I know there's hype, but I still like it. Two papers seems bothersome and I enjoy the amount (3-4 cups). Most people like their coffee hot, but I actually love having a pot of lukewarm coffee lying around and drinking it throughout the morning.
I would love to put the douchebags who made the video through a blind test ("so one of these bloomed and dripped the horror, while the other was bloomed perfectly, no drip, just like you recommend. pick them out by taste alone").
Anyway, if you like Chemex I won't tell you it sucks. Hell, I have a Chemex clone (Hario Drip Pot). But chemex paper is pure fraud. For people who don't give a shit about aesthetics, they should get a plain drip cone and regular paper. If you like to make 4 cups, get a carafe to drip into. If you don't like plastics there are ceramic or glass drip cones as well.
Aeropress is great technology and I don't see any reason it wouldn't make as good a coffee as any other drip method.
