Hello. I’m enjoying my AeroPress coffee maker. I’ve been nuking 1.5 cups of water to 185 degrees, then pouring to the 1 cup mark. Then adding the rest of the water to the cup after plunging. Question: Could I use room temp water for the whole process, then nuke the finished product and get the same tasty results? If so, it saves a bit of time. I also add 1/4 cup of nuked half and half at the end. The finer the grind the better. Thank you! – From Pamela G.

Yes, we now recommend that people try brewing with room temp water. The brew is delicious and very smooth. Increase your stirring time to one or two minutes when using room temperature water to get full flavor. This may defeat your objective of saving time.
