I recommend stirring for about 10 seconds and then pressing without delay. The short wet time helps to make AeroPress coffee less bitter than other brewing methods.
- previous post: This is a suggestion rather than a question. One issue I have with the Aeropress is that the plunger does not stay perfectly concentric with the cylinder. When it tips it has a tendency to lose the air seal and even allow liquid to leak past the seal. This could be solved by adding 4 veins, or ribs that have a close fit to the cylinder, running lengthwise along the outside of the plunger and keep it in perfect alignment. I know making a new die is an expensive proposition, but at whatever time you make a new model you might consider adding this feature. Have you already considered this option and rejected it for reasons I can't forsee? – From David C.
- next post: Three questions: 1. How can I purchase the sieve that holds the filter paper that fits on the main tube? 2. I am currently using a Fellow filter and find that the pressure is such that it is difficult if not impossible to plunge the plunger all the way down. 3. What is the correct setting on an Encore Baratza burr mill for grinding coffee to use with Aeropress? – From Philippe de L.
