Topic: Need Help with Aeropress - Help! (9 msgs / 197 lines)
1) From: arol Lugg
I am here in Las Vegas, to see the Professional Bull Riding Finals.  We are
staying at a hotel here, and before we left, I roasted and ground some of my
favorite beans, and brought my trusty Aeropress w/ me.  This morning, when I
got up, looking forward to an awesome cup of coffee, and when I put the hot
water in, before I could even pick up the stirrer, all the water had run
through!  Has anyone ever had this happen to them before?  Help!  I need my
morning, afternoon and evening and anything in between coffee!  I'm even
struggling to type this email, for lack of caffeine and fantastic coffee
flavor!  We are celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary, and I can get
a "little" cranky when I don't have my coffee.  This can strain a getaway
time, so I would really like to know if anyone else has experienced this, a=
nd
if there is a fix for it, besides going to Starbucks and buying a French
Press!  Thank you for saving my marriage!

Blessings,
Carol

I'm assuming that you had a filter in it.
You could use the inverted method... That would allow the grounds to 
expand somewhat before the water contacts the filter...

Carol,
The only time I have ever had that happen to me was the time I forgot to put
the filter in. Oh yeah, and one other time I had the filter folded back by
mistake on one side. I guess it could about all run through if the grind is
too coarse. That is about the only things I know of that would cause your
problem. Use a new filter and try it again is the best advice I have.

It sounds like one of two things are happening.  First something may be
stuck in the grove where the endcap screws into so take a look .  Secondly
the filter disk isn't covering the holes in the end cap.  If it's missing
you can make one from a regular paper coffee filter and some scissors.

This sometimes happens to me if the filter slips off-center while I'm  
stirring the grounds.

I don't mean to ask a stupid question...but you used a paper filter right? =
The paper drips a little...but even with a little coffee...the water won't =
just flow through the paper.
So the questions are: what filter are you using? Is it screwed on tight? Wh=
at grind are you using? Is there a crack in the body?

Carol when this happens to me it's always that the paper filter has
moved out of position as I screwed the "lid" down.
If you notice the lid offers a bit of extra resistance to screwing
into position it's usually because the paper filter is askew, which
also exposes a few holes in the lid.

I usually wet the filter before putting the lid on - and I don't  
screw the lid down, I screw it UP.
(hm, that didn't come out right  :)
What I meant to say is that I hold the lid such that the filter  
doesn't fall out of the lid, and screw it onto the bottom of the AP  
cylinder.

Allon I'll humor you with an explanation even though you seem a
literalist who might enjoy picking nits as sport:
My comment was made within the context of using AP in the inverted mode.
