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.
- previous post: I just bought an Aeropress and have used it several times; still experimenting with what works best. I've used two spoonfuls from the plastic spoon that came with a 4-cup drip coffeemaker I used previously. I use a fine to medium grind, and notice that after pouring in the hot water in the cylinder, I can leave it alone and do my other breakfast preparation (about 3-4 minutes), and when I come back to the Aeropress, the water has completely drained into the coffee mug below, so I don't need to use the plunger. However, I notice the coffee is weaker. I think the water is seeping through too quickly. If there was more dwell time like in the drip coffee maker cup filter, it might make for a richer coffee. I wonder if you can make the plastic filter with smaller or fewer holes, so the coffee grind can interact with the water a little longer. – From Leslie O.
