Coffee lover? Take note of this amazing prep method that blows me away with its taste, speed, and awesome ability to make a single cup. After tossing in a filter, grounds, & then hot water into the lower chamber of the AeroPress, you put the top plunger in and then press down slowly, which uses air to push the water through the grounds and then through the filter into your cup. Since the water doesn't soak in the coffee long, it is void of most bitterness, and you pretty much end up with espresso. Phenomenally awesome. ~$30
