I recently discovered the Aeropress too, as part of a recommended travel setup I came across. I had a small brass Zassenhaus burr grinder I've been using for Turkish coffees for some time now, and I find that it fits perfectly into the hollow of the 'press' in the Aeropress. This makes a nice, compact kit for the road.Another thing I found for the Aeropress is a reusable stainless steel filter. I find that paper filters take out a lot of the varietal flavors I love in my homeroasts, but the steel ones let those oils through without a problem. Also, you don't have to continually throw away / replenish filters.I wonder how many coffees you'd have to make to overcome the embedded energy of the steel filter, and make it a more sustainable choice than paper filters?Anyway, great post!
