I concur with NeoXerxes . I've tried the aeropress and I prefer the pour over. As for technique its not that hard and there are plenty of videos on youtube - I posted one earlier in this thread that shows the method I use. Ratios are important so a decent scale is necessary and the Hario goose neck kettle while not an absolute necessity its pretty nice to have as it gives way better pour control than a big spout. You can even get electric goose neck kettles with variable temperature control which can be handy if you are, or have in the house, a tea freak that wants different teas steeped at different temperatures. You would only need one pot instead of two. Its not really a hassle and I enjoy the process almost as much as the end product. Its always interesting to watch the coffee bloom as you pour water on it - its an exercise in mindfulness
