    Are you going to keep flogging your aeropress every time someone says they use something else?

    lol what are you talking about? I am just asking questions bro because I actually am not sure... Literally I am probably gonna do the cold brew idea next round up. Also thinking about doing the Greek coffee... I like pretty much all of the ideas, nothing wrong with asking some questions about how their processes work, that's why this thread is here bro

    No joke there is such a real opportunity to make a living in the coffee industry that doesn't involve being a barista nowadays. If there was anyway I could work in the industry part time... there would be no question. I just can't convince myself to go full on into it!

    Right?

    Things I'll quit before coffee: skiing, sex, life.

    If you can't stand the Via instant, they make mocha and latte versions of it as well I believe, or you can get those cofeemate squirt bottles that have a bunch of flavors. A little original flavor cofeemate + a dash of last night's whiskey is a fine backcountry breakfast.

    Uwajimaya has some great Vietnamese canned coffees. I typically pick up a few before long trips. The cans are heavy though

    French press addon sounds like a real treat! thought i saw something like that at rei a while back but was skeptical, forgot about it and never read up on it. Apparently I was dead wrong, shoot... Honestly crazy how many different sick options there are and variety, gonna be hard to choose which I wanna try first honestly!

    There is White Tea too. Not processed at all. Just dried leaves.
    Snow Leopard (Bai Mu Dan) from Peets (Mighty Leaf Tea) full of Catechins/Flavinoids

    Tastes the same.

    Let's compare. The following cancel each other out:

    - boiling water
    - pouring water into whatever you're brewing with
    - disposing of grounds and filter

    For Aeropress, I see a few added steps/considerations:

    - plunge/pull
    - clean off plunger (or do it at home later)
    - perhaps slightly more important to get everything situated on a sturdy base
    - screw/unscrew the filter cap
    - more pieces to pack/unpack
    - Not readily clipped to outside of a pack

    All this is really splitting hairs though. If the extra incremental effort involved in aeropress vs melitta is a deal-breaker for anyone, they have bigger issues. Personal preference, but the assessment stands that melitta is marginally less hassle vs aeropress. I have both and like both. I use a Hario V60 at home for my daily driver even though I think Aeropress tastes a bit better. Extra setup/cleaning with aeropress is the reason. I want to get up and get to work in as little time possible. Hario saves me like a minute on average. I love that minute.

    I like the V60, but have switched to the clever coffee dripper at home now that I have a 1 yr old and it's worth not standing over the grounds with a kettle of hot water for the few minutes it takes to brew.

    Give matcha powder a try. Much more robust flavor and a lot more antioxidants since you're consuming the whole plant instead of just the water soluble compounds.

    So after reading this thread I ordered an aeropress from Amazon to try out and I am enjoying my first mug of coffee from it. Pretty neat gadget for $35. A little heavier than I figured it would be but a lot lighter and smaller than our double walled stainless french press and one heck of a lot easier to clean which is really important when camping. Coffee tastes the same to me as from our french press which is to say 1000% better than via's.

    Sweet. Thanks for the quick review. I'm about to order one for a month long car camping trip and a french press seemed like a pita.

    Also, in the bc you guys don't have a barista sherpa around an espresso machine? Fucking peasants.

    Is Aeropress insulated?

    Aeropress are not insulated. I probably only let the grounds soak for a mine before plunging. One tip I just learned is the use the upside method https://www.google.com/amp/s/ineedco...-tutorial/amp/

    ^Good link for us jongs. I had the leakdown issue but it didn't seem to effect flavor. I didn't wet the filter. Oops.

    Yeah I read one minute soak and then I kept half the water on the stove anyway to add after the press so it came out nice and hot. Really simple.

    Drip is still my daily driver at home because lazy.

    Let us know how it turns out as well!

    Ya I know I really am just an absolute loser, that's why I am considering just doing the heavy lifting myself and pulling an espresso machine up by myself when I do the JMT this summer don't wanna be left out from the people with their sherpas lol

    Get the stainless steel filters (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...g&gclsrc=aw.ds). They're cheap, infinitely reusable, and IMO the coffee tastes better since the paper doesn't absorb the oils. You can also use very fine grounds which further speeds up brewing. Add water, stir for 15-30 seconds, press, done.

    Not insulated, but not needed. Brewing takes 60 seconds max vs. 4 minutes with a french press so there isn't time for significant heat loss.
