I'm primarily a tea drinker. However, I do enjoy coffee too. While I am not very picky about the source of my coffee (I drink decaf and I usually use Gevalia or Starbucks), I have had to work on a way to make it for myself.

Since I drink a maximum of a cup a day, the large percolator my wife uses is not ideal. Smaller coffee makers just don't heat up the water enough or something, and the coffee is usually not up to par from the single-cup makers. We had a Keurig, but I hated the waste and the coffee. A few years ago, I bought the Aeropress and liked that, but it wore out and I was not comfortable brewing anything in plastic, so I didn't buy another one. I then had a Capresso espresso maker, but we moved to a smaller place and I don't have the counter space for it anymore. So I bought another highly-rated single-cup brewer and it was okay, but not great.

So I decided to go back to a simple stove-top moka pot from Bialetti:

It makes a nice cup of coffee and the single-cup size is just the right amount for me. It seems to be sturdy and should work fine for my tastes.

Price is so high. I need to buy a low cost product. I can buy a new Coffee Roaster Machine from Kafgar. https://kafgarglobal.com/

That doesn't mean that I can't make some improvements to my current setup. Today I ordered a couple things to do just that.

Able Fine Disk metal filter for AeroPress

The stainless steel filter will allow me to keep more of the oils from the beans. I already have a burr grinder, but it's electric and makes a lot of noise which isn't the best thing early in the morning when I'd like the kiddos to stay asleep. I'm looking forward to having my first manual grinder.

How well do the metal filters work on the Aeropress? One of the most appealing things of the Aeropress, besides the coffee being excellent, is how simple it is to clean. I still remember trying to remove the grinds from the filter of a French press.

The metal filters work pretty good. They definitely allow more of the oils into the cup which affects taste. They are a bit sloppier to clean up and I’ve honestly gone back to the regular paper filters as they work great and are the quickest & easiest to clean up.
