There is a trick to the Aeropress

Robert introduced me to Aeorobie’s Aeropress coffee maker. For $26 it is a great deal. I use it almost daily (and maybe sometimes twice).

It produces a strong espresso-like coffee. Heather likes it with Lavazza Super Crema Espresso. She mixes it soy and a flavoring. Personally, I use it to make Americano style coffee.

The Aeropress is simple to operate. My formula is to grind very fine coffee, add nearly boiling water, don’t stir. Wait twenty seconds, then press the plunger. The trick is that depending on the type of coffee you are making, you want to stir or not stir. I find not stirring provides less acidic and slightly more flavorful tasting coffee.
