I have been using an Aeropress from when they first came on the market. I've tried other methods, but I've always returned to the Aeropress, not this time.
Making coffee whe Delter is quicker than the Aeropress, easier than the Aeropress and makes a better, cleaner, cup than the Aeropress
I was initially impressed but the seal failed after a few uses, turning it into a slow drip device. The manufacturer offered a new seal (good service) but I asked for a refund instead.
The aeropress is an immersion brewer, this is more like a pourover/percolation. Water passes through the coffee instead of the coffee steeping in the water - this gives more of a cleaner/lighter brew, akin to a chemex.
I am very happy with this product, and I look forward to experimenting with it.
- Made out of a more brittle plastic than aeropress. I'm concerned about breaking it when screwing on the lid. Definitely won't be throwing it in my bag.
- Rubber dosing cap is a neat addition but is prone to being dirty. Grounds stick to it, and it's always a bit gross. I've kept it with me for now (as I've not been carrying my scale), but it'll end up in my box of useless coffee dosers.
- Bit of a pain to clean. A video on the site shows you can dry out the puck and push it out with air, but it has always stuck for me (and requires rinsing half the grounds down the sink)
Generally speaking, it is good!
But there is one point, the middle part started to leak after a few times to uses. What happened?
Being a big fan of the Aeropress, I just had to give this a go after hearing that it is suppose to be an improved.
It is definitely way less fiddly to use, as it doesn't require any brewing or stirring and so the results are therefore much more consistent. My only issues with it are:
(1) the sealer on the plunger has a habit of riding up and out of place, therefore letting water through where it shouldn't. This isn't the end of the world but does often result in you having to do a couple more plunges to get all the water through the grounds.
(2) it's quite easy to burn yourself if you push down with a flat palm covering the hole where you fill the chamber with water. I believe they have now made a dosing tool that doubles as heat seal for the fill chamber, which would prevent this.
Here's a useful recipe the kind folks at Coffee Hit got for me after I didn't hear back from Delter direct.
(1) RE Grind coarseness, James is correct, finer end is the target. I'd suggest the following recipe:
1. Dose 15g coffee per 200ml water (assume 15g for below instructions)
2. Grind medium-fine (around v60 coarseness) as starting point, and adjust to taste.
3. Make sure piston is fully inserted and brew chamber flipped over, add ground coffee into coffee chamber
4. place filter into cap and rinse, then screw on over the brew chamber
5. Flip over onto cup / server, then fill to 200ml line
6. Raise piston to 50ml level, press (pre-infusion), wait 30sec for bloom
7. raise to 100ml and slowly press
8. raise to 100ml again (this time there will be some air pocket between water and piston)
9. Press once more, until you hear air coming through coffee, this is when brew is complete.
10. total time 1:30-1:45
For larger batches, just dose more coffee and refill brew chamber (i.e 25g coffee with 400ml water)
