And I thought I was done experimenting with coffee! One more to try - thankfully the Aeropress isn't too expensive.

I might need a second mortgage for the Otto!

I use the GSI Collapsible coffee dripper, it's lightweight, it collapses and works perfectly. You can get it at amazon for $13. Here is a link: GSI Outdoors Collapsible Java Drip

It makes amazing coffee. I use a Chemex at home, the Aeropress when camping. I am beginning to prefer the Aeropress.

We take our Chambord French press (I've had it for 30 years, since I worked in a coffee house in Berkeley), a Bialetti-type stainless espresso pot and the Chemex. It's nice to see there are other coffee-obsessives out there. Thanks for explaining the differences in filtering between Melitta and Chemex, that's interesting. We just try to have the best, fresh roasted and ground coffee we can find which goes a long way to ensure a good cup...

Nice. I've been a Chemex user for years. Great choice.

Chemex ought to repackage their simple, wonderful coffee maker with a trendy European name and they'd have a whole new and loyal customer base.

The name is already European.

The Chemex was invented by the German chemist Peter Schlumbohm in1941 (living in New York). It's a fascinating story - the Chemex is made from glass, wood and leather because these weren't restricted for the war effort.

Probably the single most important ingredient for a good cup of coffee.

After living in the New Orleans area for thirty-two years, I'm still trying to figure out why New Orleanians like coffee with chicory! All the bitterness of battery acid, an oily texture that clings to the teeth like paint, and an aftertaste that lasts a week. How can anything that smells so delicious taste so horrible?!

Kind of makes me wonder what a good cup of coffee actually tastes like! Maybe some day I'll get to find out.

Have you tried the "inverted" aeropress method? brewmethods.com under Marie Hagemeister 2010 Champion.

I love New Orleans style cafe au lait - without the milk it does grow hair on your chest!

I never even heard of the Aeropress before reading this thread, but after looking into it, I think I'll be buying one.

And New Orleans style without the milk won't just grow hair on your chest, it'll grow hair on your Airstream!

As we are not avid coffee drinkers but enjoy a cup of something warm while camping isn't one of the Keurig's capable of making coffee, tea or cocoa. And do any of them have a permanent filter. I'm sure the Pinterest fans of the world can make something out of the little plastic cups.
