I've never seen any shape other than a cylinder. We call it a "puck". It's flat on the top and the bottom.
- previous post: I've had an aero press for years and love it. However, I find that the inner cylinder sticks a bit. It is sometimes very difficult to eject the little coffee puck of grounds to clean it after use. Any suggestions to make it work a little more smoothly? – From Barbara D.
- next post: Hi Alan, I love the Aeropress which I have just bought, it's great. The only downside I have, is that I use a large cup shaped mug for my coffee. It takes about 2 normal mugs of coffee. I also have the same pattern in a smaller size which takes 1 mug. The problem is that the base of the aero press is NOT WIDE/BIG ENOUGH to sit on top of these cups. So I have to make my coffee in a normal mug & then transfer to my cups. Do you have a larger support base for the Areopress? or maybe it might be a good idea to make one OR one that could slip over the original? – From Adam A.
