Make sure you get the right grind for an aeropress (same for any coffee machine type). Not sure what it should be.

Have a read through this thread, you may well pick up a few tips.

As others say, the key is good quality, freshly roasted coffee beans, ground just prior use.smile

We are very happy with our Aeropress. Had it for about 4 years, last year we got a replacement outer part of the press & a replacement rubber gasket. 

We have the stainless Able filter in standard & fine, have been using the fine filter. 

Also have a couple of the Aero mesh filters. It's good if doing 3 or 4 cups in one go, easier to press through. It is more delicate & one of ours started to separate (photo right side, at about 2 o'clock position).

We use the Able fine filter 99% of the time. We have a spare one but the first one is still ok (photo, left side).

 

Quick tips: use top quality beans & grind them, we find ground very fine is better, but obviously more work by hand.

Pre heat cups & never use boiling water in the coffee, any coffee, even instant coffee!

If we can, we use cream, failing that we use powdered milk as our fridge is very small, not as nice but after a week you get used to it.

Use a ceramic grinder & as smaller diameter as possible, easier to hold grinding by hand. Over the years we have noticed the envious looks while in remote places, this alone is almost worth it!
