Any idea why the Aeropress seems to favor higher concentrations? The only way I’ve made great Aeropress coffee at a 16:1 to 17:1 brew ratio is by diluting the brew afterward. Am I missing something? Thanks!
I thought it was better to put the coffe and the hot water in the Aeropress in an upside-down position, and reverse it all when ready to press down, in order not to have any coffee starting pouring through the filter before the actual ‘press down’ action??
I noticed you listed 215 grams of water and visually it appears you filled it about 3/4 of the way full. I measured out 215 grams of water on a scale and with it being completely full barely topped out at 210 grams. Either I have an awful scale or there is something I’m not doing right. I’m curious, was the weight of the Aeropress included in your numbers?
I think I might be turning too anal on this whole coffee-brewing (and I partly blame Scott Rao). Do you get a consistent extraction with this process? It seems like the violent stir which keeps the coffee going in turbulence throughout the entire 45 sec brew would result in a very uncontrolable agitation?
Jeg har en Wilfa CGR-1-kaffekvern, som du anbefaler, hvilken malingsgrad vil du anbefale på den? Medium fin kvernet på Wilfa er vel ikke det samme som på f.eks. en kvern som brukes til å kverne til espresso?
Great video Tim!
I’ve found this method to work very well though like all methods the grinder is usually the weak link for home baristas. Espresso grinders typically don’t make very good fine drip, drip or french press grinds as the particle sizes are all over the map.
Weilfa kvernen kan ikke sammenlignes med en espressokvern. Den kverner grovere og egner seg ikke til espresso. Alle kverner er i tillegg ikke helt likt kalibrert.
I tillegg må du kverne forskjellig til ulike bryggemetoder. Rask bryggemetode = finere malingsgrad. Langsom bryggemetode = grovere.
