I recently purchased an Aeropress based on a recommendation from my wife's cousin. I was skeptical at first, but then I noticed it's BPA-free and Made-In-USA, so I purchased one.
Wow, I'm glad I did, as it makes a really good cup of coffee. Of course you should be using nothing by Peet's beans.
Strong, flavorful but not bitter, very deep tasting, very rich. I absolutely love it. I use 3 heaping scoops of Peet's coffee ground to an espresso grind, then I slowly pour 200 degree water in up to the "#3" line --- stir for 15 seconds, and slowly press keeping constant pressure so the plunger doesn't go down for 10 seconds, then push a little harder so the plunger starts to go down, stop when you hit the grounds in the tube.
Add some more hot water to the cup, to make it a full mug, add a little 2% milk -- that's it. What Fantastic cup of coffee!
I'm so glad I purchased this Aeropress, it's absolutely amazing!

I have been using the AeroPress for two years. It makes the best cup of coffee, as it solves the flaws of other brewing methods. The result is the is the cleanest and most flavorful cup of coffee without being bitter. It makes every coffee taste better. It also makes great iced coffee! I love this device and but it for friends.
I suggest getting a 20oz thermos. I pour the concentrate from four "cups" into the the thermos and fill with hot water to make perfect coffee every morning.
