I wish so very much that I had learned this at the beginning of deputation! My awesome brother and sister-in-law gave me an Aero Press coffee maker for Christmas. It’s been on my Amazon wish list since I read about it on Money Saving Mom. I kinda forgot it was there. But it makes the very.best.coffee I have ever had!
I can’t tell you how many bad coffees I have had while travelling. Hotels aren’t exactly known for their great coffee, and many times it came out of a machine and tasted more like dirty dishwater. The other problem I encountered was
dirty filthy coffee makers. You know those little ones they put in the hotel room? Or even the ones in the infrequently used prophet’s chamber? So many times I opened the water container to fill it, only to find dirty water sitting there, or layers of gunk. Needless to say…I passed on coffee on those mornings!
BUT… if I had owned the Aeropress, I could have made coffee on the go by just heating water in the microwave! And it would have been delicious, and cheaper than stopping at Starbucks, and it’s easy to clean (as in, I just rinse it off!)
You can use espresso to make a latte, which is a big plus if you’re used to spending $5 for it at Starbucks! I’m hooked on just making a fresh cup of coffee when I want one. It tastes better than my drip coffee brewer, any Keurig, and even better than pour over in my opinion.
So if you’re on deputation, or you travel a lot, grab an Aeropress and save a stop at the coffee house. Your wallet AND your taste buds will thank you!
