Your daily $5 latte is a thing of the economically happy past... still, if you live on your own, making coffee for one can be a pain. But if you owned the AeroPress Coffee Maker, ($30) you could be drinking a cup of high-quality caffeine in under 1 minute with minimal cleanup. Balance the AeroPress over your favorite cup, insert a filter (1 year's supply is included), scoop your desired amount of coffee grounds into the chamber, add hot water, stir 10 seconds, and then press the coffee down into the waiting mug below. Devotees compare the taste to expensive electric brewers and French presses, and you can even make espresso with the right ratio of coffee to water.
