Re: Aeropress Help Needed Please

If you like the smoothness of the Aeropress-there is one coffeemaker that is better.
I dont say this lightly.

It will make more cups at a time and the filter is washable.
I changed out the burner for it to a butane burner.

The coffee is so smooth yet rich.

I put the coffee in as the water is rising. Stir once.. leave for 1 minute.. stir again and remove from the heat.
Drink.



I have bought about 12 units from this company.
Staff gifts. I use two in the clinic.

No need for an entertainment system with one of those on board .

Re: Aeropress Help Needed Please

Too late now, but I find myself wondering whether you might have been able to find a metal, or maybe plastic, cap of same diameter as the Aeropress and merely punched the holes in that...

Re: Aeropress Help Needed Please

I switched from a French Press to a paper filter triangle thingie over a cup. Why? Because French Presses and other contraptions do NOT remove cholesterol.

Re: Aeropress Help Needed Please

That Syphon video made it look like a very involved process with a lot of hassle. I get great results from my Aeropress by pouring the water in, stirring it up well with the included stirrer, and just letting it drip through on it's own instead of pressing it. It also gets to sit for 5 min. or so, like he does with the Syphon and it cools a little bit. I don't use the plunger most of the time, and I don't invert it. Just let gravity do it's thing while answering emails.

eh?

Put hot water in the bottom vessel. Fit top vessel with filter in and coffee.
Add heat to bottom. Water rises to top vessel in 30 seconds. Leave for 1 minute. stir, remove heat.
Fills bottom vessel in about 1 minute. Pour..........

Total time: about 4 minutes..... 2 large mugs of coffee.

That guy used a stove, tea kettle, burner for the syphon, Fluke with thermal probe, stirrer, and all the the parts of the syphon (top vessel? bottom vessel? Calling Dr Frankenstein LOL) which are mostly glass. Then a flask and finally, a coffee cup. I'm surprised he didn't use a couple more flasks, a distilling coil, a few beakers and a Van De Graaf generator.

I just use a stove and tea kettle, pour it into the Aeropress, stir it and let it drip.

I can just see the post now: "I lost my Syphon bottom vessel, but hubby is going to fashion a new one out of an empty Patron bottle!"

Here's a sneak peek of the soon to be released "Syphon Deluxe."



J/K! Just having a Sun. morning laugh! LOL

What is the grind that you use for your Aeropress?

Currently, I've got a couple lbs of Folgers ground coffee that I'm still trying to use up. I throw it into a 110v grinder and grind it for another 30-40 seconds, so it's very fine. I bought Folger's because my Mom was staying with me for a while, and that's her favorite.

Folger's isn't the best, but I'm too cheap to throw it away. LOL

You are not the first member to remark that coffee just trickles through on its own (I think Dockhead mentioned this on another thread). If this occurs, an Aeropress just becomes a fancy funnel with a filter. The brew is quite different emerging under pressure.

I always make two cups at a time, so two spoonfuls of coffee are being used. Also I wet the filter first, before adding coffee. Maybe that (along with very finely ground espresso coffee - Lavazza Gold or Illy) means the filter 'clogs' quickly. Perhaps about half a teaspoon trickles out when the water is first poured in. It drips at a rate of no more than a few drops per minute after that. I would be waiting until the cows came home and still wouldn't have a cupful to drink if I simply left it sitting there.

The bottom line is whether or not your technique produces a coffee you enjoy and whether or not it is worth the trouble of doing anything to improve it . Sounds like you are happy, so I didn't comment on this earlier.
