Step one, throw out the directions.

Step two, use inverted method.

Enjoy.

I have now made 700+ cups with my aeropress and it's held up perfectly. That's a lot of money saved from my previous habit of buying coffee/espresso out everyday.

Freezing is fine, just put it in a freezer ziplock first. When you pull it out finally, leave it out.

yeah...my first try with the aeropress using the folgers that i had on hand was

second try was better.......and as i said, above somewhere, that some experimentation was in order to yeild best results

i have yet to try the inverted method...but THAT seems to be the way that will yeild the results that im looking for

im sick as a dog...got the flu, here

and i wasnt hungry....everything tastes...blah...i made tea, but it didnt taste good.....so i made some coffee and it tasted good and made me feel better

thanks Nate

This +1-hundred-finity!

I don't think I have ever made it the "correct" way. I have had coffee from an aeropress made the way the instructions say, but that was stale preground coffee at my aunt's house when I didn't know I would be having coffee. My coffee (was buying Poison's coffee at the time) was less than 10 minute walk from me at my grandmother's house!

I will say that having one of those at the sink hot water sources was cool. My aunt drinks A LOT of tea and has a 190degree water source at the sink.

Also, I have a chance to brew a beer with my B.I.L. on New Years Eve this year, and I have asked if I could bring some home-roasted coffee for a coffee stout. What region would you suggest and roast levels? I know it's not as critical as for a cuppa or an espresso, but I still would like to contribute to a damn good brew. My B.I.L. wins several homebrew competitions a year, and I don't want to eff up on this...

A winey, blackberry-ish Kenya would be awesome.

As in let it drip more to hit 2oz? I'm going to play with the grind just a tad now. It is smoother I have to say than the eight o clock beans and the puck does't smell as burnt at the end. I don't suppose it's a bad thing, but I didn't expect the roast to be that dry, the dark italian roast I was using is rather oily. It makes cleaning the grinder a bit easier I think.

It's hard to tell the color and quantity from the vid. Was that two oz?

Yeah, the perspective throws it off. Those are 2oz cups, well a bit under the brim is 2. about where I flipped the switch off. I don't have the fancy clear double wall cups

Ah, OK. Watch the streams of espresso; when they start to blonde, turn it off, or a bit before. Also, you can play with the taste by running water through the group until the sputtering stops, inserting the portafilter, and brewing. You can make the brew temp hotter and colder that way; typically hotter = less acidity, colder = more acidity. If it tastes burnt, brew cooler; if it's sour, brew hotter.

Hmm ok, my normal MO has been to run a double through the group and letting the light turn back on, then I put put my other portafilter in and go.

Cool. You can play with the temp by letting it heat up more or less after the light goes on. On an e61 like the astra, when the water stops sputtering it's 198, and every second you wait thereafter it's a 1 degree increase. I don't know exactly what it would be on your machine, but the concept is similar.

If I checked the water temp in the cup below after it drips out of the filter/handle, what temp should I look for on the thermometer?

Don't bother, just go by taste.

Haha, well in that case I'm just going to try and slow the shot down a tad, the taste has been pretty good on the 2 I've done so far.

Thanks for recommending the Gaggia, Nate. It just arrived and I pulled a quick shot (guessing with the grind fineness and tamp) and to my surprise my very first pull tasted great! I was expecting to have hours of fiddling with it. The build quality is excellent and all the important bits seem pretty heavy duty.

I'm currently using some locally roasted espresso beans (2 weeks old now), when I run through them I'll have to order some WCR.

Excellent! Gaggias are so awesome, and easy to work with. If you had bought a Silvia your message would probably be totally different.

Double poison quote under the sick Scotty! Feel less icky Uncle! We enjoyed the crap out of the COE #2 today. Fan-freaking-tastic. I love my Ethiopian coffees, but this is most excellent. We have had my mom here for the week. She has immensely enjoyed the different coffees. Thanks Poison, keepin' me up late on a Christmas-eve. Zoom. Zoom.
