    Aeropress Inverted Method in Photos - by Stumptown Roasters

    Using an AeroPress is a fast, easy and convenient way to brew excellent coffee at home. The keys to getting good results are: using high quality, fresh beans; grinding the coffee correctly; using clean equipment; using the right temperature of water; plunging correctly. You’ll need an AeroPress brewer, coffee, AeroPress filters, a grinder, a one minute countdown timer, and a mug for your coffee.

    I think it's quite clear the appeal - convenience, time, and no cleanup. A disposable K-cup makes it a tiny less bit convenient and makes a small possibility of a mess, but if that 20 seconds it takes to fill a K-cup is too much for someone, then I don't know what to say.

    French press definitely takes more than 3 minutes from boiling the water to cleanup. Also, you either have to use a plastic French press or worry about breaking glass in morning (RIP my old French press) and there's no guarantee of a consistent cup of coffee. A refillable K-cup is a very small price for mother earth - it'd take 30 seconds at most to refill a cup and stick in the machine. Then you have slightly less crappy coffee than a K-cup, convenience, and mother earth is happy.

    In my experience, the quickest good cup of coffee is Aeropress. It's similar to a French press in some ways, but the coffee brews a much shorter time thanks to the added pressure. I've found I can brew a cup in about 2-3 minutes from grind to finished brew and cleanup. Cleanup is easier than French press because of the multiple parts, just rinse each with water and place on a drying towel. Its design also allows for thicker plastic pieces than a plastic French press and there almost no cases of it cracking (like plastic French presses tend to do).

    I didn't even notice that! The color change is so subtle. I might do a custom stylesheet for Snapzu to make the new ones blue or something and keep the ones I've read grey. Thanks for the tip!

    Apple has made many hits by doing things differently and some from just making attractive and marketing in a friendly way what others have done. From a software aspect, the iPod really didn't do anything better than Creative - but from a product design and advertising aspect, the iPod won. The iPhone did have an edge of other smartphones at the time - it was the first mainstream touchscreen phone that you could actually type on (capacitive touchscreen). It's quite clear why that helped bring the category into the mainstream - after all, who cares what features a phone has if it's not responsive. The iPad was Apple re-imagining the tablet as a media device, and damn, they were right about that. There were tons of tablets before it, but none had such a limited interface (which is good for media consumption). I don't know if I'd put the MacBook Air on this list - sure it's the main ultra-portable that people think of, but it's not really used in a different way than a laptop and there were plenty of lightweight laptops before it. But it was exceedingly good quality for the category.

    With the iPad as Apple most recent ground breaking product, Apple has been playing a game of "me too" lately and the iWatch is no exception. They've kept the iPhone as a top tier quality phone, but haven't really done enough to break it apart from the pack. The iWatch wasn't first, it doesn't do anything more than the competition, and it really doesn't do anything better. And for once, it isn't even widely considered the best looking product in its category like all of the previously mentioned products were at the time of their release.

    Now maybe Apple doesn't need to be on the forefront of design to win anymore. Maybe they can be carried on their reputation alone. But when I look at the protruding camera lens on the back of the iPhone 6, something the Apple of yesteryear would never have released, I think it's the beginning of a problem for them.

    I need 9 hours a night or I'm pretty dead and make a lot of mistakes. If you do the math, it's pretty crazy how much more time someone has if they only need three or four hours. Let's just say they get 4 hours of sleep a night - that means they have 5 hours more per day than I do or more than 1800 hours a year. That's 75 days a year that they have to do stuff when I'm just lying in bed. Insane.
