Does it really make it easier to use the Aeropress?
Kaylie K Staff on Dec 9, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, it does make it easier to press your Aeropress! The wooden handle helps to not only properly center the Aeropress into the nook for the Aeropress to rest against (back wall), but it smoothly helps to plunge and push out the coffee. However, I noted that you'll want to make sure that you press it slowly like you would a french press or the Aeropress alone, so that you don't have too much motion on the water/grounds to make some grounds escape past the filter and into your coffee. Also, your arm won't get a workout like just using the Aeropress alone, but it's more stable!

Can this be used with cups of any size?
A shopper on Jan 19, 2016
Best Answer: I use a 12 oz. Bodum cup (get this one--it keeps the coffee hot)...it works also with a Bodum 6 oz. glass which is 3.5 in. tall...as long as the AeroPress fits into the cup diameter it should work...only limitation would be height of cup used, about 3.5 in. tall up to approx. 5 in. tall...hope this helps

We are new to the Aeropress and loved it immediately. Though 'pressing' was a bit awkward for me as I'm not tall enough to have great leverage when it's on the kitchen counter AND I didn't love the idea of not having a 'station' for all the aeropress parts to live and be easily accessible. I found the Spressa Mezzo and took a chance that it would actually provide some utility and not be a wasteful gadget and to my relief it is perfectly useful for pressing and has become a 'fixture' manual appliance on our countertop.

I suspected my husband who was happily using the aeropress would bypass the Spressa but he surprised us both by preferring to use it. Great storage for accessories, nice on the counter & easy to use and clean. Well-made, environmentally friendly and the perfect match of utility and simplicity in design.

One thing to note is that if you prefer to make a larger cup or take a travel mug in the morning, the spressa isn't really designed for a tall cup - a standard 8 0z or smaller coffee cup will fit best.

In our minds combined with a separate milk frother and the Aeropress of course - this is an energy efficient, space-efficient, low cost, home espresso 'machine' - and our guests seem to really enjoy watching the process and drinking their delicious cup. (Posted on 2/23/2015)
