    Ooooh. That looks cool.

    Definitely interested to hear back once you've tried it.

    Simon no longer owes me anything, Dave does though.
    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...

    Too late anyway. Even if it is shit I'm going to say it's awesome.

    Floyd pretty much covered the costs anyway.

    Had a go last night , crema takes some work, and very specific amounts . You do get a better palate out of it though generally. I did a side by side with the paper filter and itís a nicer brew. Will dick about further over the weekend.

    You donít have to brew inverted either.

    Mine arrived this morning.

    Review to follow......

    Edit:

    Ok. So I've made two brews so far. The first was for a latte earlier which would have been nice anyway. The second was for an americano which I'm drinking now. Whilst the aeropress is my proven favourite for a 'coffee at home' device, I'm no coffee connoisseur so I'm not sure yet if I can taste any difference but, I will say that it is better than a paper filter process wise. I've not been able to produce a crema as yet. Steve - is there a nack to it do you know?

    It's still easy to clean anyway but I find the paper one is easier to pop the puck into the bin afterwards - 9 times out of 10 it comes off in one go. I've tended to have half of it on the syringe bit and the rest on the metal filter, in the device, with the prismo. Easily rinsed off, regardless.

    Like Steve has highlighted, it's easier than having it sat upside down in the inverted mode too. Normal method - Fill, stir, leave to brew and press. There is no pre-press seepage or leakage down the mug/cup when pressing with the standard filter. Which pleases me.

    20g coffee (level with bottom of press ) , 50g of boiling water dribbled in ( fill to just under the (1) , 20sec stir and a hard press works for an espresso with a faux crema. I had to stop as Iíd made 8 this morning and was feeling a bit funny...

    * No, no, no, no, NO!

    Do NOT use boiling water. Burns the coffee. Allow to cool once the kettle has clicked off. Target 92-94C

    Jura #2 still works. Press still works with the pressure cap and is reinstated into the camping gear.

    All good here :)

    Interesting. Thanks Findlay, I wasn't aware of that.

    Though I never used fully-boiled water, but that was down to personal preference.
    I used to love my coffee, but I was far from a connoisseur! I used to favour Nescafe Gold Blend
    (no milk, 1 sugar), and would never start my day without it. But I was drinking too much of it (around 6 - 8 per day), so around 4 years ago, I woke up one morning and thought 'no thanks'!
    I haven't touched a drop of coffee since...

    That's probably not what you want to hear Findlay.
