Thank you for your question and yes this is me (Alan). I enjoy answering people’s questions about the AeroPress. Your suggestion to improve the look of the AeroPress is one we often hear. We just as often hear from fans on the other side who like the techy purely functional look. We consider changes like offering different colors from time to time but you need to be aware that when this is done, it adds great complexity to distribution. However, I sincerely appreciate your kind words. Feedback like yours is an aging inventor's reward.

- next post: Hi Alan, The original Aeropress came in a clear color which made determining the grounds and water fill much easier. My eyesight is terrible and I have found over the years as I have purchased newer iterations, the Aeropress has become less and less transparent making it much more difficult for me to judge how far I have filled. Can you please go back to a clear plastic combination for us old timers that can barely see as it is? Thank you! – Aaron R.
