Thanks, I will keep that in mid if I decide to pick one of those up.Yes, that's the one. I prefer plastic for travel but use them at home as well (over the ceramic version). However, I would use #4 filters, not #2. The reason for #4 filters is they are cheaper (about a penny each in bulk) and extend past the top of the filter holder giving you a little room for more water during the pour. I don't like anything that requires dumping grounds and cleaning (like the screen filters or French presses). With the Melitta, you remove the filter with the wet grounds and toss, done.
Once again, I'll post this photo of me preparing a mug of coffee. You'll see a Melitta filter holder, #4 filter, set on an Ozark Trail 20 oz mug. Water is being heated in the small kettle on a butane burner (which I use far more often than the two burner cooktop in the van).
I really do not mind using the Aeropress though.
Thanks, I should try taking a sip of the concentrate some time before adding extra H20 to the cupThe product of what comes out of an aeropress is essentially coffee concentrate. You must add hot water to it if you are trying to replicate a typical cup of drip coffee.
