Hi Dana, Scroll down on this page to the video of me pressing. https://aeropress.com/use-it-now/getting-started/. At 2:40 you'll see me rest my arm on the plunger. It's effortless. I'm letting the weight of my arm push the plunger. Alan
- previous 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.
