Or does it? I got an Aeropress yesterday and am already won over. Brought it to work today, and after my first cup, realized I needed some sort of combination caddy/drying rack, thinking,
Since I'm here, you can guess what the result of my Googling was.
This seems like the simplest thing in the world. I have an Aeropress in my office, but I have to get all the parts to the kitchen. They're kind of hard to put together dry. Once I make coffee, I have to get them back, and I have to let them dry. Seems like with some sort of hanging rack, I could do both.
These are the parts
(though I haven't been using the funnel). This is the drop-dead simple thing
I came up with that would do exactly what I need. (Filters would go under the funnel, which won't get wet.)
My first thought was to make it out of an acrylic enclosure or storage bin like this
, drilling holes in one side and using the other as the base. But who knows if that will stand upright, and I'd rather it didn't have sides that I would need to cut off.
I could make one out of sheet aluminum (access to a drill press, hole saw, and a bending brake), but, well... I'd rather not. It doesn't have to be super-sturdy; it just needs to hold a couple plastic cylinders securely enough for a 30-foot walk to the kitchen and look not-like-crap on the shelf in my office.
Next step is to wander the the restaurant supply place or craft store (not Hobby Lobby) aimlessly, looking for something to repurpose.
What am I missing?
