I agree on Aeropress if you just want to make a cup or two. Great coffee and much easier cleanup

I agree with the others suggesting the Aero press, it makes a damn good cup of espresso or if you add water to it you have americano.

Another good option for a single serving of 20oz or less is the Planetary Design steel toe bru-stop french press, they are a company out of Missoula, I have been nothing but impressed with this french press.

If I need to make coffee for a large group of ppl then I usually use my Black Rifle Coffee Company french press.

Maybe I'm old fashion.."ok boomer" but it doesn't get much better than a great source of coffee and a Melita pour though. I have a #4 for small batches and a #6 for larger groups. Yes we have to do multiple batches...but that's ok. So the key in my mind is spectacular coffee. And here is my blatantly obvious plug. TRY O'HORIS!!! O'horis coffee out of Santa Fe is spectacular. Lots of locally sourced coffees. And roasted to perfection. We buy 15 lbs delivered to the house in Colorado. It's truly lovely coffee.

We use an all stainless steel french press on the river. Two of us, perfect size, perfect amount of coffee before beer time 9:00 am MST. Durable. I have tried others (plastic, glass, and plastic w/re-re-reinforced duck tape) all have failed, cracked, and most notably, failing at worst time. Stainless steel way to go, durable, never complains, cleans up easily, shiny, pretty. Prefect morning companion on the river. I also prefer flat top knobs to rounded... ...less hand hurt when pressing and stores better.

I've been using the older version from GSI for twenty years. It's been all over the world with me.

I just picked up the Aero press.
Great coffee with easy clean up!!!
I see about 5 other folks have tried the new press and all have the same favorable recommendations. There would be more positive recommendations if more folks would try the relatively new press.

Oh boy, what a good number of different recommendations. Thanks everybody. I don't know yet which one I'll buy. I'm leaning to the Aeropress, but the Melitta looks so quick & simple.

By the way, I'm not a "coffee snob", whatever that really means, and my question was for just making one cup of coffee for me.

The Stanley vacuum insulated press works great, tastes great, and stays hot! Real simple to use.
