Anyone tried the American Press?

I am looking for something I can use at the office that makes great coffee without a ton of mess. I have an AeroPress but I am looking for more volume. This guy looks like it might fit the bill since the grounds are contained in a pod. Problem is, it's pretty expensive so I would like to hear from some other before I pull the trigger. Thanks.

It works pretty well, but I would suggest the Bobble Presse. It is my go-to travel coffee maker.

How much more volume do you need? For larger batches have you tried bypass brewing? Aka brewing a stronger batch and diluting it down to the desired strength?

Yeah, it's kinda like the Espro Travel Press.

I use my Presse's every day, fill in the morning from my pot and grind and brew every afternoon at work. It's so well insulated that you can brew from the hot water tap of a water cooler.

I like the grind from my Lido 2 better but I've been using an Aergrind at work which is compact and easy to grind with.
