You might remember Aerobie as the company which made those ring frisbees back in the eighties. To update you a little, an Aerobie still holds the Guinness world record for “longest throw of an object without any velocity-aiding feature” – over 406 metres with 30 seconds airtime.
I bought an Aeropress for my Dad for his birthday back in May. We’ve now been using it for about 3 months as our main coffee making paraphernalia. It produces noticably better coffee than our previous machine – a $20 drip brew coffee maker.
I won’t review it too much, there are multiple in depth reports out there on the internet already.
I’d describe the taste as very smooth – not bitter like some coffee can be – and the best feature is how quick and easy it is to use and clean.
