    @ 16$ it was even more reasonable. So in the process of testing these 2 new devices I discovered that I liked the last one best of all.

    Also I noticed with the Aeropress and the glass carafe I had a dark spot of sediment in the bottom of my cup. But with the double mesh pour over filter I do not see this sediment.
    I've been doing something similar since we spent two weeks without power during Superstorm Sandy.

    I put two scoops of coffee (I like a good Sumatran or Folgers French Roast) and 16 oz of water into a pyrex pot.

    Bring it to almost boiling, just a few bubbles at the edge. Give it a stir, let it settle for about a minute and strain it through a gold mesh strainer directly into my cup - Basically I've gone back in time and am making Cowboy Coffee. We like it so much we sold our fancy combination coffee/expresso machine

    I like the strainer you're using, I might have to pick one of those up

    I have experimented with cowboy style. I heat the water with a corelle 6 cup tea pot. But it made a mess in the pot, was harder to clean.
    And really tasted no different than using the filter and a pour over.

    I have 3 different filters of that type now and prefer the one linked. My backup arrived last night.
    Always good to have a spare!
    I truly believe we need to get back to basics.

    The last month I have gone back to Aeropress. The pour over made a good cup of coffee, but I hated waiting for that last tablespoon of coffee to drip down through.

    With the Aeropress once I have all the water in, I seat the plunger and time 30-45 seconds, then press.

    Just made my first cup of coffee with a Moka Pot. Flavor is really great, but it is stronger than I am used to. Seems like a lot more fuss.

    Anyone else using a Moka Pot?

    Before I started drinking Turkish coffee I used a moka pot. I brew both over a small back pack gas camp stove. It's not for anyone who likes to put on their coffee, go do other things, and come back to a ready cup of joe. I enjoy this kind of coffee, but hey, I'm a reloader and gadget guy! If I smoked, I'd probably roll my own!

    "Real cowboys never dumped the grounds. They would just keep adding fresh coffee to the pot.

    Eventually even a 24 cup pot is going to fill up and be a 1 cup pot.

    I never could see the sense in it.

    I will say that coffee cooked on an open fire out in the boonies does have a special place in my heart. It may not be cowboy coffee but its close.
    And at the time it was mighty tasty. Watching the sun rise while a river flows by close, smelling wood smoke and tasting it in your morning cup, that's livin in my book.

    That is what a wantabee cowboy would say. Real cowboys have better sense than that. You cant store away a half pot of coffee anywhere on a horse or wagon without making a mess.

    In my case, it'd be called Indian coffee, thanks to my great Uncle who moved to AK in 1917 and him marrying into a Yupik tribe. I visited my native cousins in '97. During my visit, we went on a boat trip and camped on a small rock bar in the middle of the Aniak River during a midnight sun. My cousin Guy-Guy (his nickname) said a brown bear is less likely to mess with us in the river We setup a lean-to and had a fire all night. Coffee cooked in the can over the open fire and a fresh caught fish for breakfast. It was one of the most memorable moments of my life..."livin" indeed.

    I've been using a drip coffee maker for the last 4.5 yrs. I used an AeroPress for about as long when I only made coffee on the weekends. Now that coffee is a daily thing, the drip coffee maker is more convenient. I should dust off the AeroPress and start using it on the weekends again.

    Stove top and saucepan is how I brew coffee.

    I like the old school ways.

    That look on your face, when you shift into 6th gear, but it's not there.
