If you want to use it for the /single serve brewing purpose, then I think aeropress is the best what you can get else you sincerely need multiple cup brewer, which are also available in the market and you can choose according to your needs.
Aeropress comprise a wide mouth which can save you from spills and mess. After using the aeropress for a while it became clear why they gave such a structure and polypropylene body. If the body would be of glass or stainless steel it directly would have affected the durability and the price. So by providing such body folks increased simplicity and the uniqueness of this coffee maker.
After all, one who is fond of brewing the coffee manually; aeropress is the best medium they can have. The small structure grants ease in washing and again brewing with in a less span of time. The ability to choose the volume and the grind size makes it favorite for me. I’ve been using paper filters, but metal filters are also available for the dark groomed coffee. The micro filter it uses offers an esthetic drop to drip brewed coffee, which helps to abandon the bitter taste and will please you with perfect drops of brewed coffee
