For the price, it's a low-risk proposition. But it doesn't seem to review very well elsewhere on Amazon.

This might be a case of "It was a great idea; it just didn't work."

I see a lot of poor reviews and one review from someone who is way to knowledgeable to not be a shill.

I'm no engineer, but I didn't love the reviews. Hmm. I really like the idea if it worked.

That little filter basket is a PITA to rinse out and clean compared to a flat filter screen.
It's what I didn't like about the K-cup re-useable screen thingy.

I found it a lot easier to just throw the Keurig rig out. Not a solution for everyone.

Keurig is nice if someone else is taking care of it. I like the Braun that I have now, which uses cone filters that seem to work better, and it keeps the coffee hot once it's made.

Just get a big, high quality thermos. Make your good coffee in the morning and you can have hot coffee any time you want.

I only need or want one good hot cup in the morning. My issue is coffee that isn't hot enough right after it's made.. that keeps me from using the Chemex or phin.

The more I read about Aeropress the less sure I am... first world problem, I know. It'll be hard to move on from French press after so many years... I do love espresso so I'm going to see if that works for me.

You can always use it as a bowling pin if it doesn't work out.

How hot do you need coffee...? You have to drink it at some point, right?

I like that idea... I wonder if there could be drawbacks to that method? I have a cover for my mug already (to keep heat in while brewing). I would want a plunger but maybe a small cup would do it. Interesting!

I like drinking water that is really hot and actually stopped that practice when that study was made public. I don't want my coffee abnormally hot...
