The secret behind the recipe

How can AeroPress make cold brew in a couple minutes when other devices take hours? The key is the long stir time and using a fine grind of coffee. Optimizing the contact between the surface of the coffee grounds and the water quickly enables delicious flavor extraction from the grounds. It's harder to extract flavor using room temperature water but the brisk one minute stir overcomes that challenge.
