- Paper filters are included with Aeropress, which will remove of the oils and coffee fines to produce a cleaner flavor with lighter body. For people who prefer a heavy body, resuable stainless steel filters are available.
- For the standard method, you'll want a fine grind that is slightly coarser than espresso. For the inverted, you'll want a grind that is slightly coarser than the coffee filter grind.
- The Aeropress is ideal for experimenting with different water temperatures for brewing. Some recipes call for water as low as 80 C while you can brew as high as 94 C.
- The Aeropress also makes great iced coffee. Fill a cup with 110 ml of ice. Using the inverted method, brew 15g of coffee with 110 ml of water and press over the cup.
