Aeropress and Tirra Frothing Wand

I am getting ready for a trip and will need to say goodbye to my Anita espresso machine and Macap grinder for a couple weeks. On a rafting trip last year I brought the Aeropress manual coffee press but did not have a milk frother. So, I recently purchased the Tirra milk frother at a kitchen store going out of business sale.

Today in trying to figure out the right Aeropress grind for the coffee I am bringing on my 2 week trip, I put some milk in a mug and microwaved it for 40 seconds and then frothed it with the Tirra. Then I did a double with the Aeropress right on top of the frothed milk.

People - this was excellent!!! It is better (I'm drinking it now as I type) than 95% of the caps you buy out there in retail coffee land. I cannot say enough about how good this is. For a large majority of the cap and latte crowd this little combo with a good grinder would give them everything they need.

Wow! I am blown away. I'm sure the Pacific Bay Colombia organic "Mesa de Santos" is a big part of the equation, but, still - a press and battery powered frothing wand producing something this good puts me in a state of disbelief.
