Seems like a lot more work than my Bodum... but if they results are as good as everyone on here atleast says then it is worth it.
Ah, I now see why your Bodym is so much easier. Per your instructions, you don't add water, don't stir, and don't have to dispose of the grinds. What do you do when your old grinds reach the top of the pot?yeah I just set my grinder to my setting grind my beans dump it in and let it steep for 4 mins. Come pack... plunge it and pour my cup. While it is cooling I disassemble and clean... yeah that part blows but i don't have to fumble with discs and coffee grounds and excessive pushing... Eh... I am just oober lazy when i am half asleep in the morning
I don't know if I would do that with the Aeropress puck...you will end up with a mess when the puck falls apart.snip...instead of putting the puck in the garbage bin, put it in the fridge. It will absorb any unwanted fragrances that are swirling around the fridge...snip .
You wouldn't be related to jbc?
Constant leakage? Please explain yourself.
Super steep? It's the press that requires steeping.
Bad reviews? Certainly not on this site.
I used a french press for over twenty years, and have half a dozen of them. Not one has been used since I bought an Aeropress.
Well Jeremy, your slim chance worked, 'cause I didn't know it!!! How long does it last before you change it?? The Bride changes boxes of Baking Soda monthly.On the slim chance that there is someone else on the planet who didn't know this, after you pour yourself an espresso and knock the used puck out, instead of putting the puck in the garbage bin, put it in the fridge. It will absorb any unwanted fragrances that are swirling around the fridge (leaving more room for your favorite beer). ...snip
You mean like this:snip...It weighs around twice as much as the newer model; the Gaggia Classic. The crema that this beauty produces makes my daily espresso look like a mini version of an expertly-poured Guinness.
I have a post on this in Speakeasy. As a result of your's and others recommendations I purchased a Rancilio Rocky today.. It's on it's way Thanks!There is a price cusp somewhere around $300. If you are paying less than that, then among the options it probably doesn't matter much. Making the jump to a burr grinder in that price range will have a huge difference in your coffee (and is a must for espresso). Above that there are diminishing returns, unless you are a total nutjob about coffee, which many are.
I got a Rancilio Rocky a couple of months ago and I was blown away by the improvement in coffee, especially French Press, drip, etc. It is just so uniform that you are producing very little sludge and extracting everything perfectly. Alas, my Rocky is defective at its lowest grind settings, so I think I am going to get a Mazzer or similar high-end grinder instead.
I haven't tried the Solis, but many people like them for non-espresso preparations.
Sweet, that looks like a very nice grinder, does anyone have the Rancilio Sylvia?I have a post on this in Speakeasy. As a result of your's and others recommendations I purchased a Rancilio Rocky today.. It's on it's way Thanks!

You'll find zillions of bytes of info relative to that combination on the web. Happy reading. As an owner of both machines, I can tell you the following:Sweet, that looks like a very nice grinder, does anyone have the Rancilio Sylvia?
Thanks to everyone here, I have been looking at the Rancilio Sylvia / Rocky Combo, any thoughts?
