    Yes, I fill up a standard mugs worth with water afterwards.

    Regular method, I fill to the 2.

    I typically do inverted though, fill 3/4 or more of the way.

    While I'd definitely try it if offered, I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to give it a whirl. Coffee/caffeine just isn't my thing. As I pointed out, besides not being a huge fan of brewed coffee, caffeine fucks me up some kind of funky. I *DO* have coffee in the morning though. I'm a wild man and go with half-caff. And if I get more than half of that cup in me, I'm off the fuckin' wall and get the heebie-jeebies.

    True story: after catching a red-eye flight to Cancun in May and partying the entire day, we had some coffee our friends made for us the following morning. Yeah, it was fuckin' awesome. So fuckin' awesome in fact, that I had an ENTIRE mug of it not realizing that it wasn't the half-caff I usually stoop to. I spent a few hours pacing around the condo, shaking & mumbling like Hunter S. Thompson. Couldn't even keep breakfast in me!

    Re: Aeropress/Coffee

    I've been experimenting with cold brew and a coffee sock the past couple years. I've tried longer times, shorter times, more water, less water, more grounds, less grounds, finer grounds, etc. Its always good, I'd say typically 8 out of 10. I just can't seem to get the 10/10 taste that my local (amazing) hipster coffee shop does. Is there a magic step I'm missing here? Maybe I need another brew method.

    I seem to be able to hit it out of the park with the right beans, less water, and more time. I use a 64oz mason jar and get the best results only putting in 48oz of water and 6oz (weight, not volume) of medium grounds, medium roast coffee. But at some point its costing me almost as much a cup as if I just buy it at the hipster place. A $20 bag of beans making eight 12oz cups of coffee ain't cheap at $2.50 a cup. Then again, I guess it is noticeably cheaper than the $4-5 the shop charges.
