$20 brand new (I just bought that one for my brother)....and a couple bucks in a thrift store
I get minimum grounds with the Aeropress, often none at all

any time I have had coffee made with a French Press the result was not the same

The mocha peculator is my second fav cheap and easy method but I find the french press to taste a tad better
I haven't really used a french press much, maybe I should we've got at least one laying around.

I'm very tempted to post a link to a youtube clip. Not really family friendly, though....

Maybe better if those interested just do a video search for "ozzy man reviews pamplona"

A nephew teased me that it looks like a pen!s pump.
I asked him how he would know what one looks like.
He said Austin Powers had one.
I used one...the coffee pump not the other ;-) ...I liked the coffee, very tasty...but I like the lack of plastic and/or aluminium of the press...stainless and glass. I know, granola cruncher....

Yes, that would be the biggest con with the press. Luckily, a little sludge in the bottom of my cup does not bother me...but I like German Wheat beers too...speaking of sludge at the bottom

The trick for me at first was getting the amount of coffee figured out...I settled on 1/4 cup grounds per mug of coffee..

That whopping big dam named after a brand of vacuum cleaner. Couldn't they have thought of something better to name such a huge bit of concrete after?
Like a president maybe?

My older brother makes the best campfire coffee ever with just a pot, water and grounds.
He's a much bigger coffee drinker than I am, it doesn't take much caffeine to give me the jitters.

Yeah campfire coffee can be a lot higher in caffeine that other methods. Basically, from what I understand, the longer the grounds are in contact with the water, the higher the caffeine and other undesirables that are extracted. Kinda like extracting bitterness from hops methinks...

I grind up about 20 grams of coffee beans

makes enough for a 16 oz mug after adding water to the coffee extracted from the beans

In all honesty, and humbleness, if I had to drop either eating or taking pictures... I would continue eating.
of course you would! otherwise you'd be dead in a matter of days
