Magic Bullet blender. Mark Frauenfelder approved!

        Thank you for that link; without it, I would not have known that non-expensive coffee is full of unspecified toxins that will dull my mental edge and prevent me from being the best type a+ super executive high achiever something etc.

        The video didn’t show adding water into the coffee, but I thought the aeropress made an expresso brew that had to be watered down to make “Americano.”

    They sell “organic” products with ingredients like sodium coco-glucoside tartrate, sodium hydroxypropylsulfonate laurylglucoside crosspolymer, sodium cocoyl hydrolyzed amaranth protein, sodium cocoamphoacetate, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, lauryl glucoside, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, sodium hydroxypropylsulfonate decylglucoside crosspolymer, sodium cocoyl glutamate and sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate.

      Given that he mentions his children fairly frequently, I’m pretty sure that it’s just you.

    • NateXT says:

       I can see where you’re coming from, but appearances and mannerisms that might cause you to form an opinion about a person’s sexuality can often be misleading.

    So, this is like Peterman from Seinfeld.

    “Best cup of coffee” lost me when I saw the grinder they’re selling. Sorry, but that Cuisinart is an extremely loud mess of a grinder. Grinds unevenly and the plastic burrs wear out quickly. Spend an extra thirty bucks for a Capresso…

  11. David, she may be trying to KILL you, man. 
    A friend and I dropped unfiltered coffee (went to paper filters) and we both dropped our cholesterol considerably. I wouldn’t touch unfiltered coffee with a ten-foot pole now.
