    hmm I dunno, it appears to do the same thing as an aeropress but looks fancier and with more parts to wash. Plus the resulting coffee that came out was far too weak in the demo

    Would look great in the kitchen as opposed to an aeropress which looks like something from the 70's lol but I think I'll stick with my AP

    Ive got one. The coffee is on par with the aeropress. It doesn't take much to clean it.
    Its not the best at keeping coffee warm. I sometimes use it as a cup but other times transfer to an insulated mug.

    I can get crema with a decent coffee through the aero. Illy's works for me in that respect

    Ready Ground as I use it in work (use my Gaggia at home). I think largely it depends on water temperature and how long you keep the coffee in the press. We have these water machines in work that provide water at a really good temperature for coffee so that goes straight into the AP. I don't use the inverted method but as soon as I've put the water in, I vacuum seal it with the plunger so no coffee drips through. Leave it in for a minute or so and then slowly plunge. I don't get crema every single time but I'd say a good 70/30 in favour.


    I did get a giggle from one of the female managers when I loudly announced one day that I needed a new rubber for my plunger!

    I go through stages with coffee.
    Sometimes black, sometimes a splash of milk sometimes a latte.
    I get bored having the same old thing again and again and like to switch it up.
    Although currently off coffee whilst my BP gets under control, I was enjoying Flat Whites of late.

    Also tried the unsalted butter bullet coffee's
    In summer I love a shot of my fave coffee with snow made from frozen milk or water using the wife's ninja snow maker.
    When time permits I do this quickly then sit on the beach with the iced coffee and the dog.... bliss

    Any new coffee gadgets come along recently. My Aeropress is now showing sign of dying. I just think the rubber seals etc have worn out with use so its started occasionally leaking back past the plunger or filter sometimes moving and letting the grinds through . Still lasted me ages though.

    Must be something a bit less fugly than the press by now ;-)

    Watch the video below and have a look at the comments. Seems it's just a fancy Aeropress that is awkward to clean and it's very large.

    I think personally, I'd just stick with my Aeropress. Once I've made a coffee, I rather like taking the filter cap off the end and pushing the coffee puck out . Then I can wipe it down with a bit of kitchen roll and it's good to go again. With the oomph, I'd have to get up and walk to the office kitchen, rinse it all out and then come back. With the Aeropress, it really does just need a wipe down and then a proper clean at the end of the shift.

    Ps. anyone who needs to use the funnel that comes with an Aeropress to put the coffee in the tube is a nob lol.

    Also, a replacement rubber seal for the Aeropress is just over a fiver

    Actually if you look at more reviews there is now a v2 of the Oomph which addresses the issues you raise. The review I watched last night from some hardcore coffee fan boys website showed it was no more difficult to clean than the Aeropress and it showed a few other niggles improved from the first design, I forget what tbh. Gonna watch a load more reviews later and see what other options are about.

    It wouldn't be a matter of the just the rubber seals, the actual main body had worn too where the filter goes and there are no rubber seals on that bit. It literally just pissed coffee grinds into my drinks 10 minutes ago.

    Haha, it's worse when you do something wrong and it spurts coffee and grinds out of the top . That was user error though I think my seal is on the way out so I may consider using up the filters I have and give the oomph v2 a go. Alternatively get an Oomph and bring the aeropress home for the occasional use here when I can't be arsed to fire p the Gaggia.

    I must admit, I am certainly intrigued by the oomph, apart from the fact it does look more aesthetically pleasing than the Aeropress It'd be interesting to see how good it actually is.

    From what I have read it is not marketed as a Version 2 so everyone seems to be saying buy direct of their website (still only 29.99) because if you get off ebay
    there is no way of knowing what you get. The other feature I like is the rebrew and you can chuck it in the car as it is and drink straight from it. Tempted but still trying to see if there are any other options .... doesnt seem like there is tbh. I saw a mini hand pump nespresso style device but not sure about them things. I would like something that builds up pressure to be honest as I miss the amount of Crema I used to get in the full blown machine I used to have. Aeropress only gives a very small amount no matter what grinds I use ..

    Edit: Do you think the source water makes much difference in these things. Our tap water is the worst I've ever tasted and I've lived all over the place. Really hard and strong chlorine. :-(

    Yeah I rarely buy anything off Ebay. I'd likely buy direct from Oomph. I'll never buy anything that uses pods because I much prefer the control over how I grind my coffee and how much to use, plus I've rarely had a nespreso type coffee that tastes good to me, plus of course if ever the format of the pods is changed, the device is made redundant.

    Re. Water source. Not sure to be fair. I've found L'or Intense strength 8 gives a bit of a crema from the Aeropress.

    Ya know, I think I'll take the plunge (no pun intended) and order an Oomph in a few days or so.

    do you know what, I loved my aeropress but it's been unused since I got my nespresso.

    To top it off I love aldi capsules. the espresso ones (red) and the colombian ones (purple) and even mix them up, into a travel mug. 40% coffee, 40% hot water, 20% milk. Absolutely love it.

    I know I'm on to a winner with mine because I used to love coffee shop coffee and now it tastes rough and unrefined.

    I only use my aeropress when I go away and have to be away from my nespresso.

    Whats up with a Nespresso?

    Had bean to cup, filter, stove top etc.. over the years.
    Stovetop gives the best result, providing you do not burn it, but lately we love the Nespresso.

    It's good tasting coffee and minimum effort.
    We all make mistakes sometimes
