Aeropress metal discs?

Postby Jason Haeger on Wed May 30, 2007 7:18 pm

If I remember correctly, there were a couple of people who said they were working on bringing them to the market.

I've said before that I'm just waiting for these discs to become available before buying an Aeropress.

Did anything ever happen with this? Was it left on the shelf and forgotten?

Anybody using the Aeropress in their shops?

I'd think it would be a pretty cool idea... if the proper equipment were available.

So, back to those metal filters. How about 'em?

I recall a lot of "plans" to make them readily available, but nothing ever happened, or I'm just way out of the loop.

Any news?

Steve Leighton at HasBean and a few of the guys on TMC have been cutting up gold filters for use in the Aerobie, but that is all I have heard of here in the UK.

I must have missed this thread. I've had amazing results w/ my Aeropress using an old Rancilio group screen. The one used on the hydraulic machines w/ no hole in the centre, it fits perfect in the tube. Play around a little w/ the grind, time and temp to suit your style and away you go..

I wouldn't give mr. capp any of my money, but that's the part you will need, about 7-15$
good luck.

Thank you Geir.

I'll look into it when I come back from the SCRBC.
