How do I make a full mug of AEROPRESS coffee?

I just got an Aeropress and have been trying to figure out how to use the inverted method to make a 10-oz. mug of regular (Americano) coffee. When I use one scoop of fine-ground coffee and fill to the 3 then the 2 as recommended by Stumptown inverted method, I get about 2 oz. of coffee concentrate, which makes about 5 oz. of regular-strength coffee. But if I use two scoops of coffee and fill to the 2 and then the 1 with this method, I get about 2.5 oz. of coffee concentrate, which doesn't make a strong-tasting 10-oz. cup, either. Generally I'm using a dark roast, Sumatra or French or a blend. To make a nice, full-tasting 10-oz. cup of coffee, do I need to steep longer? Use more grounds? Grind finer or coarser? Help! My second question is, do I really need to use twice as much coffee to make a single cup compared to a French press, where I use 2-3 tbsp. coarse-ground coffee and steep for 3-4 minutes to get 10 oz. of coffee? Thank you for any help!

Some like it hot

I'm trying to improve my husband's coffee experience with a birthday gift. His number one issue is that hot drinks get cold too quickly. He also doesn't totally love having two things to clean up (french press + coffee cup). So I thought I'd get him something nifty to solve these problems. Does anyone have recommendations?

Looking for the perfect press

Coffee 101: sociology and technology

I don't drink coffee and most of my friends don't either, but I'd like to be able to offer a nice cup to occasional visitors who do drink coffee. What type of small-scale coffee maker would be a good choice: some kind of drip and filter method? French press? Should I buy a small amount of decent quality ground coffee and hope that it keeps well between coffee drinkers? (And what would be a safe, crowd-pleasing choice?) Or should I just forget offering potentially mediocre coffee and offer everyone tea and tisanes?

How to get French Press coffee without the cholesterol

My parents have decided to replace their french press due to concerns about cholesterol. Previously . I want to get them a paper filter based coffee maker that makes 4 or more cups of coffee at a time. The other constraint is that the machine has to be shorter than 14 inches so it fits under their cupboards. [more inside]

Am I ruining my drip machine?

I make my morning coffee in a French press, but then I keep it hot by pouring it into the carafe of my drip machine while it's switched on. Is this somehow going to damage my coffee maker if I don't have any water in the reservoir? I just want the hot plate to keep it warm. Relevant info: I have the Michael Graves coffee maker from Target.
