1) From: Jason Molinari
I don't have an aeropress yet, but i was wondering
where one would by replacement filters? I may be using
3-4 per day with me and coworkers, so they woulnd't
last long.

We'll get some soon. They are very inexpensive. Actually, nobody has 
asked! The supply it comes with is 1 year for most people - I can see 
your point though...

I think we're all in the honeymoon period.  I use my Aeropress and
work and reuse my filter 2-3 times.  I always dump it at the end of
the day and start fresh the next morning.  The way I drink
coffe...entirely your fault, Tom...I will probably be using up my
filters in 6 months rather than a year.  It would be nice to just add
them to my shopping cart.
Take care,

Hey now, Tom. One of your competitors is offering a onetime discount on an
extra pack of filters with an Aero purchase. I think you should undercut 'e=
by a quarter.   ;-)
Seriously, though, fact is the filters are dirt cheap. I was chatting about
this with Alan and his project lead, Alex, at the housewares show, and they
expressed incredulity that some people have said "ah, but they hook you int=
the filters" -- as if the Aerobie guys are doing a Hewlett-Packard inkjet
cartridge thing on consumers.
In fact, the inventor has encouraged people to experiment with other filter
materials. Cupcake papers is one suggestion he made.

These filters fit perfectly into the Silvia PF (58mm), so I use them 
as my demi/semi pods. No need to have to cut circles into regular filters...

Say what? How do you use them? What do you do? Why?

This has been discussed on alt.coffee quite extensively. Some of us 
espresso drinkers cut filters from regular paper filters and place 
them on top of the ground coffee in the portafilter. It's basically a 
way of cutting down the mess of grounds sticking to the shower 
screen. Until now, I have been having to cut circles on filters (baby 
wipes work well, too) to fit the Silvia and Cremina PF's. The 
aeropress filters fit the Silvia PF perfectly. However, I still need 
to cut them for the Cremina...
Google the usenet newsgroups  for past discussions for more info...
We are a funny bunch, nicht wahr?

10) From: Scott Marquardt
Ah! An obvious solution to a genuine problem (if a small one). Very cool.
Perhaps Alan would consider becoming the "small filter source," and have hi=
supplier cut up a bunch for commonly needed sizes? Why don't those of you
who do this lobby him a bit. He might be willing to take on that kind of
specialty thing.
