Try one half scoop and water to #1. Stir and press verrrry gently. If that works, you might try a full scoop. But you must press very gently.
- previous post: Hi Alan, I've been using one Aeropress (and 2 seals) since 2014, and I've returned to it each time I've tested an alternative. Would you recommend wetting the grounds before adding the hot water? Have you performed blind tests on this particular aspect? – From Philippe L.
- next post: First a few comments – I've been using Aeropress for over 10 years, since a roaster friend of mine in Paris told me – either spend 1,200 euro for a good espresso machine, or buy an Aeropress. Hmmm. Haven't looked back. I use a hand grinder (just switched today to a 1ZPresso mini that also fits into the barrel. Also, I find a 6 grams of water for 1 gram of coffee ratio to work out really well. If I do over 25 grams, I add a few grams of water. I'm also an inverted brewer – I like keeping all the water in the device until I'm ready to push it out. My question is – are there any "hacks" from the community of users that you've adopted yourself? Any favorites that you found improved things? – From Ted M.
