    what material is it made of? glass . . . plastic etc

    Polycarbonite.....PLASTIC!

    I ordered one from Amazon today for 26 bucks. I'll see how it works this weekend.

    I use my Aeropress every morning for a nice, dark cuppa French Roast. Follow the directions to experiment as to what works best, as this is key, just like any good coffee prep. I experimented with my microwave and heat my water to near boiling with 2 min 30 seconds on high. While this is heating I put two scoops into the AP then pour in a small amount of the water, stir the grounds and kinda "chop" the grounds, then fill it up to the very top with the heated water and squeeze it into a large cup. Then enjoy. Love it and since it uses small paper filters, you don't get the oils like a French Press, or any powdery grounds in your Joe. I'm planning to get a Jetboil for tent camping and backcountry trips to use with the Aeropress.

    Just remember not to throw out the little filter basket. It is easy to lose.

    What no oils!?

    all kidding aside,, Thanks for the help.
    I probably will be ordering the press in the morning, but I was unsuccessful in finding a discounted jet boil. Will poke around some, but might cheap out and buy a Coleman Propane Stove Single Burner for $30 but then I still need a neato-nifty pot (never end$)


    btw.....the Kelty Tarp arrived.


    Just about all set for the rally.

    OK, I'm going to get shouted down here I think but . . .
    I like a classic french press, no filters thank you.
    With a french press you should grind your beans coarsely, much less fine than say if you are going to brew in a drip maker with paper filter. I can remember the first time I used a French press and ground the beans really fine.
    Now that was chewy!
    Yes, I do get a little more sediment in the cup but it's not like I am chewing grounds.
    It gives the coffee a little "mouth feel". I prefer it to the heavily filtered drip variety.

    I think REI has a single travel French press cup, $14 iirc. No filters required.

    there's the problem right there...

    you need to order the 2 cup model...

    I like regular french press coffee too, but most any coffee trumps the instant crystals.

    To each their own and I'm not advanced enough to know anything about coffee "mouth feel" but I do like the way chocolate feels in my mouth.

    How did people ever survive at rallys, without coffee and wifi?
    19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.

    I ordered my Aeropress from Amazon Monday night and it arrived today.

    I just finished my first cup and it really tasted great!

    Can't wait to use it while camping next month!

    Shade...

    I encourage everyone to get the tarps. It is a great piece of equipment to have. I don't have one but if I see one of yours, I will come by and test it out and give you a full report on the shade factor. In addition, I will need a beer in my hand to fully appreciate your setup.
