Aeropress Experiments

I have seen these around for awhile. Finally the chance to try one out. I have been experimenting with the AeroPress single serve coffee brewer.IMG_0090

Conclusions so far:

  • Relatively fast
  • Unbreakable brewer
  • Cleans up easy
  • Makes espresso style rather than ‘regular’ style coffee
  • Approx. 10g of ground coffee per shot
  • If you want a larger cup of coffee it needs to be “Americano” style – add water
  • Mug needs to be sturdy with a large mouth
  • Not happy with the use of paper filters (I have yet to try the metal disques made by Able for the AeroPress)
  • Taste is pretty good, especially at a finer grind (home espresso grind here in the shop)
  • Should be good for camping
