JavaJug2 Review: the best accessory for the Aeropress just got Better

0 Posted by - Coffee, Reviews & Buyers Guides, Travel Hacks & Gadgets

I’ve been using the original JavaJug daily for years, and was saddened to learn they were not available for purchase for some time. Then I was contacted by the makers and asked if I’d be interested in reviewing the updated JavaJug2. As a believer and daily user of the original JavaJug it was a no-brainer. I’m glad to see a small specialty company that continues to tweak the little things to make a great product even greater.

WHAT IS IT?

The JavaJug2 is an Aeropress aid:
+ stable base
+ measuring cup
+ coffee warmer
+ travel case

WHY IT MATTERS:

  • no more Aeropress mess when making multiple cups of coffee
  • tidy kitchen and travel: keeps all Aeropress parts in one place
  • food-grade stainless steel and dishwasher safe = cook/heat and easy to clean

WHO IT’S FOR:

Anyone with an Aeropress

WHAT’S NEW:

  • flanged lip – easier on the wrist when hand washing
  • more laser-etched measuring lines now in mL and oz
  • stainless steel lid now included (30mL to measure creamer etc)
  • neoprene sleeve includes velcro closure to secure lid for travel or strap grinder handle
  • Dual tab fit with Aeropress: lid is tighter when Aeropress is shifted closer to the spout side
  • Perfect size/shape for receiving crushed ice from my fridge

CONCLUSION:

Hate to sound like a fan-boy, but since I use of my JavaJug multiple times daily, I always hand-wash, I didn’t know of the original version’s limitation of not being dishwasher safe. The original JavaJug was already my must-have recommended Aeropresser’s tool, so the updated JavaJug2 definitely gets the nod.

VERDICT

Great gift for all Aeropress owners (even if that’s you 🙂

TWO THUMBS WAY UP!
