1) From: J. Jones
I been using a Melita Filter for single cup drip everyday for the last 8 
years... wondering about how the Aeropress compares.
Comments from those who have used both?

Jeff,
I used to live on the Melita system. I have been using the Areo exclusively
for the last 2 months. I want to be able to sell them in our soon to be
retail shop. So far I love the results. I like a strong cup of Americana
with a little cream. It 's a great poor mans espresso machine. Of course I
say that with a BIG tongue in cheek. There is nothing like a shot pulled the
way it should be with great beans from a 4k to 10k espresso machine. Don't
get me wrong great shots do come from machines that cost way less. (Forgive
my rough analogies.)
Bottom line on Aero, Nice tool for fast strong coffee. Great tool for
camping/backpacking etc. I'm sure I can sell them.

I've used both and they each offer different experiences.
I find the Melita (or any drip) method produces a very good cup of  
coffee especially if you like to drink multiple cups at a time. I  
find the AP produces a much richer, fuller bodied cup that is more  
satisfying so you only need on or two cups to feel like you had  
enough coffee.

Rosemary,
So well put. Thanks for your details. When I have my big mug of Aero press
fresh roast it is the only cup I have all day. As depressing as it might
sound to fine homeroasted coffee lovers. I'm good to go. Another reason for
not having any more coffee is, I'm way too busy to come down off the ladder
lately. Ahhh, wait, if I smell fresh coffee I'm coming down maybe jumping
down.

Thanks for the responses. I think I'll have to buy one and give it a 
'shot'.
