Measuring the weight of coffee is more precise than using scoops but I think the precision of scoops is good enough for most people. A rounded AeroPress scoop, which is our recommendation, holds about 14 grams of ground coffee.
- previous post: Hey Alan, Long time fan of the Aeropress here. It's a life saver. I always take it with me on deployments and normally end up having to make coffee for the other guys after they give it a try. Just discovered your cold brew method. What kind of roast do you recommend for the cold brewing method i.e. light, medium, dark . . . .? – From John H.
- next post: I have to use all my strength plus upper body weight to depress the plunger. Sometimes brew shoots out the sides of the top of cup in the process. I follow all Aeropress instructions, use both inverted and upright press positions, and Starbucks ground coffee. I store the maker with plunger inside tube and use Aeropress filters. I have read several letters from others who were unable to resolve the issue. What do you recommend? P.S. The coffee once made is very good, though. I don't want to give up on it. Thanks. – From Christine D.
