There are no markings on the current AeroPress plunger. However many years ago, the plunger was marked. Now the number markings referred to in the instructions are on the chamber.
- previous post: I am another vote in favor of a reusable filter, taste tests notwithstanding. (Also, my cholesterol is great, so that is not a factor for me.) I love the idea of the aeropress, but I won't buy a coffee maker that requires consumable filters. I think there would be good demand for a reusable filter. If you charge a decent amount for it, and include the caveats that you are concerned about, I've no doubt that you'd get more sales. Then if people didn't like the taste, they could eat their words and buy paper. In fact, I might even buy a set of paper filters — I just don't want to be dependent on them. Wouldn't that be a win-win? Thanks for your work! – From Kimi I.
- next post: Hi Alan, I’m buying an AeroPress ‘original’ as a gift for a friend who works on a cargo ship as an electrician. The UK AeroPress website sells a 26 oz Mizu A8 bottle and claim you can press directly into the 1.5” opening at the mouth of the bottle 1) This may or may not be meant exclusively for the GO version – I don’t know if there is a diameter difference at the filter cap between the versions 2) Next, I wonder (to simplify on the on-ship brewing temperature management) -could he brew 3 scoops with room temp water, fill to the level 3 mark and press the concentrate directly into the Mizu A8 thermos according to cold water brewing instructions. And then dilute with a boiling water dispenser in the galley? Given that the thermos has a 26oz capacity, he could fill it to approximately 24 oz and be good to go? 3) personally I weigh all my dosing but is it correct to say that for a manual grinder with minimal retention that 1 rounded scoop of roasted whole beans = 1 rounded scoop of ground coffee? – From Steve L.
