It looks like something from high-school science class, but in reality it is an insanely easy, effective way to make great coffee fast. I have a bodum French press at home that I've had for probably 10 years, but at the office where such things are bureaucratically disallowed, I use the AeroPress to make my daily brew. 4 bucks for a crappy, burnt urn of "Starbucks" from the cafeteria just doesn't cut it sometimes.
I've been meaning to put up a best of Yosemite post soon, and I will. All 7 of our readers will just have to be patient.
