Hello,

I love coffee and have been trying different varieties for years. I am thinking of trying home roasting, but have not taken that leap yet! I am a busy mom of 5.

I have the Saeco Incanto RS and I am not too pleased with it... :-( I will post a question about it in the other topic area. I make my best coffee using the Aeropress. I love it!! Current favorite bean is Sulawesi.

Regards,
Alicia

Mom of 5! My goodness, you do need the coffee! Yes, I LOVE the Aeropress too (I have 3 more left - if there are any Victoria area or Vancouver Island residents that want a freebie)

Looking forward to your postings.

Thanks for your welcome, Colin!

Yes, coffee helps. My two eldest boys are now in college, but still home for the summer. It will be quieter here soon, but I do enjoy the commotion.

We are in California. I have wanted to take a trip to BC sometime. A friend's son is studying physics at UBC. Can't remember if the university is in/near Victoria.

Regards,
Alicia

BTW, We live right near Stanford where the inventor of the Aeropress works. It is funny that not many people around here know about it, but I have found that I can make 2 good and quick coffees for my husband and me and I am thinking about putting away my autodrip pot.

UBC is in Vancouver - about 35km away -
Yes. I know where Stanford is - And Alan Adler, the inventor of the Aeropress popped into town about 2 years ago -- and MADE ME COFFEE! Ahahahahaha!
Brought his beautiful wife and grand-daughter with him - we all went out for dinner... and ice cream.

Alan has to be, without question, the coolest man in the coffee World! He is a 60-something dude with the inquisitive nature of a 10 year old Albert Einstein with a chemistry set.

Very cool dude.

Yup - you have to love the ease of the Aeropress.
