Wanna know what didn't change? My love of coffee. And one of the things the guys would go on and on about was the aeropress. As much as I like coffee, I'm not that much of a coffee snob and will drink pretty much anything made from any vessel. I was using a French press and that worked fine except for disposal of the coffee grinds which was a bit messy. The aero press fixes this. When you're done with the making part, the cleanup is much easier as you just use the plunger to pop the grounds right into the trash. This is much less messy and now this is my coffee maker of choice.
