Watch the video below to see why the JavaJug has become an indispensable part of my daily Aeropress brew.
Show notes and updates:
To prevent bias, I recorded and launched the video without first passing it by the makers of the JavaJug. After watching it they gave the following valuable feedback to enlighten us all.
- Regarding the permanence of the logo and fill lines – confirmed they are permanently laser etched and not just painted/printed.
- From the maker: “Just as a test, I put the logo part of the Jug on the flame of our gas stove and heated it up quite hot. Then I tried to scrape off the logo but nothing happened. It can’t come off.”
- Why the various fill lines?
- From the maker: “Another question we sometimes get is “why are there two sets of line marks inside the jug?” The lines with the numbers are for 8 ounce cups, which is most common in North America. The other set of lines without numbers are gradated for 5 ounce cups, which are sometimes used in Europe and other parts of the world. You might have noticed that older drip coffeemakers have ‘cup’ markings that seem too small and don’t relate to a regular cup of coffee. After investigating, we discovered they are gradated for 5 ounce cups ( also called demitasse?) So, to appeal to the global market we also added the 5 ounce lines.”
- And to add to the global confusion, Japanese coffee manufacturers often measure a “cup” of coffee as only 4 ounces! As a fellow Asian, I can’t agree …. My morning cup is typically 10 ounces.
the NotSoAncient Bottom Line …
Doesn’t look like much, but WOW! (That’s what she said) Could be said of the Aeropress and now the JavaJug too. This combo is unassuming but each so well thought-out and executed, they’ve won the crown of becoming my current daily brew method of choice.
More than reasonably priced, the JavaJug is the perfect gift for all the Aeropressing coffee lovers in your life … Even if that’s you 🙂
Two big thumbs up!
