2) From: Barry Luterman
Aeropress is my first choice for travel. Clean up is a breeze Water does not 
need to be as hot as a FP so I can use the coffee pot in the room. Coffee is 
cleaner tasting than a FP

I'm heading out tomorrow and have the AeroPress almost ready to go  
(just have to make a quick cupa before I leave).  I was planning on  
taking a Bodum C mill along, but then Tom said he just grinds and  
takes it in a jar if he is only going to be gone for a few days.  So  
I decided if its good enough for Tom, its good enough for me.  I'll  
be off the list until next Tuesday.  Graduating class is having their  
60th reunion - where does the time go?  I'll let you know how I and  
the jar make out when I get back.  I have IVM, rested for two days  
and roasted to between C+ and FC - ground midway between drip and  
expresso and the jar is sealed tightly.  My husband says the whole  
house smells like coffee - the grinding brought him out of his office  
because of the smell.  And he is a tea drinker!  He said it smelled  
wonderful.  Maybe there's hope for him yet.

AP and a Zass! I use mine every day and I have taken it and used it all
over the world! 
Simply the best for travel I have found!

I travel with the AP and a Trosser hand mill, but any mill would be ok with
an AP.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Next trip put the little vac bags in the mini fridge, freezer even better.
If freezer they'll be virtually as good at the end as the beginning.

I've done FP & Zass, hotel coffee pots and whirly grinders, prepackaged
(portioned) pre-ground (vac sealed) homeroast and FP and it is all better
than anything you get in a hotel on the road.  But the best travel coffee I
had was last year on a 33 day cruise when I vac sealed enough packages (each
about a 5 day supply) of hpmeroast, ground with a vintage Zass, and pressed
with an Aeropress.  I heated water with one of those little plug in coils
that you stick in your cup.  Yes, towards the end of the cruise the coffee
wasn't as good as the fresh stuff at the beginning of the cruise, but my
stale homeroast is still better than Holland America's stale coffee that
they have allowed to "age" in a storeroom down in the bowels of the ship
since Christ was a Midshipman.  Find room in your luggage for a Zass and
Aeropress - you won't be sorry.

Not at all.  The paper is tasteless and much finer-grained (not at  
all pulpy). and the water is forced through the coffee grounds and  
filter by air, not allowed to sit  in contact with the paper for as  
long as a minute or two while gravity does its thing.  When people  
talk about the AP producing a "clean cup," they aren't kidding.
